That makes sense, although you used the word trampled - in the past when 
using FC4 I had no problems mounting my ipod. Never blew the FS up...

Now running FC5 I did blow the FS up when forcing it to mount in RW 
mode, the only option I had was to turn the journaling off using a MAC.

Now it is all good!
