IPod mounts to wrong place, gtkpod can't read DB.

Quick Ipod question, I'm sure it will simple for someone to answer.

I've just plugged my ipod into my FC4 machine and mounted it using Disk Managment. I clicked on read existing database and it couldn't find one. I did a little searching and gtkpod wants to read the ipod from /mnt/ipod .... but my ipod automatically mounts to /media/ipod...

BTW: the media dir is also where my Cd's and thumb drives show up.

Is there any way I can either tell the ipod to mount in the /mnt dir, or point gtkpod to the /media dir?


EDIT: nevermind that... I found it in the preferences. I have another problem now which I will post seperately.
