Hey guys,

I've recently been salivating over the thought of a new C3100 and investigating ways to upgrade it. Seeing as my iPod battery is about to die I was wondering if anybody has tried using the 1.8" drive in a Zaurus?

I'd imagine it follows the CF protocol and therefore it would be just (!) a case of finding a 1.8 -> 3.5 inch adapter.

Imagine a 15Gb Zaurus. I've had desktops with less than that.

The iPods don't have "normal" connectors. The mini has a cf formfactor drive but it doesn't have a normal cf controller. The larger iPods have what looks like cf pinouts but they are different as well. So unless you have one of the first gen iPod mini's it won't work.

Yes, I don't think it would work, but I have often wondered why someone hasn't put one of the same drives used in the iPods into a PDA.

Some ideas:
* Apple might be the lead customer of the drive manufacturer and has exclusivity
* it takes 9-12 moonths to develop a new PDA and the drive might not have been available back then
