    Whenever i plug my ipod touch 16gb into my computer, it bleeps and starts charging, and itunes can recognize it and sync it and all that. But my pc doesn't. In my computer there are no removable disk drives or anything. THis prevents me from using total commander, of iphonepc suite, which i really want to do 2 get psx roms and stuff.

    I suspect it is some driver issue ?

    Any Idea how to make windows see it ?
    Anyhelp is appreciated ...

    Thank You

    You need to Jailbreak with the software of your choice, then you can access the file system by ssh or use Total Commander with the Tpot plugin. After Jailbreak you need to install BSD subsystem and openSSH, there are plenty guides on the best Jailbreak methods if you hunt through this forum.

    I have jailbroke it. It was fluky. I broke it with ZiPhone 3.0 and firmware 1.1.4, which is a dodgy jailbreak since i got a 16gb. But it worked, but my pc just cannot detect it ... except for itunes

    Ty for your contribution

    Apple removed the feature allowing you to see it in My Computer (can no longer be used as a removable disk).

    It sucks, but thats the way it is...

    Just use WinSCP to browse your iPod's filesystem.

    No longer dodgy, that was before 2.6...

    No they didn't, its just that it cant be read easily on both platforms so they decided to do without. Also, you cant install apps this way...

    There is NO disk mode for iPod Touch. I manually manage my songs, and I still can't see it in "My Computer".

    Here, this is from my iPod Touch:

    And THIS is from my 1st Gen iPod Nano:

    Notice how the Nano has disk mode, and the iPod Touch does not even have that option.

    Use WinSCP or similar program and SSH into it. You CAN install programs with it as well.
    Hope this cleared things up.
