    Does anyone know if we are close to getting an app/mod to enable disk mode directly on the Touch?

    I know there are programs for the Mac/PC like iPhoneDrive etc that let you copy to and from the iPod touch, but this means having to have that software installed on each machine you want to copy to/from.

    What we really need is the application/mod installed on the ipod itself that would mount the ipot as a drive without external software. If this could be done then my touch would be perfect (nearly)

    This has already been discussed numerous times. The main problem (for Windows anyway) is that any such program is going to require a filesystem translation to allow Windows to read the Touch's VFS and make it think it is an NTFS volume. The program will, in effect, be emulating the BSD filesystem. It can be done, it's just not as easy as people seem to think.
