Hi,
I used to be able to drag and drop files for storage onto my iPod, after it appears on my desktop as a device but my new iPod touch no longer appears on my desktop as a device, so i can't access this functionality. Is there a way of changing this??
Cheers
oli.powell,
I'm afraid as of now there is not. I use an Application Called File Magnet it cost S4.99 USD [iTunes Link|http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=28479716 1&mt=8] I personally really like it, However as it does cost money there are free options on the App Store as well.
I hope that help,
Weston
