    Is there an app (jailbroken or otherwise) that lets you transfer files between your computer and your ipod touch over wifi without having to install something on the computer?
    I am using filemagic and checked out a few others but they all seem to require you to install a separate application on the computer.
    In other words, is there something that integrates to the native windows file explorer, so that for example an ipod would show up as a usb drive connected to the computer. Wi-fi sync is similar but it works only for itunes syncing. I want something that transfers files directly.
    Thanks a lot.

    iFile!

    enable WIFI web server in iFile (tap the WIFI icon from tab bar) n open ur browser on ur computer, type the IP address of ur iPod with Port #, u can check that in iFile when u enable web server. it enables u to upload files (1 at a time) to ur iPod or download them to ur computer. i use it when i'm on my fren's PCs which don't have iTunes installed!

    I didn't know iFile could do that.
    The only problem is that it doesn't work on windows explorer.
    I can connect to the ipod using firefox but entering the same address does not work on windows explorer.
    Am I doing something wrong? Maybe ipod has to be on the same windows home network? Does anyone know how to add ipod to windows network?

    it's a web server u need ur internet browser LOL. it won't work on windows explorer. i use it on Chrome or Firefox. n yes it is on local network. also it will work on Internet Explorer which PCs have by default. also if u r using hostname instead of IP address, it's case sensitive!

    Thank you.
    So I guess no simple drag and drop copying.
    It's either using other wifi file transfer apps + PC client or iFile with web browser.
    Either way no getting around having to run an extra program.
    Thanks anyway. I learned something new.

    iFile is pretty handy. u can files transfer between iDevices using it's bluetooth file transfer. it's pretty useful. for something like drag n drop, u'll need root access to ur device only SSH can give u or maybe some apps from appstore. i only use iFile so that's all i know right now!

    WinSCP requires another install, but since it's an SSH client everything it drag and drop over Wifi
