    is there such a thing as an SD or Micro SD Reader/writer that can be plugged into the touch so I can transfer pictures or what not on the fly, instead of syncing it to my pc. (ie if I take a pic with my cell, pull my micro sd card out of my cell, stick it in this reader, and dump it to my touch)

    Thx

    Well i think it's quite clear why there isn't a SD reader for the iPod touch.
    The ipod is playing it's media not like normal media players that reads the mp3/whatever files from the root folder, it uses the damn iTunes encryption (the wierd letters song names). how would the iPod read from an SD card, which surely doesn't use the itunes encryption?..

    Digital Concepts/Sakar made the iAlbum, which was compatible with the iPod with color, iPod with Video and iPod Nano. It was an adapter that plugged into the dock connector and then you could insert SD cards and copy them over to the iPod. But it could only accomodate smallish SD cards, like 256mb - maybe 512 mb.

    You can google and find out more. They cost about $35.

    The iWay will let you copy pictures ONTO your iPod, but apparently not OFF of the iPod, nor will it let you copy other file types (music, movies, etc)

    I don't care so much about copying data off the iPod, but is there a way to copy Music & movies from an SD card onto your iPod?

    Thanks.

    This is completely possible with the new 3.0 API's.

    Someone would have to create a device that could read the specified memory card, then someone would have to write an application that can work with that hardware, possibly letting you copy those files within the application... allowing you to have an extra amount of storage for the iPod.

    I agree with the post above me. One side of the "product" it is the Dock Connector, and at the other end is a hole for the Micro SD card or something.

    This is an old chain and perhaps this has been discussed elsewhere since, but what about using griffin technology's dock-sd card reader?

    http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/simplifi#

    I'd like to travel and not have to download pictures to a computer before uploading them to my itouch. It seems this dock station may be what I need. Agreed?

    Please let me know if you are aware of any other gadgets that would also easily get pictures from sd/cf cards to the itouch. Thanks in advance!


    From the griffen website:
    "Charge/Sync dock, media card reader, and USB hub
