    Okay i have noticed people using Cute FTP pro and WinSCP to connect to there iPods Why not use iPhoneBrowser 1.5.2.0? its the same thing and you don't need WiFi or open ssh to connect to it. also i think it looks and works better the Total commander too.

    Well people don't use those because many people don't know about it. In addition, using SSH is kind of cooler, seeing as you can access something over wi-fi. CuteFTP Pro and WinSCP came out first and that's what people have been using.

    Plus, iPhone Browser is windows only. there is a large portion of Mac and OS X86 people here.

    Nevermind. I had never heard of iPhone drive. lol

    I prefer WinSCP, as it looks, feels, and functions exactly like an FTP client (because it is using SFTP). I also like the easability of running putty within WinSCP itself.

    Plus, I really like the way t's set up. People just prefer different things.

    Because I trust FTP clients much more than something designed to work like an FTP client. The former is something that a network admin would use, therefore it must be good.
