    Hello Forum,

    Can I take pictures from a mac that is not the one used with my itunes account and put them on my itouch?

    Sure, transfer them to your Mac associated with the Touch, and put them on. If you don't have that mac, try drag-and-dropping them onto your touch. If that doesn't work, I don't know. Generally, if you can't do something simply on a mac, you can't do it at all.

    Sorry. What I am attempting to say is that I will not be around my ipod touch associated mac because I will be away. Therefore, if my in-laws take pictures and download them on thier mac, can I plug my itouch into thier mac and get the pictures.

    I don't have one yet, so I can't try it. You *probably* could, but you probably wouldn't be able to look at them on the touch, 'cause you'd be in disk mode or something.

    You can only sync the iPod Touch to one mac. You could hook it up but you can't sync. If you did, you would lose everything on you iPod. It doesn't work like a hard disc iPod, no disc mode. Best bet is to keep one of those cheap usb memory sticks around. I have a 4gig that is great for getting stuff off of other computers.

    Really? I thought you could use it as a flash drive.

    The iPod touch and the iPhone don't have that ability.:(

    Thanks for the replies.

    The reason I didn't want the usb/cd methos is because I may want to buy a movie and download it on my touch. Or watch a home movie from my vacation on my way home. I'll be away from my mac for one month so I hope you can see the dilema.
