Flash Drive iPod Mini

Our middle daughter's pink iPod mini died last month... after doing a quick internet search I found this...

After a quick trip to MicroCenter for a flash drive and new battery (I figured since I was going to be in there I might as well replace the battery too) I came home, broke open the iPod, switched out the parts, and now it works like a charm. Supposedly the flash drive (with no moving parts like the original hard drive) should last forever.

So there you have it - your old 4GB or 6GB iPod mini could have 7.5GB+ storage space.
