I don't own an IPod, but according to

For example, the Ipod does not support ogg playback so just because you have Rockbox installed you still won't get ogg playback. But, if you have an Iriver, that does support ogg, then Rockbox will playback ogg files. I think this is correct, but if I am wrong please someone correct me.
