Default iPods - Harddrive

Does anyone know how to get songs off of other peoples iPods. It can be done because a friend stole all of my songs, but how!

If you have iTunes and a iPod USB/Firewire connector (used for transfering songs etc.), you can sync any iPod with your computer.

I think if you enable hidden folders you can see them. Something like that. You can find it on the internet. After all it is a hard drive.

Actually it is not a hard drive I don't think it is refered to as a flash drive. If it was a hard drive it would be way to delicate if your battery went dead or you droped it it would break. (It has happend to me with a 30 GB hard drive)

Can you store any other things besides music on them?

Actually they are hard drives. I think they first came out with solid state memory, but that was short-lived. They've got super tiny magnetic platters and everything now. In fact, Toshiba just came out with a 0.85" 2.0/4.0GB drive (last link on this post). They're pretty cool, actually. I wonder if anyone has figured a way to use them with regular computers.

In the first link, it says the little bastards can take a 500G shock. Imagine your body suddenly weighing 500 times the weight it is now, and you start to get an idea of the durability these things actually have.
