Im trying to use an ipod mini (1st gen I believe) to mount. I would like to be able to just mount and then copy from my ~/music into it. I keep error messages about wrong file type, so here goes:

ubuntu 9.04
fluxbox

gnome does auto detect it, but the results are inconsistent in gnome for me, and I cant put rockbox on it with out a mount point that works.

results of mount attempt:

$ mount ipod
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdd2,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

gparted recognises it as /dev/sdd2 and fat32. Im at a loss,
