    I've owned a few iPod's through the course of years, and have to say I loved the 5th gen iPod most, but gave it to my brother for a gift. I'd like to get a new classic, but bleh. The UI isn't my favorite, is there a way to get the old UI where it covered the whole screen instead of having split screen? thanks.

    i would love this as well... especially if it could also work with the old camera connector kit like my 80GB video did... such a great feature for photography on the go.

    @herruberraschen - are there any online at a reasonably affordable price? most iPod classic's earlier than the 7th gen are more expensive (at a new price) than the current gen. :-/

    If not I may break down and pay the extra amount for the older 5/5.5 model.

    Upon reading various google searches, it appears some users hack in firmware into their ipods, couldn't one simply take the older firmware of the 5/5.5g video and place it into the 6g classic?

    No, the 6G has an encrypted firmware and has a very different internal setup the the 5/.5G iPod.
