Description

Would you like to access your mobile device storage as a local hard disk on your computer?

This is the only application on the App Store that lets you do just that!

Your mobile device will be seen as a local hard disk, so you can format it, partition it (if you like) and use a filesystem of your choice.

You can use any filesystem that is supported by the operating system running on your computer.

If you don't know what iSCSI Target stands for, please read:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISCSI_Target

Why is iSCSI any different when compared with other file sharing techniques that you get using other file sharing applications?

● iSCSI allows much faster access because it works at a lower level giving it technical superiority

● You can use a filesystem of your choice: gives you all the benefits that you are used to have

● You could even make it a boot drive (if you have enough knowledge about using iSCSI device as a boot device)

What is so special about this application?

● Only application on the App Store that implements iSCSI

● Only application on the App Store that allows you to use your mobile device storage space formatted with HFS+, NTFS, ZFS or any other filesystem of your choice

● You can use it from your Mac, Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris or any other operating system that supports iSCSI and is able to make a network connection to your mobile device

● Supports multiple volumes (only one is active)

● Volumes are stored in a raw format, so you could even use volumes created in some other application

● Using iTunes USB File Sharing allows you to:

- download volumes from the application to your computer

- upload volumes from your computer to the application

- make backups of your volumes

● Easily resize existing volume if you need additional space

● Supports fast application switching

● Multitasking support: service will continue to run in the background for up to 10min (iOS limitation)

NOTICE: You need a working network connection between your mobile device and your computer. You can use WiFi or mobile network (if your carrier supports internet tethering you can even use USB or bluetooth).

Works great, but requires some technical experience

:
App works as described. Requires some technical knowledge on the PC/Mac side to know how to connect to an iSCSI Target, but it does work. Free version limits you to 70mb RAW disk images, which only gives about 67mb formatted capacity. $10.99 to unlock the size limit (limited by your iDevice storage size of course). The app makes a raw disk image file so you will NOT be able to access the files on your drive on your iDevice. But it is very nice if you want to quickly store something on your iDevice as a backup.

The only downside I can see is the fact that it will use the entire space of the raw disk regardless of the usage. for example, your 70mb raw disk image uses 70mb of your iDevice's storage, even if you have nothing on it. However this seems to be the only way to get a portion of your iDevice's storage to show up as a standard hard drive, so I would recommend it for advanced users who have plenty of free space on their iDevice.

Be sure to safely remove the drive, which is different than normal USB. Simply disconnect from the iSCSI server from your iSCSI Initiator.

Seems to have some bugs though, as the first time I ran this app, my iPod Touch froze. Had to hard reset it, but when I ran it the second time it worked like a charm. Also seems to fail without error if your disk name has unallowed charactors in it, such as "-". Great start though.

3/5 stars

Had to hard reset as well....

:
First time this came up - everything froze. I suggest a reboot first, then run app first time so that all of your information is saved for background apps.

5/5 stars

Interesting!

:
It does work on my laptop (Windows XP SP3) & now I have a new partition called "Ipod touch" that can be easily accessed via Windows Explorer.

A few steps to follow:
1. download & install "Microsoft iSCSI Initiator".
2. turn on WiFi on the iPod/iPhone and make sure it's in the same subnet with the laptop.
3. open "iSCSI target" and assign a new img file, then switch on "Service active".
4. open "Microsoft iSCSI Initiator", switch to "Discovery" tab and add a new target using the IP and port displayed on your iPod/iPhone.
5. switch to "Targets" and refresh, then select the detected target(name like "iqn.2010-06.local.ios-device:Disk1") and "Log on" (then the "Status" shall be "connected").

For first time use:
6. open XP's "Disk Management Tool", and you should find a new disk without being initialized.
7. right click on the name(! not the new partition) of the new disk to initialize and format it.

8. Now the new disk becomes available and looks just like a normal external hard disk.

Although it supplies only a 70MB(63MB available) space by default, the idea of accessing your iPod/iPhone just like a normal hard disk is amazing!
