    You will need a program to do this. The name of the program is called SftpDrive. You can download the trial version here or go to the home page here (THIS PROGRAM IS ONLY FOR WINDOWS) If you want the full version then PM or IM me. Install the program.

    On your iPod/Phone you need you will need OpenSSH or an application like it.

    Now execute SftpDrive. You can name the drive name what ever you want. Enter your iPod's/Phone's ip address into the server field. Leave the port at 22. Type in root for username and type alpine (unless you changed it, then enter that in) into the password. Choose which drive letter you want it to be.Then press connect. YOUR DONE!!

    Now, to access it just go into My Computer, and find the drive that you added and you are in your iPod/Phone.

    With this you may need to add links in your root folder that go to / for easier access.
    With this program there is no need to click on connect every time you want to access your iPod/Phone. It will automatically connect every time it comes within range. Hope this helps. Any questions, feel free to PM or IM me.

    EDIT-could someone fix the title to mount an ipod... remove add and change a to an?

    Question:

    Why would you want to mount your iPod/iPhone to your pc as a Virtual Drive? Just wondering like.

    This works great! Now I can fool my friends into thinking I have disk mode for my touch. Rep+.

    Still don't see much point. WinSCP is pretty quick for me. No need for this. Nice idea if you want to do it like this though.

    the point is that this is automatic and connects right away instead of you having to reconnect if you go out of range or anything

    I'm bored. I might actually try this. So basically, I follow your steps and I'll always have my iPod connected to my PC instead of connecting and re-connecting when I close down WinSCP?
