I am using Fedora 19 GNOME version.

After I plugin my iPod to the USB, it is not listed in my filesystem.

The output of the lsusb command is:

the output of fdisk -l is:

So, sdb is my iPod.

The output of mount -t hfsplus /dev/sdb /media/ipod/ is:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error

       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail or so.

Then I tried checking the logfile dmesg | tail -30. The output was:

I also have gtpod and banshee installed. How do I get the iPod configured and running?

Please edit your question and copy-paste the output of fdisk -l and dmesg, this time without rewrapping the lines. Use code formatting (Ctrl+K or the {} button), not blockquote formatting which destroys the line breaks and makes the information unreadable. –  Gilles Aug 25 '13 at 19:23
    
The line breaks are still missing. You can't edit from what you have: using the blockquote formatting tool removed the line breaks that are necessary to make sense of this mess. –  Gilles Aug 26 '13 at 7:23
