so I was bored tonight and was messing around in the terminal and discovered that I could access all of my iPod's music. I copied a few songs to make sure that they worked, (and of course they did) and thought "wouldn't that be cool if finder could do that?" So I made an applescript to do just that with the fowloing script: tell application "Finder" to quit set OnOff to do shell script "defaults read com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles" if OnOff = "NO" or OnOff = "OFF" then set OnOff to "ON" else set OnOff to "OFF" end if do shell script "defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles " & OnOff tell application "Finder" to launch Finder can now see hidden files, then locate the /Volumes/ipod name/iPod_control/Music and whala!!! you can now do some cool things.... for all those people whose computer died and they had music on their ipod, they can now access it. For legal issues do not use this for transferring songs that are not yours I will post screen shots Edit: Does anyone now how to make things un-hidden so I can alway view my ipod music so I can turn off the view hidden files (gets annoying)???
