Just so very recently, someone said:

I get that too with the 30GB iPod I just bought. I think there's an issue
preventing new iPods from working with FreeBSD. I even formatted mine
for windows since it's easier to read vfat rather than HFS. Still nothing.
If you get your nano workin please let me know :)
