Wish to replace hard drive with CF Card

Texto:

Greetings...

My very original 5GB first generation iPod is finally giving out.  My wife worked for an Apple company years ago when these came out and she got it as a perk for working for Apple.  Well, it has been a helluva great toy, but the hard drive is wearing out (bearing I would assume) and the battery isn't quite what it used to be.  So, I want to fix it.  I saw this video online and thought that might work, but not sure.

Can you advise?  If the compact flash card isn't compatible, can I get a new drive?  Preferably larger than 5GB I hope..

Many thanks..
