That just means you're using an outdated version of libgpod which does not
understand the iPod's encrypted database, and so cannot write to it properly.
The database gets corrupted and it looks like there's nothing on it.
You just need to upgrade to a newer version of libgpod. You should drop by the
IRC channel at #gtkpod, that's where I got help so many months ago when I was
running into the same problem.
