View Full Version : Which iPods use the 1.8" PATA HDDs?

Hello, everyone.

I've recently purchased an Acer AspireOne netbook, and now thinking of upgrading the HDD myself.

It seems like I'll need a 1.8" P-ATA hard drive in order for me to fit it into the AspireOne. But these were hard to find(on ebay), and price of it was around CA$120 for 60-80GB ones.

And I was thinking maybe I can use the iPod Classic/Video's HDD's, because I know for sure that the new iPod classics use 1.8" PATA HDD. And the price would be awesome because I can probably find a broken AS-IS iPod's for sale for cheap (ones that are malfunctioning but hopefully not due to a HDD failure).

So here's my real question: which of the iPods use the 1.8" PATA HDDs? I'm thinking anything newer than iPod Video 30GB should be equipped with one. I really don't care about capacity as long as it's 20GB+ (since this is my on-the-go netbook)

Thanks a lot in advance!
