In that case you can use the Classic's 7th gen 160gb hard drive, it works great with your ipod (after replacing the ribbon cable too) That is pod cannot read the second platter on double platter driver like the 240gb one we use to upgrade the 5th and 7th gen iPod. So you should be good as long as you use a single platter drive.

If yu use the 7th gen drive you will need to put some foam to prevent the drive from moving inside the ipod, the 7th gen iPod drive is slimmer.

You will need a TOSHIBA MK1634GAL drive found on eBay for $66 and the Apple iPod Video 5/5.5 Gen HD Hard Drive Ribbon.

So nothing bigger than a 160? Also, any other simple mod recommendations once I get it open? Any better batteries or anything to stuff in there?

I have 256GB in my 7th gen (bought modded with a thicker enclosure on eBay from China) and 240GB SSD in my Whipmod (modded 5.5 gen).

What kind of drive (256GB) did you put into the 7th gen?

I bought it pre modded over a year ago so I don't know

PA450LL - Is this 5.5 gen?

Yes sir it is.

post #1868 of 3504

Awesome!  Thanks Cmarti.  What would be your recommendation for upgrading it to over 160gb?  I'm thinking this should work:  http://www.amazon.com/256GB-RunCore-1-8-inch-Solid-State/dp/B00DZ416YW

 

Or is there a method that's just as efficient and cheaper?

post #1869 of 3504

Thanks, cmarti!  Would this be compatible for upgrade? 256GB-RunCore-1-8-inch-Solid-State (sorry, I cannot post links, Head-fi thinks I'm a spammer).  Or would you recommend something else to get it above 160gb?

It should work as long as the drive voltage is 3.3 volts.

I can't verify this because I haven't found a data sheet on it as of yet.

post #1872 of 3504

If you can see a picture of the drive, it will say 3.3v or 5v on the sticker on the drive that has all the drive info (brand, model number. etc.) on it

This was a great idea, however I cannot find an image with decent enough resolution...

cmarti , does the ipod 7th gen work with the Tarkan and CF card? If it does, is it required to change the ribbon cable?

post #1875 of 3504

Yes it works and you can utilize the same ribbon cable that comes with the iPod.
