Not that I know of. However, I have been using Air Sharing for iPhone/iPod Touch. Just google "Air Sharing iPhone"

How about drop box. You can actually play music from the drop box folder. Limited in size but it is free. There is a app in the app store to download to Itouch...

You can use Diskaid on a jailed, non-jailbroken; iPod Touch and read/write files from the Media partition. You will lose any data on the iPod if you use iTunes to update the OS or restore.

However, the original poster did ask for this without jailbreaking. – Dustin Oct 15 '09 at 18:13
Doesn't he say "jailed"... meaning "not jail-broken"? – Chris Dwyer Oct 15 '09 at 19:14
Diskaid doesn't require you to jail-break your iPhone/iPod – Chris Dwyer Oct 15 '09 at 19:14
it's payware ($10 after 14-day trial), but you only need to jailbreak if you want to access the root of the drive. it doesn't read music/video titles; use TuneAid (same company) for that. i can't tell for sure but assume the "lose any data" bit refers to stuff you've written to the drive with DriveAid. – quack quixote Oct 15 '09 at 23:09

I personally use Files (iTunes link - $5) and it works great. I can wirelessly transfer my data to my iPod Touch. It has some impressive file viewer utilities too.

You can try using any app that has support for uploading files to it, but you'll have to have iTunes on both machines (source & destination). For example, I used a free movie app called FlexPlayer. I "upload" a sample .ISO file to it (in iTunes, under Apps, scroll to the area below where you can upload files to apps), then drag & drop it there. After that, I go to target machine, open iTunes, go to same area as before, click on Flexplayer app, in the list of files select the file then choose "Save to..".
