You have an old build of rhythmbox installed into the /usr/local prefix. You should remove it from there. The following commands should help with that: rm /usr/local/bin/rhythmbox* rm /usr/local/lib/librhythmbox* rm -rf /usr/local/lib/rhythmbox rm -rf /usr/local/share/rhythmbox rm /usr/local/share/applications/rhythmbox* rm ...

Apparently Apple changed the FS type in the more recent iPods, e.g. Nano 7G, so that it is not compatible with gtkpod which is the engine for many of the Linux based players. The link below outlines a workaround to the issue. Note though that it involves tweaking the Nano's FS. http://sourceforge.net/p/gtkpod/mailman/message/30329260/
