    Just plugged my touch into an XP machine WITHOUT iTunes 7.4.3 or whatever the newest version that recognizes the touch and it installed it as a camera, and created a drive for it in My Comp. Just thought it'd be interesting to some ...

    hehe, more interesting thing is even on a Mac with OSX.

    iPhoto thinks iPT is a camera. altho named "apple iPod", it treat it just like a camera, with a camera icon.

    This is because they used the iPhone software. That uses a camera, so thats why they recognize it as a camera so that they can get the photo's off.

    this is basically because Apple did a poor job on the iPod Touch OS and iTunes currently.

    My guess it's they are using some sort of hack to identify the iPods... like
    if serial number in range of xxx or if flag = ipod
    display as iPod Touch.
    else
    display as iPhone

    therefore, older versions of the iTunes/drivers don't have this hack so they'll recognize it as a phone with a camera.
