The 'drive is offline' message prevents me from being able to access it at 
all. I've found though, if I unplug it and plug it back in, that sd0 (the 
external FW enclosure) hangs.

At one point I was able to access it.. I don't know what I did 
differently, but I could at least list files in /mnt/sd1. At this point 
though, sd0 was hung so I rebooted. Then the iPod failed to attach. Back 
to square one :/

I'll remember the 'eject sd1' tip for the future, thanks!
