gtkpod unable to use ipod nano

hi i have a windows formatted nano, trying to connect to gtkpod on archlinux.
this is in my fstab:

/dev/ipod /mnt/ipod vfat sync,nodev,nosuid,user,rw,noauto 0 0

this is in my /etc/udev/rules.d/10-ipod.rules:

BUS=="scsi", SYSFS{vendor}="Apple*", SYSFS{model}="iPod*", KERNEL="sd?2", NAME="%k", SYMLINK+="ipod", MODE="0660", GROUP="users"

i appearently don't have a iTunesDB on it, coz that's what gtkpod complains about. also when i try to create on form the file menu
"create iPod directories" it gives me permisson denied. if i start gtkpod as root it doesn't give errors but it also doesn' write anything to the ipod.
what can i do to make this thing work?
any help is greatly appreciated,
Thank you,

I had to plug mine into a mac to get it to initialise - from then on it worked with gtkpod (once I had loaded the hfs module)
