Step 1: Materials and Tools

You are going to need:

* Broken IPod (preferably nano)
* Working USB Memory Stick

* Small Screwdriver
* Hot Glue Gun

Step 2: Disassemble Ipod

Pretty straight forward just get rid of all the insides....
your going to need some small screwdrivers once you get to the inside, they help with popping the side off as well.

Note: I took one of the layers out of the LCD screen to put over the plastic just for a cool mirrored effect... this is not needed but the LCD screen must be removed

Step 3: Disassemble USB Stick

This might be rather tricky depending on what kind of usb stick you have but all you want is the inside part shown in the pictures below

Step 4: Glue the USB Into the Case

Take your usb guts and glue them into the bottom of the ipod through the connector hole, under some circumstances you may need to grind away some metal off the IPod to allow the usb to stick out.

Step 5: Put the IPod Back Together

Pop it back on there and your done!
