I just bought my first mac a couple weeks ago, and an iPod last weekend. So far I love them both. One of the first things I did with my iPod is write a quick sync program to read information from my yahoo account (addresses, calendar info, etc) and format them for my ipod. I ran into one problem, however.. I can't figure out a generic way to reference my ipod. The mount point is named after the name of the ipod.

If I can't find anything, I'm going to prompt the user on first use ("What is your iPod's name?"). What I would really like is for the program to be smart enough to detect the attached ipod on it's own. I don't mind if the solution is mac-specific. If anyone has any ideas, or can point me in a good direction, please post a comment below, or write me.
