Howto: upgrading the iPod mini to 8GB

Posted on Wednesday, December 14 2005 @ 04:00:54 CET by

The Apple iPod mini was replaced a couple of months ago by the flash-based iPod nano and today Jason Parry posted a guide on upgrading your iPod mini with a compact-flash type II+ 8GB hard drive from Seagate.
There is now a solution for ipod mini-users. Seagate Technology has just released a large compact-flash type II+ hard drive called the CompactFlash Photo Hard Drive. Just as many once purchased a mini in order to remove the hard drive for digital photo applications, now you can buy a photo drive and use it to expand your mini's storage. This works because the drive is formatted to the same 'Fat 32' standard that digital cameras and iPod minis use. Of course, you will have to tear open your ipod mini, much the way you would to replace the battery, but once you are in there, its simply a matter of unwrapping some tape and delicately removing a connector to the Hitachi 4GB drive, and replacing it with the Seagate 8GB Photo Hard Drive.
You can check out the full guide over here.
