As far as I know the camera connectivity has been dropped from newer iPods.

I don't have a classic(went from an iPod photo to a touch), but since it is hard drive based you should be able to use it like am external hard drive and backup up your photo on that until you get back home. Just make sure disc mode is activated.

Not by plugging it into the camera. The storage tech is irrelevant - the two devices won't communicate with each other.

Yes you can. As stated before in this thread . The new line of iPods has had the ability to function in disk mode disabled

Now with Leopard

What does the camera have to do with it? The OP also asked if he/she could upload the pictures to his/her computer and then copy them to the ipod as a back up. I included the quote as to not confuse them on what i was talking about.

The camera connector does not support current-gen iPods, and I don't think Apple will ever make one that does.
