Dead iPod Chronicles, Part 2

I had, as some people might say in the UK, a "wizard wheeze".
(translation: a "jolly good idea dont you know old chap")

You can very easily follow my train of thought:
Compactflash card reader = ATA interface
iPod HDD = ATA interface

I decided to give it a try to see if the broken disk would be at least recognised.

Being of a "lets give it a try and deal with the explosions later" sort of guy, I of course reckoned without the current draw of a HDD as opposed to a flash disk. Fortunately only the card reader was burned out. Ah... I love the smell of burning electronics in the morning.
