I'll be building the 16gb and when 32gb prices fall
I'll try replacing the HD in my Iriver E10.
but that's way in the future, maybe I can score another Mini till then.
But what do you guys do with the Original microdrives?
Well after much debating (ask anyone who knows me I'm CRAP at making an impulse purchase, spend way too much time deliberating about it!)I pulled the trigger on a bin of a silver ipod mini for the total of £40.00 inc delivery. Originally I hadn't wanted to spend much over £30.00 on it. However this one already had the 850 mah battery installed in it so figured that was worth having a fiver added to the price (plus its one less thing for me to get wrong anyway ). Now I just need to get the card sorted out.
Am I right in thinking that if I just want to use Itunes with it then pretty much any normal compact flash cards would do? Its only if I want to run rockbox (which I do, as the main reason for this project is that I want to just drop and drag my flac files on to the mini without having to faff about with converting them (yes I know about battery life and portables etc)) that I have to be a bit more selective with the cards?
Also has anyone ordered the a-data range of cards from ebay (uk based so cant use new egg sadly)and been ok with them?
Ps they are right about head fi you know! I originally came back after a break to check for gym players!
while looking for Minis on Ebay I recall seeing a vendor doing this Mod
as an option and there's one seller selling 16gb flash memory Minis.
