I have an iPod. Ubuntu recognises it and rhythmbox can handle the music
collection on it; even gtkpod does it. ut, they store the files in a
peculiar manner (names are mangled).

So, installed rockbox on it. Now, my ipod can also play ogg files and a
couple of more formats :-)

I am also using it to move around large amount of data around as it is
really a big fat usb drive.

HTH,

If you are what you eat, I guess that makes me a cheese danish.
