    Hi, i've been trying to figure out if you can use an ipod touch as a portable hard drive, like to transfer files from one computer to another. I can't seem to find any info, and information would be appreciated, thank you very much

    I cant believe this isnt possible yet. After all the things you can do with an ipod touch this seems like some of the simplest.

    I mean you can even transfer whatever you want to the ipod via winSCP, but that's wireless so it takes a long time. But sh*t, it just doesnt sound like something thats so difficult to do

    um lol you can...


    Just jailbreak your ipod and follow these steps

    1. install open ssh

    2. ssh into your ipod using winSCP (search for a guide on this website) and navigate over to /var/root and make a new folder called Downloads

    3. Put all your files in and then go to the other computer and install winSCP and do the same thing but this time drag the files out

    4. Hope this helps

    If it does rep is appreciated (click the scale under my avatar

    Your wrong thats ipod only not itouch
