Please bear in mind that the databases of songs, movies etc. are

They might be proprietary but most, if not all, of the data seems to
be stored within SQLite databases.

If you jailbreak the device you can install SSH service (meaning you
can use SCP file transfer.. I think) and also install AppleTalk for
real network file sharing.

If it is an ipod, none of this is necessary. What you describe applies
to the ipod Touch and iPhone. The ipods do not need to be jailbroken to
work with Linux. They simply need to be formatted with a FAT
filesystem to be readable on linux. Gustav.

That's correct the ones before the touch and maybe the newer mini ones
should work with the iPod programs.

I just plugged in an ipod nano (think it's gen 5(rectangle)) and it
up as a drive, music, video, etc is all accessable.

On the other hand, the Ipod Touch when plugged in shows up as a camera
but I can get the pictures off the unit, that's about it.

I have no software installed to access the ipod as I have a Sansa.
