I was wondering if running Leopard off of my 60GB iPod Photo (with a slightly non-functional screen) will damage the HD in the long run? Or, does anyone know of cheap external Firewire HDs?

I doubt it'd work too well on an iPod. That's a lot of HD use too.

You can build a firewire HD fairly cheap from Newegg - just buy the HD and a firewire enclosure. Should be good to go. :)

Oh, and welcome to the forum!

Thanks for the warm welcome. About Leopard, if I rarely boot into Leopard the iPod HD should be ok, right? I'm pretty much getting it only for Dashcode & maybe checking out the iChat stuff. I used to boot Virtual PC 7 with XP Pro off of the iPod's HD & it didn't seem to do much (if any) damage

I don't know why it wouldn't work, although this is all pretty new so it's untried . If you check it out, let us know how it goes!
