    Comment for Ubuntu Linux 9.10 –

    Rhythmbox will do the same job if you’re using Ubuntu Linux. Drag and drop the songs you would like to rip from the iPod to the section headed ‘Library’. Rhythmbox will then automatically create properly named folders for the collection, located in the user’s ‘Music’ folder on the /home/username/Music folder.

    If you try and copy directly from the iPod’s music list located in Rhythmbox to a particular folder on the hard drive, the result will be unhelpfully-named files.
