Is the 5.5G iPod's HD PATA or the new ZIF interface?

    I have an "old" 80GB 5.5G iPod and since apple didn't release a new 240GB model I'd like to instal one of the new 240GB drives in mine when they've been out for a month or two and hopefully have dropped in price a little.

    The only potential setback is which interface the 5.5G iPods used for their hard drives...

    Does anyone know?

    The website itself doesn't list that spec... but judging from that picture the 5.5G appears to be the old PATA connected and not compatible with the 240GB.

    Damn...
