I think the iPod can be set to be a external drive. Here's what I found in the online users manual:

Using iPod classic as an External Disk
You can use iPod classic as an external disk to store data files.
Note: To add music and other audio or video files to iPod classic, you must use iTunes.
For example, you won’t see songs you add using iTunes in the Mac Finder or in
Windows Explorer. Likewise, if you copy music files to iPod classic in the Mac Finder or
Windows Explorer, you won’t be able to play them on iPod classic.
To enable iPod classic as an external disk:
1 In iTunes, select iPod classic in the source list and click the Summary tab.
2 In the Options section, select “Enable disk use.”
3 Click Apply.
When you use iPod classic as an external disk, the iPod classic disk icon appears on the
desktop on Mac, or as the next available drive letter in Windows Explorer on a Windows
PC.
Note: Clicking Summary and selecting “Manually manage music and videos” in the
Options section also enables iPod classic to be used as an external disk. Drag files to
and from iPod classic to copy them.
If you use iPod classic primarily as a disk, you might want to keep iTunes from opening
automatically when you connect iPod classic to your computer.
Chapter 5 Extra Features and Accessories 47
To prevent iTunes from opening automatically when you connect iPod classic to
your computer:
1 In iTunes, select iPod classic in the source list and click the Summary tab.
2 In the Options section, deselect “Open iTunes when this iPod is connected.”
3 Click Apply.

The way I read this, though, is you won't be able to see your music files in the browser.

Also, when you enable disk use you'll be warned with a pop-up saying: Enabling the iPod for disk use requires manually ejecting the iPod before each disconnect, even when automatically syncing music.
