    So, I have a 5th generation 80GB iPod, and according to the nifty list on the Wiki, it'll work for loading backups. I've looked at some other (although very few are avaliable) threads about this and most people say they're using old iPods that are wiped clean and formatted for USB mode. However, I want to use my iPod for both music and as a portable storage device. How would I go about this? I plugged in my iPod and tried adding a Wii game to it but it says the drive is full, although I've got between 50-60GB free.

    FYI, it's not jailbroken yet.

    tl;dr: I want to use my iPod for both my normal usage of music and for USB storage for Wii games, and it is compatible for that.

    I don't think you can partition an iPod

    and i also don't think you can jailbreak an iPod classic

    You can't Jailbreak normal iPods for starters and there's no current way to use it as a External HDD AND a MP3 Player...Yet.
