I plugged mine in to charge and checked and it listed all the music I have on my Ipod. Did they change this?

The 360 sees it as an external drive when it's connected by wired connection.

Weird. What kind of Ipod do you guys have? Mine is a Nano.

Those are limited to just 4GB right? That could be a formatting thing, if the larger drives aren't done in FAT32 they won't show up in the 360, just like any other external device.

No. Mine holds 8GB. It is a second or third generation Nano (its the gen before the camera gen).

To get to the music, I hit the guide button, scroll over to "Media", scroll down to "Select Music", select "Ipod" (or whatever you named it in iTunes. Mine is [My Name]'s Ipod), and go from there to album, or artist, etc.

I think the Xbox doesn't pick up music from iPhones and iPod touches.

The touches have a different memory than the rest so you can't get music off it, I has to be something other than a touch or phone.

Nano 7th gen 16GB. I know I used a non apple/sony mp3 player a few years back, that worked fine via 360.
