Yes, the ipod etc don't use the "USB mass storage" option, hence it has to be "synced", with other forms like MTP or other.
So nothing can be seen via the cocktail audio or other players unless it supports the ipod protocol.
I am not sure how apple(i -devices) configures their kits, perhaps there is an option on the ipod or you could just make the 'ITUNES library' shareable so the X10 can then play all the music rather than just what you have on your ipod.
I had a portable player that enabled me to switch from MTP to PTP/USB et..type this way i could do whatever i wanted.
Hope this gives you an idea.
