Can you get more memory on your iPod without buying a new one?

Are you able to get more space and memory (so more room for songs) on your iPod without having to buy a new one?  Is there a way of somehow upgrading your current iPod to get more space on it?

More songs on your iPod

Unfortunately you cannot simply add memory to the iPod; however, there is a way to fit more songs than it currently holds without physically adding any memory. Song files are compressed to different formats (such as mp3s, wmas, etc). The more you compress a song the less room, file size, it takes. Be warned though, compressing a song too much will make the song lose its audio quality. The compression options on iTunes is in the edit->preferences->advanced->importing. In settings you can see the quality ##kbps you can change it to custom and pick the one you want, the higher the number the less compressed it is and the better the song will sound, you can play with it where the song will still sound good but take less room. This way would work when you import songs on iTunes from a CD or a non Ipod supported format. Hope this helped and will allow you to squeeze those extra songs you want.

Good Luck,

Yes, there is a way to add memory

Actually, there is a way to add memory to an iPod.  It does involve taking apart a case, and buying about $50 worth of supplies, but is an easy procedure.  All you need to do is:
1) Open the iPod case
2) Take out the hard drive
3) Buy a coverter to convert the hard drive wire to an SD card reader
4) Insert an SD card that fits your memory needs
5) Close up the case
6) Go to your iTunes and reformat the iPod
7) It will work like normal

This will make your iPod have less memory than it did, but it will be more durable and you will be able to switch memory cards.  In other words, save different playlists onto different SD cards, so when you are in a different mood, you can switch it easily.

Following the above poster's steps is not recommended, especially if you still have a warranty on your iPod as this will immediately render your warranty useless.  There are lots of ways people can crack iPods, but that's a pretty expensive brick if something goes wrong (if you ask me).
