Love this thread!
I've got a couple of old iPods I'm thinking of upgrading, an iPod Mini 2G and an iPod Video 5.5G. I think I'm going to go with a straight CF card upgrade for the mini, but I'm not sure about the iPod Video. It's one of the thicker 80GB models. If I put an SSD ZIF drive or a CF card in there, could I replace the old 80GB back with a 30GB one to thin it down? Or even an 80G 6G back? From what I've read, the 5.5G and 6G have the same dimensions; I realize that doesn't mean they'd be compatible, but I don't have one to physically compare. I'm guessing maybe the ports between the thicker and thinner models don't match, but I can't seem to find that information anywhere. Has anyone replaced the back panel during an upgrade?
