iPhone won't recognise transferred data

Reported by Librarian | March 9th, 2011 @ 12:13 AM

I have an iPhone 4G with 4.2.1. Currently, it appears to mount and is recognised in Banshee and rythmbox. The iPhone appears to sync in both programs (in Banshee it does not unsync however; it freezes?) and the songs transfer to the device, but they do not appear when I check the ipod. iPhone just doesn't seem to recognise them.

I've installed libimobiledevice 1.0.4, run unpair pair validate, followed basically all suggestions on this page... no dice. Any help would be appreciated :)

    • Tag set to dbversion 5, iphone 4, hashab, libgpod
    • State changed from “new” to “invalid”

    If your device mounts on the Desktop libimobiledevice is working fine.
    Music synchronization is handled by libgpod and it currently does not support writing the music database for devices with DBVersion > 5.

    You can verify which DBVersion you have using:

    ideviceinfo -q com.apple.mobile.iTunes -k DBVersion
