I bought a first gen iPod with a spare Li-poly battery for $20 but it seems to be lacking a hard drive. I don't know if this particular unit originally sported a five or ten gig drive either. Would anyone have a spare drive handy and does it really matter if I put the wrong size drive in the thing?

You might want to check to see if it can be adapted to use a CF memory card. That would use less power and probably be cheaper.

I would but I have never seen Compact Flash cards in odd sizes like 5 or 19gb.
Also, I tried to plug in a spare 20gb drive from a fourth gen and the whole thing completely locked up. There must be something special about the drives.
