Chapter 12. The iPod as Hard Drive > Storing Data Files on the iPod

12.3. Storing Data Files on the iPod

From now on, every time you connect the iPod to your Mac or PC, its icon pops up on the desktop (Mac) or in the My Computer window (PC). You can go right to town using the iPod as the world's shiniest, best-looking, and most expensive floppy disk, as shown in Figure 12-2.

Figure 12-1. Turning the iPod into an external hard drive is a matter of turning on a special checkbox in the iPod Preferences dialog box.
Here's how you do it in iTunes for Windows and Macintosh: Attach the iPod, open iTunes, select the iPod in the Source list, and click the small iPod icon at the bottom of the iTunes window (circled at top).
You've just opened the iPod Preferences dialog box (shown here in Mac OS X, left, and Windows, right). Click the General tab, turn on the "Enable disk use" checkbox and click OK.
