i have an iPod photo as well. So far, the firmware won't support any RAW viewing. It's possible in the future that Apple will add support for it. It still stores RAW files, however, and for me that's enough... because I use it mainly for my music, and on occasion I'll use it for extra raw storage on vacation. If I was really intent on having a RAW viewer/storage device, I would probably pick up an Epson P-2000 digital wallet, or something.
cheers, oldcsar, may be it's possible to download images from my imac, i haven't tried yet, as this is not my intent. i'd rather use my ipod when travelling, viewing images isn't the issue, just storing them. i have an image tank, but the ipod is so much smaller, and it provides double capacity. i insist it's only a minor software update which could be easily accomplished. i spoke to an apple technician today, he was aware of my prob, but had no clue whether or when. anyway, my ipod refuses to accept RAW data from any of my cams. do i have a settings prob?
