Now i am able to open ipod as capture device.
The problem was ipod was been shown as the mass storage device (/dev/sda1).   //snd_pcm_open was failing
I reconfigured my ipod so that is is being showed as usbaudio class device.            // Works fine now

Thanks for your inputs,

In that case, yes.

Does the device show up in /proc/asound/cards?
