    Does anyone know if you cab upgrade the amount of space your iPod can have , like adding another 24GB to an 8 to create a 32 iPod touch? Would iTunes automatically format the drive like the Zune software does for the Zune if you upgrade it? And what are the names of the flash drives used in the touch? Thanks.

    I really don't think it's possible. Then again I don't really think it's possible. As far as your idea, I'm not quite sure I'm following you, when say upgrade drive space externally what were you thinking of?

    By externally I meant opening the iPod up and upgrading the flash drive space. Should have replaced hardware mod with externally >.< . But it would be awesome to upgrade the iPod to one with a higher capacity as a DIY.

    External= outside
    internal= inside

    Impossible. The flash chip is connected by hundreds of tiny connectors. You would need a machine that could microsolder the old chip of and put the new chip on. You would end up spending much more than the price of a new 32gb iPod Touch.

    Edit: Also, for an external solution to work, Apple would have to support it in their firmware. That's unlikely, since they would rather have you buy a new iPod than upgrade an old one.
