This seems to be a duplicate of bug 246086 which is more generally describing the same problem.

Amarok 2.4-GIT, kubuntu 10.10, iPod 2g nano. Did not have a FLAC file like the reporter but decided to try same action with an OGG file. Attempted to copy an OGG file to my iPod without transcoding. Expected error message either “unsupported file” or the faulty error message as reported. Instead, Amarok appeared to copy the file to the device, unsure if it transcoded. When I went to play the track on the the iPod , it could not be found. Couldn't find it in the Amarok collection pane. When I try to recopy the OGG file Amarok repots the track is already on the device, even though it can't be seen.
Comment 4 Myriam Schweingruber 2011-01-05 11:18:52 UTC
Amarok does not transcode automatically, you need to select transcoding in the Copy to collection dialog. Did you try this? The function is available in the latest 2.4-git version.

Oops, forgot to bump the version, sorry.
Comment 6 Matěj Laitl 2011-10-20 13:06:30 UTC
Myriam, it seems that these transcoding features are now offered only for organisable collections. (which iPod is not) I will look at least at the error messages and to make iPod refuse formats it does not understand.

Git commit 9bfe431375630655047ea8681a12ff6bd5422839 by Matěj Laitl. Committed on 15/04/2012 at 12:24. Pushed by laitl into branch 'master'. Complete iPod collection rewrite (also supports iPad, iPhone) This is a result of 3-month effort to make Amarok iPod-like device support future-proof and less buggy by using more modern MemoryMeta framework to manage tracks internally. The new plugin still uses libgpod  to access the devices and supports all devices supported by it. The newest models may need the infamous libashab.so library. FEATURES: * Small configuration dialog for iPods that shows troubleshooting information and allows to change iPod name. * Improved usability of iPod playlists: iPod collection automatically transfers tracks dropped to iPod playlists to iPod when it is needed. * Tracks can now be transcoded when transferring them to iPod. CHANGES: * optional libgpod dependency raised to 0.8.2 to support newest iPods. * Amarok now prevents accidental unmounting of iPods in (small) time-frames when iTunes database on iPod is not yet updated. * Amarok detects when iPod is to be ejected from system and gracefully disconnects it when it occurs. * Hitting the eject button on iPod collection ejects it also from the system. * iPod collection now detects whether iPod is safe to write and marks iPod as read-only if not. This prevents "iPod shows 0 tracks" problem. * Correct progress bar advancement when transferring tracks to iPod. * iPod Collection supports multiple simultaneous cancellable transfers. * Improved dialog to initialize iPod. BUGFIXES: * Detection and elimination of stale and orphaned iPod tracks now works correctly; users are notified about these when iPod is plugged in. * iPod playlists now work correctly. * Show correct error when transferring unsupported files to iPod.  http://www.gtkpod.org/wiki/Libgpod Related: bug 291722, bug 139454, bug 219963, bug 279797, bug 289304 FIXED-IN: 2.6 DIGEST: Amarok's iPod support is completely rewritten fixing many bugs and adding features M +3 -2 CMakeLists.txt M +21 -0 ChangeLog M +2 -2 README M +1 -1 src/core-impl/collections/CMakeLists.txt A +80 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/CMakeLists.txt A +642 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/IpodCollection.cpp [License: GPL (v2+)] A +260 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/IpodCollection.h [License: GPL (v2+)] A +259 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/IpodCollectionFactory.cpp [License: GPL (v2+)] A +93 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/IpodCollectionFactory.h [License: GPL (v2+)] A +119 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/IpodCollectionLocation.cpp [License: GPL (v2+)] A +74 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/IpodCollectionLocation.h [License: GPL (v2+)] A +845 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/IpodMeta.cpp [License: GPL (v2+)] A +327 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/IpodMeta.h [License: GPL (v2+)] A +141 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/IpodMetaEditCapability.cpp [License: GPL (v2+)] A +63 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/IpodMetaEditCapability.h [License: GPL (v2+)] A +248 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/IpodPlaylist.cpp [License: GPL (v2+)] A +113 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/IpodPlaylist.h [License: GPL (v2+)] A +496 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/IpodPlaylistProvider.cpp [License: GPL (v2+)] A +114 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/IpodPlaylistProvider.h [License: GPL (v2+)] A +24 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/amarok_collection-ipodcollection.desktop A +1 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/config-ipodcollection.h.cmake A +414 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/jobs/IpodCopyTracksJob.cpp [License: GPL (v2+)] A +108 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/jobs/IpodCopyTracksJob.h [License: GPL (v2+)] A +69 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/jobs/IpodDeleteTracksJob.cpp [License: GPL (v2+)] A +46 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/jobs/IpodDeleteTracksJob.h [License: GPL (v2+)] A +83 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/jobs/IpodParseTracksJob.cpp [License: GPL (v2+)] A +49 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/jobs/IpodParseTracksJob.h [License: GPL (v2+)] A +33 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/jobs/IpodWriteDatabaseJob.cpp [License: GPL (v2+)] A +37 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/jobs/IpodWriteDatabaseJob.h [License: GPL (v2+)] A +205 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/support/IphoneMountPoint.cpp [License: GPL (v2+)] A +53 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/support/IphoneMountPoint.h [License: GPL (v2+)] A +229 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/support/IpodConfiguration.ui A +466 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/support/IpodDeviceHelper.cpp [License: GPL (v2+)] A +102 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/support/IpodDeviceHelper.h [License: GPL (v2+)] A +58 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/support/IpodTranscodeCapability.cpp [License: GPL (v2+)] A +49 -0 src/core-impl/collections/ipodcollection/support/IpodTranscodeCapability.h [License: GPL (v2+)] http://commits.kde.org/amarok/9bfe431375630655047ea8681a12ff6bd5422839
