Good morning Jo.

Nope, I didn't have to. Just plugged in and iPod got detected. I've took a
look on the filesystem and it's a FAT32.

Have you formatted your iPod mini on MacOS maybe, or was the HFS+ Filesystem
located on the iPod since the beginning? Because if your linux kernel doesn't
support HFS+ read/write you will encounter such problems.

Maybe this can help you:

Or just reformat your iPod mini with FAT32 and everything should be fine. :)
