Howto enable disk mode on iPod Touch 2G and iPhone

Howto enable disk mode on iPod Touch 2G.

Short answer: as of iPod Touch software 2.2.1 there is no built in way to do it. I guess this is because the OS on the Touch is a cut down version of OSX, while on regular iPods its not.

I've found two third party methods of having disk mode on your Touch (and iPhone as well): Phoneview $19.95

and Touchcopy at $24.99

Update: There's another application that make you iTouch / iPhone show as a disk: iphone explorer from Seems to work OK, and its free!

You can get even better value by installing Good Reader from, currently $.99.
