Thank you for the response,
I just sort of figured out the problem.
My computer has only 2 usb ports. I have 4 usb devices, printer, mouse, ipod, and pda. I bought a belkin 4 port multiplug usb adapter and had the ipod plugged into the belkin unit.
Linux somehow is not mounting to the ipod through the belking unit. When I plugged the ipod directly into the usb port on my computer it works. My printer has the same problem. My mouse works on it.
That is why the bus info shows 3:1.3.
I am not sure if it is possible to get the ipod and printer to work on the belkin multi usb port.
