How are you?
I have an iPod Video, the 5th gen one with 30gb.
I enjoy the sound output from the ipod very much so I would like to keep using it.
I would however like to expand it's storage.
From what I read on the web, there are several possibilities for the iPod video, form larger 1.8 PATA hard-drives, to mSata SSD, to Compact Flash cards.
I'm currently working on a fifth generation video 30gb and I'm looking at using this because the iPod only allows for a hard drive that's 5mm thick and Compact Flash Type II memory is already 5mm thick:

Thank you very much for your reply.
I was thinking of going the mSATA SSD route, because my goal is to turn my 5th gen video into a 240gb or 256gb iPod.
The mSATA SSD is more cost efficient than 256gb CF cards.
I am thinking about this adapter:
For the mSATA SSD, I am looking at a Toshiba drive, the HG5d mSATA.
According to this, the drive is 3.3v:
The other option is a 240gb Crucial m500 mSATA SSD.
I cannot find confirmation of any of these setups to work on a 5th gen.
