Ah woo thanks very much!

This will keep me going. I am going to  get the rythmbox source, i only really need to get enough ipod io features so i can just read what songs are on the ipod and write new ones to it, and thats it. Thing is because aTunes is al written in java going to have to read though this code for a while and make a java library to get IPod_IO.

Thanks loads guys i might drop some messages about use of those ipod libraries you told me.

There are API docs for libgpod in the libgpod source.  Your distro may
install them and make them available with devhelp even.

The gtkpod source is a pretty complete example of how to use libgpod.
Perhaps for a start, looking at the code in rhythmbox might be easier.
Rhythmbox uses libgpod for ipod support, though it doesn't do all the
things gtkpod does.  So there is less code to have to peruse to get a
handle on basic usage.

Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician.
