You may need to have itunes installed to see your device, using the bonjour/apple driver etc. if its not detecting it correctly.

But, why dont you not just setup a dropbox account on the ipod, let that upload your photos, then install dropbox on your laptop, login to the account you created on the ipod and all the photos will be automatically transferred into the dropbox folder on your laptop.

do you get any error messages?
Is the ipod showing in your control panel- devices when you plug it in?

Oh, dont think dropbox works with that ipod

Are the photos you require in your camera roll on the ipod?

when i meant free meant free full program not a free trial when u install it become unregistered version and offers so many files transfer and limits to what u want

i want a non pay software with no limit no registration to transfer unlimited files from ipod to computer

I use a program called Pod to PC a few years ago when I accidentally lost all my photos. May be worth a go?

I think part of the problem is that the Ipod seems to store your photos in some special Apple format and so they are not visible as obvious JPEGs, hence why you need a specific program.

Hope this helps,
Ed

i went to pod to pc and came up with this link http://www.macroplant.com/

that software is another trial version if installed unregistered and need to buy ful version to transfer 10 or more files no use

any idea on free non trial where i can transfer more than 100 images at a time becuase i am getting fed up finding software that is requted to buy full version for it
