Thanks to this thread I am the happy owner of an upgraded Ipod 5g (early 2006 version) with a 64gb compact flash ssd!
I used the following hardware:
1. Dogix 64gb cf card 133x
2. Micro SATA cables- CF Card 1.8 inch ZIF Adapter for Ipod
There is a bundle for both items on Amazon for about 55 dollars.
Installation was simple and it worked flawlessly. I don't need lots of storage as I'm okay with swapping files if needs be. The ipod is significantly lighter now, which will be nice when bundling it with my Fiio e07k for portable use. Oh, and I went ahead and installed Rockbox while I was at it...
This is my first posting on the Head-fi forums; just thought I would share my experience.
Thanks again to all who have contributed to this great thread.
