Make Your iPod Double As A Storage Drive

Besides the fact that iPods are fashionable, user-friendly and keep us rockin' and b'boppin' all day long, there are many hidden (and not-so-hidden) functions of our beloved gadgets that I surmise many of us don't use. I recently started using mine as an alarm clock, but if you're traveling this holiday season, and want to use it as a storage device, it's plenty easy.

With iPod storage sizes exceeding 80GB you can store everything from music, videos, pictures, documents and then some! You can use your iPod as a drive (hard drive or flash drive depending on your iPod) to store and transfer data files (also known as disk mode).

Geek Tip: To transfer music files to your iPod, use iTunes. You can't see the songs iTunes copies to your iPod in the Finder or My Computer. If you copy music files to iPod using the Finder or an Explorer window, iPod won't be able to play them.

For a step-by-step guide on how to transfer and store files onto your iPod visit the Apple website.
