how can i increase memory of ipod mini?
Is this a good question?
Basically, inside the iPod Mini is a microdrive- essentially, it's a harddrive. Lots of people have found that the microdrive is in fact swappable with a compact flash card. Once you get it open, you'll see the harddrive on a small cable. The microdrive should be surrounded by blue rubber bumpers and black adhesive.
I'd look into ordering a compact flash card off eBay. It makes for a faster Mini (less delay in queueing songs), and it is less susceptible to shock damage.
I would also recommend using this solution(http://geektechnique.org/projectlab/753/...),
I got my daughter a new nano and took her old iPod mini and replaced the battery(from iFixit with kit) and at the same time put in a 16GB CF card, now I wish I had went ahead went to 32 GB. ~:)
I am trying to replace an iPod Mini 2Gen 4GB microdrive with a 32GB Compact Flash. I read on one site that I need to copy the “iPod Control Files” to my new flash drive. I am assuming that is the ipsw file.
My Compact Flash drive is formatted as one partition FAT32.
Do I need to just copy the ipsw file to the partition and then install the CF drive into the ipod or do I have to do something special like format it into two partitions?
Can someone please let me know how to get the new CF drive working in my iPod Mini?
I tried connecting the old microdrive to the computer but my CF reader just gives me an error when I try to connect it to my computer so I cannot just copy the microdrive contents to the CF drive.
Thank you for your help.
