    is there a free program out there that can import photo's from a 5g iPod in their albums? so that I can put them back into my iPhoto library. The reason why don't want to spend any money is because I have my iphoto library backed up before my EHD crashed, so I could just import it from the disc but I would need to put them back in albums.
    thanks

    you can try to get them of by displaying hidden files
    ill post the command:
    defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
    then restart finder
    and then navigate through the ipod till you find all the photos in their albums
    i havnt tried it before but it works with the music
    to rehide the files type the command in again replacing TRUE with FALSE
    and then restart finder

    4 files in here "F1019_1.ithmb", "F1019_1.ithmb", "F1019_3.ithmb" and "F1019_4.ithmb"

    Hmm, intresting. normally (even with viewing hidden files) there are full res copies of my photos (I selected coppy full res pictures in iTunes prefs). but now all I get are the 3 files
