    Exactly what hyperb0le said, this wouldn't be good for iPods. It's why they warned you shouldn't make it a boot volume. But I guess it would spin less if it was the Home folder but not Boot volume?

    On the other hand, maybe with 10.4, the iPod doesn't spin all the time in target disk mode.

    what would be the alternative, it spins down after a certain amount of time?
