    Hey all. We have an ipod touch...I think it's a 3rd gen...it was purchased new in December...there's a text file that was typed directly into the touch and we want to transfer it to the computer. Can anyone provide a simple, noob-proof method to do this?
    When it's connected to the pc I looked in My Computer and found the device but when I opened it all I saw were pictures that we took with it.
    I'd really appreciate some help.

    Is it written in the Note application? You could email it to yourself and then check the email on your PC and save it to your hard-drive.

    Problem is we never figured out how to set up wifi so we can't email. Is there a way to do a direct transfer?

    Or you can screenshot it, and plug the ipod into computer and transfer the pic to your computer. HOLD HOME BUTTON AND POWER BUTTON TO SCREENSHOT. Screenshots are saved under pictures.
    I was thinking if your ipod was jailbroken you could of ssh the file out. Not sure though :/

    tradenick then do it my way. You can take as many screenshots as you desire

    How are you connected to the internet now? Ethernet cable?

    I am on a different laptop that is connected via verizon. I think the screen shot idea is going to work.
    The laptop that is connected to the touch is on a different laptop...there's no wifi here.

    You don't need Wifi to set up an Ad-hoc network; just a connection.

    I don't know what that means, I just want to transfer this text from the touch to the laptop it's connected to. We're trying to take screenshots but there's a lot of text...so far we have about 30 screenshots. I suspect this method may be too cumbersome and inefficient but we're continuing to try.
