    iP-od on usb 2.0


    i am trying to use my ip-od on linux. this is what dmesg gives me.
    Code:
    usb 5-7: new high speed USB device using address 2
    Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
    scsi1 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
      Vendor: Apple     Model: iP-od              Rev: 1.62
      Type:   Direct-Access                      ANSI SCSI revision: 02
    SCSI device sda: 78126048 512-byte hdwr sectors (40001 MB)
    sda: Write Protect is off
    sda: Mode Sense: 64 00 00 08
    sda: assuming drive cache: write through
    then i did:
    # rmmod usb-storage
    # modprobe usb-storage
    # cd /mnt
    # mkdir ip-od

    so when i tried to mount it using:
    # mount -t vfat /dev/sda2 ip-od
    it says:
    mount: special device /dev/sda2 does not exist

    i mean the real name when i write ip-od. the forum doesnt alllow the full name

    Are you sure the usb_storage module is the only module? Maybe the i-Pod needs an additional one?

    Have you made it into a "Windows i-Pod"? If you haven't, you'll need to recompile your kernel with support for HFS+ and mac partition tables. Or you can convert it:
