Thanks for the information here! I've tried to read through most of this, but seems like (given the ease of modding the 5 and 5.5G) there isn't a lot of info on modding the 6G 80gb slim - so my questions:
(1) Is it necessary to first format the SSD (I'm using the 128GB Super Talent PATA ZIF ZT2 recommended here) to FAT32 BEFORE installing in the iPod? If so, where is the best place to buy an adapter to plug it into the computer.
(2) If (1) isn't necessary, should I just be able to "plug and play"? I got my first SSD last week and after installing it was met with the red x and couldn't get my iMac to recognize the drive in disk utility, nor could I get it into disk mode. Sent it back as defective and will be trying my new one tonight.
Any guidance is appreciated! Note, I'm modding out of "necessity" as my classic has croaked twice and I'd like to keep it going - have replaced the display, battery and outer shell. All that's needed is to install this SSD!
Thanks in advance.
