    Would it be possible to put the memory from an ipod video 60GB into an Iphone? By opening up the ipod and opening up the iphone and switching the memories around?

    And if any one knows when the iphone comes out in italy tell me please

    Due to the different connections, no.

    Two different sizes of HDD, two different types of HDD, two different forms of software to write to them (although not that different).

    An Italian friend of mine has an iPhone. He was an exchange student here and when he bought one I unlocked it for him. So, find Tobi Mosser and there's your Italian iPhone!

    Not quite right: the iPhone has flash memory that's soldered directly onto its motherboard. The iPod has an HDD that's also probably directly soldered on (although it might be a ZIF, I don't know for sure).

    the HDD in an ipod with an HDD (1-4th gen + videos + classics) are all remove-able

    they are not soldered on. nanos, touches, phones and shuffles are flash and are soldered directly onto the logic board of each respective device.

    Oh, really? I didn't know that. What interface does it use?

    No. It could be possible to replace the iPod 8GB with a 16GB. But i believe you would have to remove it from the logic board itself which would probably screw it up.

    It's one of those things where if you ask how you do it, then you can't :rolleyes:

    If you want to make an 8GB a 16GB, just replace the 8GB logic board with a 16GB. No need to mess things up with trying to actually swap out the chips on the boards.
