Project $50 Ipod is complete!!!
My friend dropped his 3rd gen ipod (scroll wheel > click wheel) and messed up the harddrive so he gave it to me to see if I could fix it after he got a new one because mac wanted to charge him $300 to fix it which is the price of a new one. I ordered a 10 gig harddrive off of ebay for $50 shipped, and spent about an hour today installing it, formatting it, and reinstalling all the software and updates. w00t for my $50 ipod.
I drive a station wagon.
