Yes, I saw the super-ipod site and a couple of others - my problem is that he _didn't_ attach a 300GB drive to his iPod. If you read the article, he fitted a 6GB 3.5" drive to his iPod, in place of the 40G with which it originally came. It just looks like techno-geeks with poor attention to detail saw the article and automatically assumed he could attach the largest 3.5" drive at the time, 300GB.
Likewise the front-page featured mod: a replacement hard drive was fitted (no problem, I've done that myself before, like for like with a 3G) but the capacity was smaller. I'm after evidence of anyone fitting a drive to an iPod that is larger than any of the drives that generation came with - for example, the guy who played with the "super-ipod" actually fitting a huge HD to it, formatting it and making it work...
Now I have put 5gig g1 drives in g2s and 10 gig in 20 gig g3, but never a bigger drive that the original. mostly because of money:blink:
Macbook 2.1 core duo 1gig 160gb sata iMac g5 w/1 gig 160gig all-in-one and SWEET! iBook G4 IGhz Quicksilver Dual 800's iPod touch "Guys, I think we just lost the platform here" Pete Conrad When in doubt, try SCE to AUX
There was the guy who swapped his Nano's flash memory for a compact flash to IDE adaptor and plugged in a 200GB drive. He reported it working.
thought that was a hoax... if we are thinking of the same one. the modguide looked horribly photoshoped
and as far as the super-ipod goes, it's the fact that he got a drive which was completely unsuported working on his ipod. so if theory is correct you could fit a 300 gig onto it. or any other sized ide/ata driver
