    Is there any way to use the iPod Touch as a flash drive? What I am looking to do is to be able to load files on to my iPod from my home Mac, and then be able to access them on a PC at school. Is there any way to do this, jailbreak or not, because it would be extremely useful for me. I have a jailbroken 1.1.4 wih software upgrade. Thanks!!

    Considering you can get a 2GB flash drive for well under $20 these days...might just be better to get the right tool for the job.

    There are ways, SSH & whatnot, but it isn't great.

    Theoretically, you could use SSH to do it, however your school would need Wifi, and the admins might think your trying to hack them if they catch you with SSH stuff with you.

    Another option would be iPhoneBrowser, however, I'm not sure of the compatability with iPod Touches, and again you might not be able to install stuff on your school computers.

    Like someone said above me, flash drives are mighty cheap these days... I'd rather pay 20 bucks then get suspended from school computer use for installing stuff...

    iPhoneBrowser works perfect with the touch, if you ziphoned u need to apply a patch from installer first before you can have full access to it
