You can find a discussion of the 80GB iPod in our user
forums in this thread:
In that thread, GodEater described the current status as
"We (mostly myself, Amiconn, and Jeffb) have arrived at the
conclusion that the disc in the 80GB is ATA-7 compliant -
based on the information from the identify_info returned by
the ATA controller when it's queried. It's returning some
curious information that we're pondering currently :
"According to the information we're getting back - there are
more logical sectors on the disc than physical. We're not
sure if this is relevant or not.
"The information on multi-sector read/write support doesn't
comply with any version of the ATA standard that we're aware
of. Regardless of this - even trying single sector reads fails."
