Thanks for the question!

Have you tried to plug the ipod into your system yet? Noticed any results? Usually, ipods are auto-mounted.

To find out what is happening when you plug your ipod into your system, including mount point, open up a terminal and run the command:

tail -f /var/log/messages

You should see a message there when you plug the device in. You can also use System > Preferences > Hardware information

hi there, thank you for helping out

when I plug in my Ipod the program Rythmbox does see the Ipod immediatley
and a Ipod icon is shown on my desktop, I can see all my songs but when
trying to play a song the program races through all the titles and puts a
"no access" symbol in front of them.
when checking whether the Ipod is "hooke up" it says it is, but cannot
access the settings tab, shows grey.

thanks again !
