iPad and iPhone Disk Mode is made easy with Phone Disk. Using your standard USB cable, this tiny program runs in the menu bar or system tray of your Mac or PC. When it finds an iPod Touch or iPhone it seamlessly mounts it to your file system so you can directly access its files using Windows Explorer, Finder and every other program.


With the release of iExplorer 3 on July 23, 2012, we are announcing that Phone Disk, as a stand alone product, is being discountinued indefinitely. The disk mounting capabililities that were in Phone Disk have been greatly improved and expanded upon and are now available in the new iExplorer 3.

While we no longer officially support Phone Disk we have left the last public releases of the app available on our downloads page for those who have come searching for it.
