Discussion in 'iPod touch' started by alexzander0, Jul 29, 2008.
Whenever I plug it in my comp says it's a camera. What's up with that?!
its because of the images you save from the web, or the screen shots you take
It;'s a 'feature' to give you easier access to those images you've saved while on the go.
Jeez. They could have told us that!
why???? i like the people to discover the hidden feature on there divices.!! it is like playing where is waldo in america.
I don't want to play "Where's waldo with my iPod!!! =(
It's kind of like why I don't use chopsticks at asian restaurants.
I'd rather eat than play operation. =)
iPod uses one of USB universal drivers by identification as camera, so it don't need special drivers to download pics.
@everyone who answered this guys question
Well, that's odd. Because my computer recognized my iPod as a camera as soon as i plugged it into a computer with 1.1.3 F/w. I don't even have pictures in my photos app and my computer still recongnizes it as a camera. So i think somehow, you're wrong.
what he said
The iPod touch is being recognized as a camera, similar to a flash card, because it provides an effective way to retrieve any saved pictures/screenshots you have on your iPod touch, rather than having to SSH into the ~/Media/DCIM/999APPLE.
Similar to what others have said. Your pc recognises your ipod as a camera because of the images or the image access your ipod has, it cannot recognise your ipod touch as a external drive because apple has tries very hard to block that in attempt to users changing the files.
Edit: Installing the correct drivers fixes this.
