  • DiskAid for USB File Transfer Mac + PC 100% Free


    Windows users are familiar with iPhoneBrowser, an awesome little program that allows file transfer via USB cable from a Windows computer to iPhone or iPod Touch. Historically OS X users have been without a USB file transfer program and have relied on sftp to access the iPhone's file system via wifi.

    In steps DiskAid.

    DiskAid is a nice little client that allows file transfer via USB to the iPhone. Now Mac users can transfer files via USB just like the Windows folks. DiskAid is a quick, 100% free download for either Mac or PC.

    Just run DiskAid, plug in the iPhone or iPod Touch and you're good to go! Simply drag and drop to copy files and folders between your computer and your iPhone or Ipod Touch. Couldn't be easier!

    You can grab your very own free copy of DiskAid from their site.

      It's just a file transfer tool, no more than that. But you can access root, as long as your iPhone is jailbroken. The only exception seems Ziphoned jailbreaks, which apparently don't work. Surprise, surprise....

      meh, I'm happy with cyberduck and openSSH. It would drive me crazy having to tether my phone to the computer with a short cable that I had to pull out of the ac adapter in my room.

      i agree. no wires is handy. however, transfering large cycorder files via wifi is a drag. if this is significantly faster, i might give it a try. anyone test them against eachother?

      It's not meant for the purpose of uploading to watch a video. It's just an application that allows you disk access to use the device as a USB flash drive.
