Wish to replace hard drive with CF Card
My very original 5GB first generation iPod is finally giving out. My wife worked for an Apple company years ago when these came out and she got it as a perk for working for Apple. Well, it has been a helluva great toy, but the hard drive is wearing out (bearing I would assume) and the battery isn't quite what it used to be. So, I want to fix it. I saw this video online and thought that might work, but not sure.
Can you advise? If the compact flash card isn't compatible, can I get a new drive? Preferably larger than 5GB I hope..
Here is the URL for the adapter in the video. It looks like a doable project to me. Just go slow and be gentle and you should be fine. Also including a URL for flash cards. There are many suppliers of flash cards--this is just a sample. Ralph
