At a guess I would say no. The ipod uses a much more powerful processor than the arduino and I guess this has a built in LCD graphics driver.


yes ive seen that u need at least arduino mega and 34 pins to get the ipod lcd to work......... thanks


It would be good if you could us ipod screen but it's more effort than it's worth, i've bought this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320606628830&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT#ht_500wt_705 and it's workinig on my mega right now, it has a 16 bit data bus but you could use it on a Duemilanove if you used a latch for the upper 8 bits, i also have coming this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300495582567&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT#ht_3535wt_924 which even comes with a breadboard adapter, better still, an arduino library is available, so i cannot wait for this to arrive
