IPOD Drive Interface

I'm wanting try and mod an ipod so that a 2.5 inch drive will work with. I understand the size difference but plan on using my cnc machine to make an entire new housing for it. but instead of the 1.8 drives would like to kick it up to the cheaper drives. I've seen various converters for using the 1.8 drives for PCs as jump drives but I'm not sure the connector will work the other way.

Has anyone gotten a 2.5 drive to work off of an IPOD mainboard of anykind?

This will probably never be used on battery power as my purpose for this is for the car and with the keyspan rf ipod streaming device so total portability isnt my goal, which give me flexibility with case size and power requirements.

Any ideas would be helpful and appreciated, I've done some searches on the forums but i'm not finding anything if this is already covered somewhere please provide the link.

Although I have no first hand experience with this type of mod, there are some on this forum who should have some helpful info for you. Good luck with the mod!
