ipod device icon?

Why does an ipod touch show up as a camera in devices and computer folder? How do you make it show up correctly?

Hi wheresjerry,

you might take a look at this thread talking about the iphone doing the same thing, there's a couple of links I posted there, may be useful for the touch just the same.

Your IPod Touch doesn't have a camera? Get with the program man. LOL

Just kidding, I noticed this a while ago, and I get the same thing. It's only an Icon. The functionality is still there. I wonder what Icon category comes up when you plug in a Zune .... it should be the same for any IPod, I would think.

Airbot, this is more cosmetic then functionality. I get the same thing, but it works fine. 7 categorizes it as a camera for some reason.

I know it is but still could be an annoyance for some none the less.

the Iphone Icon is a shitty 128 square pixel, ANY way to incorporate my own successfully would be apreciated, I have mine in propper 256X256 and with my theme on it as well, so it IS of some importance to me
