You have a new 30 GB iPod Photo and would like to store, save, or transfer word documents on it. However, it appears that you cannot simply drag and drop them onto the iPod. This is a minor problem that many users encounter. Follow these suggested steps.
1) Open iTunes
2) Go to Preferences
3) Click on iPod tab
4) Select the “Enable disk use” option.
iTunes has to be closed for it to work. So go ahead and close iTunes and unplug the iPod. Now replug the iPod and go to My Computer. This will create a disk image on your desktop which will allow you to store, access, or remove files from the iPod’s hard drive. All iPods show up as an external HD (like a pen drive) and you should see it under My computer when it’s plugged in. Now you will be able to drag and drop documents and just about any files on your iPod!
You may not have to force quit all the iTunes/iPod related services. Just pop open iTunes while the iPod is connected and tell iTunes to eject the iPod. I believe that give permission for the computer to use the iPod as a disk. At the very least, the display on the iPod changes out of the synchronization mode, so it might work.
If you want to be able to read your documents on Ipod:
You can try PSP E-book Creator. It is meant for PlayStation Portable really, but you can convert text files to picture files and view them on the iPod.
Another method to make it readable is you will need to copy all your text into a Text Document and then transfer that Text Document on your iPod. To create a text document: Right Click on Desktop –> New –> Text document.
