KVM only supports emulated USB 1.1 at the moment, all USB devices
requiring USB 2.0 doesn't work (which includes all iPhones and newer
iPods AFAIK). qemu-kvm 0.14 which will be out soon, has received some
USB 2.0 patches, but still no initial 2.0 support. Don't expect
emulated USB 2.0 support in KVM in CentOS anytime soon.

If you have a host with VT-d support, you can try to passthrough one
of the USB controllers on your motherboard to a guest - or to add a
PCI/PCIe USB card to the host and dedicate it to a guest. I haven't
had any luck with ~4-5 different USB controllers/cards, so don't put
your expectations too high.
