How to use the iPod as a drive to store and transfer files on
Please be warned: this method won’t work for iPod Touch, as it has no capability of Disk Mode.
If you’re a proud owner of iPod Touch, try CopyTrans Filey to transfer files from PC to device for free.
Connect the iPod to the computer
Select the iPod icon in the Source pane
Click the Summary
Select “Enable disk use” or “Manually manage music and videos”.
Either one will allow you to use iPod as a drive. If you select “Manually manage music and videos”, iTunes won’t automatically update the iPod. If you want iTunes to automatically update your iPod, select “Enable disk use” instead
The iPod drive appears in My Computer in Explorer. Double-click the icon to open the drive and view its contents. You can now simply drag files to/from your iPod.
Make sure to eject iPod before disconnecting it from your computer.
The iPod display will say “Do Not Disconnect” when disk use is enabled (iPod shuffle’s status light will blink orange until after it’s ejected).
