nahh. after having the 60 gig drive running on the bottom of the thing it's totally fine after 8 hours of straight usage (mp3 playing, web browsing, ms word).

the 80 gigger isn't going to be a problem. no way no how.

How about using the new 160GB drive from Toshiba that is used in the latest iPod Classic?

Toshiba's 1.8-inch 160GB PATA disk is ready for KIRFers

yah. as long as it's the 5mm thick one, it'll fit. you've got to cut a bunch of plastic bits and a big chunk of the magnesium frame out then sand everything smooth.. i'm going to post a tutorial when this stupid hard drive gets here and i have a chance to actually install it.

also. damn you have a lot of these mini's.

Any update? I have a spare 1.8" drive from a Dell D430 upgrade that I would love to experiment with. Also, do you have a link where we could order the needed adapter?

Will that fit in the Mini 9? It looks like the 70mm version. Or is that the reason why you removed this chunk?
