iPod nano not bootable?
Thursday, Sep 08, 2005
One of the few functional differences between the iPod nano and the iPod photo is that the nano drops support for firewire, relying on USB for syncing on both Macs and PCs.

This would seem to mean that the nano can't be used as a bootable emergency drive as the mini or full-size iPod can. Not a huge thing, but something to consider if you were hoping for a sub-credit-card boot volume.
