there were also 1.5" models which went upto 32gb
iPod nanos don't have mechanical drives, they have solid state flash chips soldered onto the board.

There are 1.8" HDs used in Mp3 players. You'd need an adapater to use normal IDE, though, I think.

Could also use SD cards. Or get a dongle style USB stick if you want smamer.
