You data must be in /dev/daX is it written at
"The entire disk of your iPod will be accessible as /dev/daX, where X
is a number assigned to this new device upon plugging it. The
GEOM_APPLE module will further split the disk into /dev/daXs1, a
partition map partition (yes, it's self-contained); /dev/daXs2, a
firmware partition; and /dev/daXs3, an HFS Plus volume partition.
Obviously, you should mount the latter."
