    you see, my ipod mini (2G, 6 gb) just cant hold my music library anymore. Is there anyway to swap the 6gb harddrive with a bigger one?

    There is an 8 GB version of the CompactFlash card that contains the drive. I'd say it's possible, but it wouldn't be easy.

    Very possible. Deffinatley not easy. You would need to have some serious experience to do something like that.

    I've got a 1G mini with a dead harddrive if you'd like to buy something to "hack on" and see what you can learn. :) It looks as if it is possilbe to do, you just need to know how... no sense in breaking your mini trying to find out!

    I totally agree...but that wasn't the question. Can the OP upgrade? Yep, it'll just cost a frickin' fortune! :D
