    Hi, I think that I need to change the battery in my iPod. And I was thinking that I could just change the harddrive to a solid state drive while I'm at it. Is this possible?

    Unless there is a mystical 1.8" HDD that I don't know about, no. I also don't understand why you would want to. Go drop some money on a new 16GB iPod touch.

    Like these?

    You would need a ZIF-to-SATA adapter to connect it to the iPod. Not sure if these a) exist and b) would fit into the casing.

    edit: Ok, for some reason I didn't see the link above. Try that.

    Except, how much money is an iTouch? $300. How much is a stick of 32gb flash memory? $90.00. so it would be cheaper to replace the memory in my iPod.


    So has anyone tried that adapter that was on the link?

    Seems interesting. Anyone want to give it a try?

    CF cards are pretty big. most likely won't fit. In addition, if I remember correctly, the Nano storage are onboard and can't be changed.
