additional plugin required when using ipod

I'm trying to use Rhythumbox Music Player to play audio with an ipod. When I try to play music I get a message that I'm missing a decoder.
MPEG-4 ACC decoder and MPEG-1 Layer 3 decoder.

Using FC11, with nvidia graphics.

I have the same problem. I have installed Gtkpod, Banshee, xmms, xmms2, Rhythmbox, etc. but still not able to manage my ipod. I am able to see my ipod playlist on Rhythmbox but i am not able to import a file from my hard drive to Rhythmbox library. I have searching for help all over the internet ; but all in vain. Can Fedora 11 connect to an ipod (mine is not a touch device).

Please help.
