Well, in teory it depends on file system. You can try /usr/ports/emulators/hfsutils
I dont think it will work with your hfs+

I failed to mount dmg/img files with it (dunno how it works with real devices).

There were hfs+ patches for older FreeBSD kernel, but it is now obsolete because lack of interest.

Linux, on other hand does support hfs+ out of box (from kernel hfsplus module).

There is free HFSExplorer, maybe it will run via wine?

You don't, this would be much too simple and actually allow you some degree of control over your device (*gasp*).
You will have to use the Apple iTunes software.

I don't own an ipod, or any mp3 player for that matter.. but the following leads me to believe "some" models are supported.

http://www.freshports.org/search.php...tch&query=ipod

But ya, from what I hear.. the older (non-touch) ipods appear as mass storage devices.. but the media is stored on them in a proprietary database style format.

I just wanted to transfer files of my I pod classic. Dont want to manage my music from freeBSD. I know I tunes would be best to manage music. Isn't my I pod equivalent to usb mass storage device?

As for the main question, HFS/HFS+ media.. another port mentioned on freshports is called, you guessed it, hfs.

emulators/hfs

Hope that helps.

Edit; this port might be for HFS only, not the newer Unix-ready HFS+

Technically it is, but the way the music is stored prevents you from ever actually being able to get files off of it.

For iPod access, especially with the older ones, you can try the following ports:

audio/gnupod Set of Perl scripts for using an Apple iPod
audio/gtkpod GUI for Apple iPods using GTK2
audio/libgpod A library for direct access of iPod's contents
misc/gopod Utility to cap/uncap an iPod
misc/gtk-gopod GTK Utility to cap/uncap an iPod
misc/shuffle-db An iPod shuffle database builder
sysutils/fusefs-pod FUSE-based filesystem for iPod

gtkpod would probably be the nicer/easier of the bunch.
