Default Ipod touch

So Im trying to mount my Ipod in FreeBSD its a touch Im not sure if that matters. msdos is supported in my kernel I plu my ipod in the and the dmesg is.
uhid0: <Apple Inc. iPod, class 0/0, rev 2.00/0.01, addr 3> on uhub1
so then I try to mount it
BSD# mount -t msdos /dev/uhid0 /mnt/ipod
mount: Using "-t msdosfs", since "-t msdos" is deprecated.
mount_msdosfs: /dev/uhid0: : Block device required
any ideas? Thanks

1st are you sure it is formated with a FAT file and not the Apple file system.
If it is it shoudl also produce a /dev/da# device as it should mount as SCSI disk - you may need to adjust you kernel or kldload the needed drivers.

Then you should be able to mount it using the command

Code:
mount -t msdosfs <device name> <mount point>

Yea its formated with FAT my thinking is I have never been able to use the touch as an external hard drive like I did with my mini so I'm wondering if its just something with the touch

It's attaching as a USB human interface device, it's not a mountable device.. perhaps it's one of those "attach & reattach" devices, where a certain mode enables the mass storage abilities.

Or, perhaps uhid0 attached accidentally, bug?

From what I read you can't put the touch into disc mode without hacking it

I can only find "work arounds" and ""SSHFS" solutions, neither sound desirable..

2 commercial programs exist, 1 is for Mac, and the other is for Windows/Mac.

http://www.wideanglesoftware.com/touchcopy/
http://www.ecamm.com/mac/megaphone/

Both programs manage to "prod" the Apple ITouch/Iphone into disk mode, but they don't document the method.

I suppose if someone used a USB bus sniffer they could determine what extra magic is required to enable the feature, but I don't own a Windows system or a Mac.

Nothing more I can do.. my sincere apologies.
