    Hi guys,

    My 30Gb iPod video broke a while back, and I hadnt bothered to do anything with it for ages, until just now. I thought "it might be quite useful having a portable 30Gb drive". Is there any way i can turn this thing into a portable drive, just like a usb stick.

    Its a Toshiba MK3008GAL. Is there any use for it? Or should i just throw it in the trash?

    if the Ipod is still functional enough, I know you can enable iPods for disk use in iTunes on Macs, I'm fairly certain the same can be done for PCs. It would at least save you the trouble of buying an enclosure.
