ipod as large storage?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
i have an IPOD mini 4gb and i am curious to know if i would be able to use it as a large storage device? the reason that i am wanting to know is because i would like to transfer alot of files to my mates computer but she dont have a DVD ROM , i think i have heard it to be done but i am not sure if it is 100% possible, also if i can store the files would i be able to extract the files again? all help would be greatly appreciated

It should show up in "My Computer" as a removable hard disk. Just drag and drop and you should be ok.

A much faster way would be to use a home network. You can ususally transfer at about 90mbits on those.

You'll have to go into the folder options under the view tab and enable "show hidden files and folders".

use a homenetwork or just transfer your dvd burner to her compy if you have one... and use it just to burn the dvd's then move it back and transfer thie files.... optical drives are easy enough to install!
