The drives in the original iPods were 1'8 inch PCMCIA style drives with a female connector that supported up to ATA -5. Here's a link to the drive info
at Toshiba's website:

Here's also a link to an iPod hacking site, it may (or may not) be useful to you:

There's also a large thread about changing the hard drive:

Doh, when I was typing the reply the links were split between several lines, should have realised it'd come out ok in the wash :blush:
