Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and helping to make Ubuntu better. Examining the information you have given us, this does not appear to be a bug report so we are closing it and converting it to a question in the support tracker. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but it would make more sense to raise problems you are having in the support tracker at https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu if you are uncertain if they are bugs.

iTunes isn't compatible with Ubuntu though you could try running it in Wine. I'd recommend giving the Banshee media player a try, which should sync well with your iPod and allow you to purchase music from online stores, though not the iTunes store. Or, you might want to stick with a Windows/OSX dual boot partition for managing your iPod until the situation improves, hopefully with the next release of Ubuntu (9.10, Karmic Koala) when Banshee 1.5/1.6 is perhaps included.

+1 for banshee with media transport protocol enabled ( mtp plugin) which is also an option in rhythmbox....

I thought it was usually possible to find most music free through a search-engine, perhaps google or something?

Maybe i just have the wrong tastes in music tho ;)

You can also use rhythmbox to purchase music from the Jamendo and Magnatune stores, or use an online retailer like cdbaby.

Can you help with this problem?
