"Actually iPods are USB mass storage devices. I've used them as boot drives for Macs"

The iPad3 certainly does not appear as a USB mass storage device. I won't bother to check my iPod becuase it hasn't changed to support that either.

What seems far more likely, given your report, is that Apple has a driver for iOS to make them look like a drive - that's not the same as adhering to the USB Mass Storage device peripheral standard else the host OS platform wouldn't matter.
