I wish I knew how you got there.  I plug in my iphone  and all that happens is 
that it shows up in dmesg; otherwise, nada.  I can sort of mount it with ifuse 
, but can't really do anything with it.  It doesn't show up in Amarok.  All 
I've seen with Google are statements about how it "just works" with Lucid.  I 
don't have Windows, so because it doesn't work with Lucid, it just doesn't 
work at all.
