Can you check

	# fdisk da1

to see if you're accessing the correct partition? In any
case, /dev/da1s1 should be fine. 

You can try as well:

	# mount_msdosfs -o ro /dev/da1s1 /ipod
	# mount_msdosfs -o ro /dev/da1 /ipod

Which files are created in /dev?

	# ll /dev/da1*

I don't own an iPod, but I may assume that it shows itself to
the system as a regular direct access storage device (da) and
not as a generic device (ugen).
