Couple of questions first.

Is this a FAT formatedd Ipod or HFS?

What does the fstab line look like? (post here).

have you tried manually mounting it? You're not seeing any files because most likley it isn't mounted.

I have no problems with my ipod. I use Slack, so I set things up manually, but it should work the same.

When I connect the ipod, it shows up as /dev/sda2. You can confirm this through dmesg.
I created the mount point at /mnt/ipod.
I added an entry into the fstab
Code:
/dev/sda2         /mnt/ipod      vfat        noauto,user     0   0
Then to mount it. mount /mnt/ipod.

One thing to check is for the usb mass storage module. check lsmod for it (it should load atuomatically).
If you still get errors, post exactly what your'e getting. That helps everyone know how to help you.

I can't really help as I don't use firewire. I do recommend searching this site (if you already haven't). I have seen a number of threads dealing with this.

Good luck.
