    How about an app that once you go into the computer recognized it as a flashdrive/jumprive, and you could store files and such on it?

    i think it would be very useful for school and such, your thoughts?

    My Thought? Everyone wants to use their iTouch as a disk drive when they can, however apple has restricted such access with the iTouch and iPhone for some reason. You are not able to do it the normal way via iTunes nor can you use it on the Xbox 360. I am not aware of the exact reason why it doesn't work.

    All I'm trying to say is - everyone wants this, whether or not a simple app can bring this to the iTouch I do not know - apple may have to release a new firmware update that enables disk use.

    i think theres 1 way havent tried it im just thinking outloud here. theres this program called total commander or something(theres a tutorial around the forums about it somewhere). you can import all your music from your itouch to your itunes this way. so if you place files in a folder such as the one you use for the terminal stoaring (when you create new files). then you can transfer items. im not too sure if this works ive only tried exporting things out of the itouch but not importing. so i'll try it when i get home and poste results
    (bad part is that the pc will need to have total commander installed at all times and i dont really like caring my itouch cable with me at all times =( either so yeah)

    Total Commander you have to installer and install an additional plugin, so it's not ideal for school. Also there's a program called iPhone PC Suite which doesn't require you to install anything onto your computer and it allows you to browse your iPhone/iPod, however even that you need on the computer in order to gain access. What this guy wants is genuine disk access, something that no app has provided yet

    Total commander works but as you said you need it installed on the pc which would not be practical for use on another computer.

    If it even is possible to instal Total Commander on a school computer.

    You would need to make sure no one finds out about it.

    Try to get the master password

    My schools master password was

    USER NAME:Teacher

    PASS:Empathy

    plug-n-play flash drives are usually a fat32 filesystem. iTouch uses HFS I believe. That's why you see nothing when you plug it in.

    Yes, the iPod Touch and iPhone are HFS formatted. They show up as drives on Macs with AFP installed.
