    I have an old Rio mp3 player (harddrive based) and I can connect the USB cord and drag files into the directory and use it like a USB flash drive. Can this be done with the itouch? If so how do you do this. I currently have itunes set to open once the USB is connected to the ipod..

    You need to jailbreak it to enable SSH access and in turn to be able to use SFTP by using something like WinSCP
