Question about Apple Battery for Ipod 4TH and Photo
Hi, ok basically i love ipod 4th gen...for some strange reason, and basically everyone has the same problem, the hard drive keeps breaking. so i look on the net to try and prevent this, and its obvious "solid state drive". however i found a cheaper way. To buy a compact flash card and a 1.8" HDD to Compact Flash converter, Right bought them off from ebay. Now i had my ipod 4th gen but busted logic board by accident so bought a broken one from eay with hard drive problem,. short circuted logic board by accident. So i though why not get Ipod Photo 4g and put it in there. Well i did and it worked!! i could read my compact flash and stick files on it, however in windows it asks me to restore and in mac i can sync songs. Right heres the problem i try both of them, but when i disconnect it would not allow me to plug into wall because i get folder icon, and same thing happens again...and again. i read on internet and others have also failed with ipod photo, but some guy managed to do it, and he said the pin-out was different on the converter, so i tried all pins and nothing worked. can someone please help me and i love my ipod and compact flash so i dont want ssd or hdd. Thanks

It's not hard. and in fact doesn't even involve any soldering - the only memory card format that is electrically compatible with an ATA drive is Compact Flash - but you can get adaptor cards that will let you plug them directly into the ZIF interface that the 1.8" HDDs use.
Obviously, you want the biggest CF card you can get your hands on - once you install it, you will need to connect to itunes and do a system restore, since obviously there is nothing written on the CF card.
I have done this myself with an iPod classic and a 32GB CF card - the battery life seeems slightly improved, but only slightly.
