is there a free program out there that can import photo's from a 5g iPod in their albums? so that I can put them back into my iPhoto library. The reason why don't want to spend any money is because I have my iphoto library backed up before my EHD crashed, so I could just import it from the disc but I would need to put them back in albums.
thanks

you can try to get them of by displaying hidden files
ill post the command:
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
then restart finder
and then navigate through the ipod till you find all the photos in their albums
i havnt tried it before but it works with the music
to rehide the files type the command in again replacing TRUE with FALSE
and then restart finder

umm, have you looked everywhere on the ipod with the hidden files they have to be there

>Photo Database (Unix Executable File)
from iPod>Photos
>Thumbs>
4 files in here "F1019_1.ithmb", "F1019_1.ithmb", "F1019_3.ithmb" and "F1019_4.ithmb"

Hmm, intresting. normally (even with viewing hidden files) there are full res copies of my photos (I selected coppy full res pictures in iTunes prefs). but now all I get are the 3 files
