    I have a dead Ipod and was wondering if I took the HD out if I could turn it into a external.

    I have an old ipod video 30gb which I'm using as an external hdd but I did not extract the internal hdd from it. I just formatted it to NTFS and using the usb cable for it.

    will the ipod still connect to itunes?

    if it does, open itunes with ipod connected, and go into the ipod menu and restore it to the factory settings. close itunes right after its erased everything and before its started to actually reset it, and now you whenever you plug it into your computer the computer will view it as a usb drive and you can use it as one [​IMG]
