Moving and Copying Files to an iPod
Amarok should be able to detect your iPod if you can mount the iPod to the file system. You should see the iPod collection under the Local Music collections area. Take care not to click the "Toggle unified view mode" switch.
To move or copy files to your connected iPod from the computer, simply right click the item in your desktop's local file collection and choose "Copy to Collection" or "Move to Collection" and then select your "iPod" in the extended menu choice.
