    Sharepod: still need itunes (or several components) for newer iphone/touch devices (below is from author page)

    As of version 3.8.4, SharePod supports the new iPhone / iPod Touch models.
    You must have iTunes (or at least AppleMobileDeviceSupport.msi and Quicktime.msi from the iTunesSetup.exe package) installed.

    Yamipod: still need itunes for newer iphone/touch devices that cannot be set into hard disk mode (below is from author page). Yamipod hasn’t been updated in sometime and errors are starting to popup with devices with updated firmware. Yamipod and Floola I believe have the same developer. Floola is updated more frequently; however, itunes is still required for the newer models (2G+)

    Just make sure you:

    * have run iTunes at least once (which setups iPod correctly)
    * have at least one song on the iPod
    * set your iPod to work as a Hard Disk as shown here. It’s also suggested to uncheck the Open iTunes when this iPod is attached option.
