I don't have a functioning HD, so I recorded the Ubuntu live. I can browse internet and all that perfectly, as expected, BUT, when I try to mount my iPod I get:

Error mounting: mount: unknown filesystem type 'vfat'

Is this what is meant to happen if I am using the Ubuntu Live CD, or may I tweek it so that it works?

Many thanks in advance! (Hearing lectures when I am outdoors is very important for my learning!)
