    One of my friends recently lost her harddrive, but had some of her favorite pictures backed up on her Ipod. I have tried putting them on my Mac from Senuti or Pod View, but they are not showing up in the file lists. Any suggestions?

    Does music show up ? I wouldn't think you could retrieve anything from a Windows iPod.

    Yeah, music does show up. I was somewhat surprised that it did, but I just can't figure out why music will show up when the pictures won't.

    this works!

    I have a retired friend that had the same issue as you (PC crashed, pictures still on iPod) and we have been trying to solve this for months! Because he had a PC the Apple store people gave vague answers. After many searches within the Apple website I did a google search, came up with your question and this apple discussion:

    http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=5137675

    It had a listing of Mac and PC options to transfer files from the iPod back to the computer (see below).

    The following are the options for PC:
    iPodRip Mac & Windows
    YamiPod Mac & Windows
    Music Rescue Mac & Windows
    iPodCopy Mac & Windows

    I randomly chose iPodCopy Mac & Windows and when you click the link it takes you here:

    I loaded the program and it read the picture files and with minimal setup, it transfered the pictures to the PC. :)

    Hope this works as well for you as it did for me.
