Please read the summary in the wiki
http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/IpodEightyGB

How should anyone tell if this problem will be present with other
drives without knowing those drives? As I already said, there are
modified players around that run with 80GB disks since the beginning,
without the need for any fix. Which makes it absolutely clear: this
fix is _not_ related to the _size_ of the disk but to the way the disk
(and controller) work. The sector size of the FAT is something
different, the Ipod 5.5G 30GB also uses a different sector size.
