Hi chaps - I'm guessing no but ... is it at all possible to transfer files from my iPhone onto an external hard drive (I'm thinking of holidays with no computer and an iPhone full of photos ie I run out of space and it would be good to transfer them to external storage) ... best Roger - or is it 'Mobile me ?

    You can't do that with just an external drive, you'd need a computer to import the photos. However, you could sign up for MobileMe and upload pictures directly from your phone to your MobileMe Gallery. Or use Dropbox.

    With a MobileMe account, you don't need/use an app to upload photos, they're uploaded directly from your camera roll to your MobileMe gallery. Apple makes this app to view them or share with friends:

    you don't need to sync the iphone with the computer to upload so any computer will do connecting it would make it show up as a "drive" where you can get the pictures out of it put them on a ext usb thingy and delete them from the iphone

    If your iPhone was synced to another computer previously, and that's how your current music got on your iPod, I think you need to use non-Apple utility software to transfer the content off of your iPhone. I don't think we're supposed to talk about those here because the official transfer method as far as Apple is concerned is iTunes.

     

    And with iTunes, music is supposed to go in one direction, from the Mac to the iPhone, unless you bought it on the iPhone. This is to prevent people from using iPhone copy music to everybody else's computer,

     

    You can directly use third party app like: Vibosoft iPhone/iPad/ipod to computer transfer app, this is the review: How do I copy photos from iPhone 4/4s/5 to computer windows
