    I was wondering if it is possible to ssh songs into your phone to play in the ipod, if it is possible what folder are the music files kept in?

    Unfortunately no, because the files aren't kept on your iPhone as MP3 files to my knowledge.

    So all those files have strange names how does one put a song file from itunes in that folder and have it appear in the the ipod app? When i added a song file named wildcat.mp3 it didnt appear in the app.

    I found the files they are Mp3 and i uploaded one to my Mac and opened it in itunes and it worked fine... However going backwards uploading to the phone i couldnt find the file on my phone in the ipod.

    iTunes creates a database file that has all the files indexed for the iPod. You would need to add the new file to the database for it to show up in the iPod app.

    I have no idea if that's possible or how to do it.

    You can ssh it in and use dtunes, AVplayer or one of the other JB media players to play it, but not through the iPod app.

    if it's an m4a or an mp3 on the computer, it's the same when it's transfered to the iPhone, however, just placing mp3s in the folder won't make them show up in the
