Well... I'm finally so hacked off with my Ipod and my Pioneer head unit fighting with each other that I'm going to look at a different idea.

My Pioneer has the ability to read directly from a USB device which, in normal circumstances would be a memory stick.

However, my collection on the Ipod comes to some 70GB. I know I cannot use a USB based external 2.5" SATA drive because of the power overhead but, am I right in thinking that the power requirements of an SSD are little, if any, more than those of a memory stick?

Any opinions gratefully accepted please.

Also, can you just fit an SSD into a USB 2.5" external HDD case?

Can't see any reason why a SSD drive wont fit in the 2.5" USB box. They are designed to replace normal drives, so shouldn't be any different, other than possibly being a bit thinner.

Having now looked on fleabay, I can get a 128GB USB 3.0 memory stick for less than the price of an SSD, which would leave me with an SSD to fit in my laptop :)

Just remember you are never meant to defrag a SSD.
