Using an iPod Shuffle as a USB stick

Not only can you just enable the disk use, but you can also use this terminal trick if you're that way inclined:

cd /Volumes/<Your Shuffle Name>/
That will make the Shuffle be in use as well, and you don't need to mount disk images for it.

Using an iPod Shuffle as a USB stick
Authored by: alexrs on Sep 20, '05 08:38:01PM

I just found an ingenious but simpler method:

In the authorized computer:
Just drag files to the iPod Shuffle using Finder

In other computers:
1. Open iTunes
2. Open Preferences
3. Plug the Ipod Shuffle into the USB port
4. Just drag files in and out. While the Preferences panel in iTunes is open it will not ask you if you want to move your playlist to the iPod Shuffle
5. When you're done just close the Preferences panel, answer "No" to the question about the playlists and unplug the iPod Shuffle
