I wanted to change my iPod’s HDD to an SSD drive - but here is the deal: the iPod Classic uses those tiny 1.8 inch disk drives connected with a very particular flat-ribbon cable called “ZIF/CE” connector, which is not that common. I could only find small capacity ZIF SSDs… come on! My iPod had 160GB, I didn’t want to settle for less! Another option is a ZIF adapter to Compact Flash. The adapters are cheap, but a 256GB Compact Flash Card not so much… Then I found the iFlash board adapters for SD Cards - made by Tarkan Akdam

Tarkan Akdam? Who is this guy?
The iFlash website is full of information - but his personal blog has very few posts, no twitter account, no photos… So I wrote him an email: are you shy? in which country do you live? how have you started making iPod adapters?
And he wrote back, saying he is not shy, just a very busy and private person. He is an electronic engineer working with audio and TV productions, product design and development - even so, he keeps making newer iFlash models. It seems incredible! Would it be true? It could be a company, you know? There was a time I imagined Peter Norton could be just an actor! Anyway, I found a lot of iFlash reviews, the adapters are real and work!

    Let me give you my advice which is not to buy any product from Kingston mainly due to the fact they are selling their product more expensive then they deserved. Recommend MIcron for ram, Toshiba for all flash storage solutions.

    Yeah, I have an iPod classic just like that one, but I haven't used it in years. Probably works just fine though.
