    I know a lot of people have put larger CF cards in other HDD based iPods like the mini, but what about newer flash-based iPods? I know the current nano is too small for a CF card, but is there a way to hit 32 gigs in the 5th gen nano?

    The 8GB or 16GB flash chips that are inside the current nanos are soldered to the logic board, u cannot upgrade/modify them easily.

    Well that sure sucks, the 5th gen nano is the pinnacle of iPod form factor IMO, the lack of 32 GB is the sole flaw, and a big one IMO.

    That's how I feel about the 2nd Generation Nano, I love its size, but I just wish I could upgrade it to 32 or 64 GBs with a new battery, I just use mine for music so I don't care about the small screen.
