Thanks for your response:

I'll remove and reinstall Gtkpod using Synaptic Package Manager and try again.  I am guessing that I'll have to remove some of the pref. files on my own.

Also, when dragging and dropping the the songs from the ipod, are the ID3 tags retained?

Subject: Re: [Gtkpod-questions] iTunesDB question

Just connect the ipod to the computer and open Gtkpod. It will ask you wether to create iTunesDB, click OK. iTunesDB is a XML file with links to every song in the ipod. Later, you can copy all the songs in the ipod to your PC music library just by dragging and dropping them in gtkpod.

I've setup gtkpod_aac, but have some questions regarding the iTunesDB. 

[1.] Is this a file or directory?  I believe it is a file.

[2.] If I am unable to retrieve the original iTunesDB from the Win XP laptop, what is the recommended course of action for creating a new iTunesDB?
