I found the other day that a CF card has a similar (if not identical) pin layout to the 1.8" drives used in the iPods. My mate has a 5th Gen iPod which is out of warranty with a dead HDD, so we wanted to experiment with it. could i replace the HDD with a CF card in his iPod? EDIT; i just read that the iPod Minis use microdrives, which have a similar interface to the CF cards. would it be better to use a CF card in an old iPod Mini?
