    You can search for PCMACLAN (discontinued) on Google.

    I think samba would be a simplest solution, will waiting for apple to decide to add Mass Storage Device support to the iPhone-iTouch.

    Hi !
    if you compare winscp with sftpdrive, why pay the extra bucks ?!
    I assume if you start playing a mp3 on the virtual drive it will also first copy it local and then start, right ??
    As it would be with winscp...


    Or am i wrong ?

    My goal was to have iPhone as a disk in Windows Explorer and treat it/use it like a regular external usb-disk with copy/move etc etc just as an ordinary external usb-disk, and THAT was what SftpDrive gave me.

    No, it doesn't copy to local drive, just plays the song directly from the iPhone.

    No it has nothing to do with USB, you can mount your iPhone without connecting it to your PC.

    SftpDrive will only mount a networked ssh server(wifi for your case) as a mapped letter on Windows.
    So you'll never get the speed of the USB (especially when you want to use it as a USB key and store large files on it.)

    iPhoneExplorer is a free software that really make use of the USB by binding the AFC service. http://code.google.com/p/iphonefs/

    The iPhoneFS is a small service/app based on WinFUSE that allows you to see the iPhone as a drive in Windows explorer, or any Windows application. It works by using the AFC service on the iPhone and mapping it to CIFS server functiions, making you iphone seem like a network drive.
    On Mac there is no solution except iPhoneDisk but it's not working well yet.

    Also check out iPhoneDrive (not free) on Mac, it is really using the USB connection to access your root's home in the Media partition in your iPhone-iTouch.

    Hi there !

    I f we have the phone mounted as a drive now, does anyone know if some of the iTunes alternatives are working now for managing your music ( as the iTunes Control folder is exposed and accessible now ) ?

    That'd be great !

    In order to fix that problem, simply install the Microsoft Loopback Adapter.
