    when i plug in my ipod to my computer
    it turns into a flash drive.
    it doesnt do it all the time.
    when i had the 1.1.4 jailbreak it did the same thing.
    this is what it looks like.
    it says i have an iphone?

    Heh, that's pretty cool. That saves you the task of having to SSH into your iPhone. ^^

    doesnt that thing comes with itunes? I had it since the first day and thought that it's pretty usual..?
    And, yes - it's not full filesystem access only the Media folder.
    Also it's not associated with a Drive-Letter so you the possibilities are very limited.

    when itunes tell you to restore just
    alt ctl delete open the windows manager and close itunes!
    and then unplug your ipod and then open itunes again and there you
    go your ipod is recognized. that happened to me before!
    i kept restoring but then i just did the alt ctl delete and it doesnt happen anymore.
