    Right now you can't use your iPod touch as a hard drive. The best solution I can think of off the top of my head is to e-mail these files to yourself. You can then use the Mail app on your iPod to download and view them.

    You will have to just buy a flash drive for like $10.

    They nixed Disk Mode (USB Mass Storage) on the Touch and iPhone. But, hey, you can pay $99/year to mail it to yourself! What a deal :p

    File Magnet

    If you have a Mac computer, you can use File Magnet to transfer (and view) files on your Touch. You can get it at the iTunes app store for $5. After that you go to the company's website and download an "uploader" app for free. Then you just drag the files you want to the uploader, which transfers the files wirelessly to the iPod. Easy to use and works great for me.

    This app (plus Exchange email support on the Touch) actually allowed me to get rid of my Pocket PC organizer at work. I now can use my Touch for everything for work and home.

    FileMagnet is great, the updated version supports landscape viewing of files, iWork documents, Office documents.

    Only thing they need is to either beef up document viewing support so that you can search pdf files (it's a pain having to swipe through 50+ pages) and also view chapters in the pdf document. A simple flip-over effect would be fine for chapters and maybe a search bar in the top of the page like in the contacts app.

    Apple would probably need to come to the party on that and do it system-wide so that it can further compete in the enterprise market where guys are using their PDAs as complete file managers.

    Take a look at Datacase from Veiosoft.com

    http://www.veiosoft.com/

    This will probably do exactly what you're after. It's a very nice disk util for the iTouch or iPhone and doesn't need any software installed on he PC, Mac, or Linux box which is a bonus



    Cheers

    Only problem with DiskAid is you need to install it on each computer you want to copy files to / from. Like if you go to a friend's house and want to transfer files to or from his computer to the Touch, you'll need to install DiskAid on his computer.

    And I found out the other day it needs iTunes installed to work -- I was trying to install it on a computer at work that didn't have iTunes, and it said it needed iTunes. Since I didn't have permission to install iTunes on that machine, I couldn't use DiskAid. :(
