Ipod 80gb Hack

Basically, I have a 40HD gb computer, (I run windows XP) I don’t have much space with other games on it and all.

Installing itunes and keeping shit on my computer would take up so much room already. I’m wondering if I can somehow use it as a harddrive or get music strait onto it, iTunes really fucks you over as a user.

My friend said I could boot the OS of it to linux and use it as a hard drive. Possible? Any ideas?

iPod classics can use rockbox iirc, which is what he’s talking about.

No one should use iTunes unless you absolutely need to (i.e. iPhone)

I recommend Foobar2k + iPod manager - musicmusic’s foobar2000 stuff

have you tried this?

i-FunBox | File Manager, Browser, Explorer, Transfer Tool for iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch via USB

You can use it as a HDD normally without having to Rockbox it. Why don’t you like iTunes?
