    iPod mounting issue

    I'm very new to ubuntu and I've been trying to get my iPod to work.
    I'm using Ubuntu 10.1.
    I have both GTKpod and Amarok. I put in the command sudo mkdir /media/iPod in the terminal then I added
    /dev/sdc2 /media/iPod vfat nosuid,noauto,nodev,rw,umask=077,gid=1000,uid=1000 ,user,defaults,noatime,iocharset=utf8 0 0
    to my fstab. The iPod showed up in places but then when I try to open it I get an error message
    Unable to mount iPod
    mount: special device /dev/sdc2 does not exist

    Basically, I have no idea what to do now. If someone could please explain to me what exactly to do that'd be great.

    plug in your ipod and then do
    Code:
    fdisk -l
    note:where "-l" is lowercase of "-L"
    post here teh results. you probably just have assigned the wrong device name.

    my bad can repeat the command using "sudo fdisk -l"
    sometimes without sudo may give different results

    ohh pk i suppose u r using a wubi install right? your ipod does not show up in the devices. does you ipod has an "Mount as disk media" when you connect it to the pc. Check the connection options. It's been a while that i do not use an ipod...

    edit: what kind(generation) of Ipod do you have?
