Welcome to AskUbuntu! What doesn't display it? Windows? Ubuntu? You might want to add more information so people can help you out more easily. – Oyibo Jan 5 '13 at 8:16
After you connected your iPod open a terminal and enter dmesg? Please the last 5--10 lines of output to your question. – qbi Mar 5 '13 at 14:02

Ubuntu doesn't came with Apple devices support by default. To see your iPod, you must have ifuse installed. To install it, run:

sudo apt-get install ifuse

After that, replug your iPod, it should appear in nautilus
