Response to: changing the harddisk
The 1.8 Toshiba hard drives used in the iPod are not available for purchase. They used to be sold only to Apple. Now there is another product using them, but the Apple ones still have special firmware and a Apple "tattoo" (silkscreen) on the drive indicating so. Without that it won't work.
