Yes you can with the iPhone and it's called iPhoneDrive that will allow for disk mode. So it's only a matter of time for something similar with the Touch.Simple answer: NO
This has been one of those "flaws" that the iPod touch has. But hey, can the iPhone be used as a Disk Drive? I think not!
in windows it is. Explorer can browse an FTP site almost exactly as it can browse a disk drive. And there are programs like webdrive that allow you to actually mount an FTP server AS a disk drive (there's a free one from IBM or Novell that doesn't has as many options but may work just as well in this case).ftp access is not disk mode.. it's just a weak workaround and barely better than nothing.
iPhoneDrive works with the Touch as well. it's only OS X compatible though
Wireless is indeed the biggest obstacle since it means you can't access it from any computer you want which pretty much defeats the purpose.in windows it is. Explorer can browse an FTP site almost exactly as it can browse a disk drive. And there are programs like webdrive that allow you to actually mount an FTP server AS a disk drive (there's a free one from IBM or Novell that doesn't has as many options but may work just as well in this case).
And on a Mac you can (I'm assuming) use Fuse or CurlFTPFS to mount an FTP as a drive (they're both linux apps, one probably works for a mac)
And barely better than nothing? What, are you planning on formatting your iPod from windows? The desire for disk access on an iPod = the desire to use it as a flash drive. FTP gives you this just as well as anything else, the ONLY restriction (given it's a somewhat annoying one) is that you need wireless to use it. If that's not a problem (it's not for me), then FTP is the same as "real" disk access.
Looks alright, if you ignore the 369 1-star ratings...Hey guys, I found this app, I am gonna try it right now http://itunes.apple.com/mx/app/wifi-hd-free-wireless-hard/id311170976?mt=8
This doesn't make sense, the touch (and maybe the shuffle, I don't know as I've never owned one) is the only iPod that doesn't support this function. For the nano and classic there is a checkbox on the device's summary page in iTunes that allows you to use it as an external drive - it still functions perfectly as an iPod, syncs with iTunes, etc, but just allows it to appear on your desktop/in your computers list of connected devices and lets you drag and drop files to it as if it were any old portable drive. Surely Apple wouldn't include that if they didn't want people using iPods as a disk drive?OS X doesn't recognize it as a drive, it recognizes it as an iPod. And Apple doesn't want people using iPods as a disk drive.
