I don't have an ipod, but what usually happens is that when any external 
storage device is plugged in you get a popup from the notifier widget in your 
system tray - it only stays there for a few seconds, but you can click on the 
widget to get it back.  There you will see a link to Open with Dolphin.  This 
performs the mount.  I would think that the apps you talk about would require 
it to be mounted.

There are two ways of dealing with the umount - you can either select the ipod 
in the Places panel of dolphin, and right-click on it for Safely Remove, or 
you can use the notifier again.  In the notifier, if you hover over the ipod 
entry you will see an eject symbol at the right-hand side.  Click on that.  
Both methods work the same way.
