[root@localhost paul]# mount -t vfat /dev/sda2 ipod
mount: /dev/sda2: can't read superblock
What does this mean?

Do you mean, what does this command mean?

mount -t vfat says to mount a partition, and the filesystem type (t) is vfat. /dev/sda2 is the partition it is trying to mount, and ipod is what folder it's trying to mount it to.

you may want to go into /dev and see if there are any sda entries, or read your dmesg and see if it says anything about a usb connection / vfat / anything interesting to get pointed into the right direction..

the can't read superblock means it just can't read it. more than likely it just doesn't exist.
