Response to: changing the harddisk

You could change the hard drive quite easily, the problem comes with partitioning the drive to match the iPods expected scheme.


There was an article linked to from apple.slashdot.org that detailed how to remove the volume limiter on european iPods. These instructions also appear to include information on the iPod's partition scheme and how to set it up and then put the firmware back on the OS partition.

        And Europeans wonder why there is no iTunes Music store for them? Too many regulations over there.. The EU idea will hopefully help eventually. For example.. If Italy says 99dB max and France says 100bD and Germany says 95bD, etc..
