Connecting XDA 2 to iPod
I have done quite a lot of research on this and I was wondering if anyone could say whether this would be likely to work or not. I would like to connect my XDA 2 to my 40GB iPod in order to use the disk space to watch videos. Here is the proposed method to get it all to work:
1. Buy the O2 XDA 2 Backpack:
This adds a CF slot to the XDA 2.
2. Buy a CF USB Host controller:
This will enable USB host support on a Pocket PC device with a CF slot.
3. Buy an Apple USB sync cable:
This will enable the iPod to be connected to a host through USB.
4. Install the appropriate 3rd party driver, I believe this offers the necessary functionality:
With all that in place I would then expect to see some or all of the capacity of the iPod available as a mounted drive on the XDA 2, provided that the iPod is formatted as FAT32.
Have I overlooked something or is it worth trying this expensive method to link the devices?
Ive based some of this theroy from a discussion on connecting an ipaq to an external hard disk here: http://www.pocketpcmag.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=305
Hope someone can help!
