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
/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.
