I recently witnessed a dissection of a 40 GB iPod, and noticed how tiny the HDD was. It is smaller than any PCMCIA HDD I have seen. Does anyone know if someone is working on a way to hack the HDD's proprietary interface to a PCMCIA interface? The Toshiba 5 GB PCMCIA HDD costs way too much for it's capacity. If someone could hack the interface on a Toshiba iPod HDD, it woulc conceivably cost less money to buy an iPod, and crack it open to take the HDD and use it as an external HDD for a laptop. Does anyone know if anyone is working on something like this? When I looked at the HDD, it looked like it had some sort of mini IDE connection on it, before it went to the ribbon connected to the PCB.

Why would you take the hard drive out of thr ipod to use it as an extrenal hard drive when the ipod can be used as one anyways? Just plug it in and drag and drop.
