    Ok heres the deal, I re-installed my OSX and used my ipod as a hard drive for my music, docs etc. But for the photos they are under the "photo" section of the ipod rather than just having it in the hard drive to pull off when I want to. I hope this makes sense. I know for the music there are programs you can pull your music to another computer ie xpod or something like that. Is there something like this for photos? How can I get my photos onto my computer?

    open Terminal and enter the following: defaults write AppleShowAllFiles TRUE

    then enter: killall Finder

    now you'll be able to see all the hidden files on your comp. Navigate to your ipod and just double-click the files until you find all your photos.

    when you're done, enter the following into Terminal: defaults write AppleShowAllFiles FALSE

    then: killall Finder

    (and don't get trigger-happy and go around deleting any of the other files that were previously invisible)
