    You cannot take video files off of the touch, it does not have a disk mode. I think you can do it if you SSH into your touch, but I do not know the location of the files.

    There is no easy way to do this. If you have too much time and too much disk space at hand, you can downlad (via SSH/SFTP) the folders (I currently have 46, numbers and mileages may very) from /private/var/root/Media/iTunes_Control/Music/ and go through each of them. YES, I know it says Music, but your videos are actually in there too. Filenames are seemingly random 4 hex characters in upper case, plus file extension... Good luck.

    You can't, you have to put it on a USB or something.
