Technically this iPod is not supported, and i did a ton of hunting aound on google before i found the following post http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1611473&page=4
The fix is simple, just download the zip file, and run the installer which copies the libraries over. I have libhashab_mod_14-04-13.tar.gz mirrored so you don’t need a login on the ubuntu site.
tar zvxf libhashab_mod_14-04-13.tar.gz
sudo ./install_64bit.sh # or sudo ./install_32bit.sh if you are 32bit
Then you just need to open your favourite media application, I found it worked nicely with Banshee, but clementine still had an error (possibly cached or other).
