Thanks for the reply John,
Reformatting it to fat32 wasn't necessary and working, restoring the device under windows converted it to vfat32 anyway and mounting the device with the uuid will mount it as read write :
UUID=A88B-3652 /media/IPod auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
##UUID is listed under /dev/disk/by-uuid/
But gtkpod gives a checksum error while loading ipod, i guess ipod nano touch(red) isn't supported yet, i also tried banshee and rhythmbox players but they show as they are syncing the music and when i look in the music folders in the ipod i see the music files, but when i disconnect the ipod it doesn't have any songs in it.
I guess i have to wait a little bit for the device to be supported by the music players, let me know if you find any other solution.......
