I've seen a similar sort of occurance on machines that are unable to supply
the power through the USB port that the attached device requires (such as
60gb "palm-drives" or laptop hard drives in cradles that are powered by the
interface), however as the ipod is self-powered I wouldn't expect this to be
Might be something worth taking a look at. If you know of someone with a
newer machine or one with USB2.0 ports, give it a try and see what happens.

My 1 gig memory stick is an iPod shuffle. I'd like to use it to listen to
files loaded from a Linux machine.
I'm having trouble with it on my AMDK6/400 box under a 2.4.27 kernel.
It seems to mount and work for a while, but soon after I try to copy files
it, I get a;
Filesystem panic (dev 08:01)
... in /var/log/messages and it remounts itself as read-only.
This makes using it a tad tricky. Does anyone have any iPod/Linux
or relevant Large USB Flash Memory Thing experience that may be brought to
I have had this happen with 0~80 meg of files on it.
It does appear to work as expected on a Windows XP machine, so I have doubts
about the iPod being the culprit.
