The --filter option specifies a filter rule, not the name of a file containing rules. You can specify a file of filter rules like this:

--filter=". name-of-file"

where "name-of-file" would be ".ipodsyncfilter" in your case. These will also work for simple include/exclude patterns; not sure about protect:


Additionally, I've never used the protect feature, but it looks like that line should be more like "P .rockbox".
