Bye,

you can upgrade it to a 256GB SDXC card. Just need an adaptor.

Micro SATA Cables - CF Card to 1.8 inch ZIF Adapter for IPOD https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004FD1D2C/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_rOlgvb05C4KS2

And this

SD-CF II: SD to CF Type II Adapter (Supports SDHC MMC) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000YZGCIU/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_BSlgvb1JW8ZNA

I have a 128GB SD card in my 3rd Gen and my 4th gen iPods.

I tried to upgrade my 2nd Gen iPod (2004 and it wouldn't read the card or for whatever reason wasn't upgradable. It's a nice piece of hardware. And near mint condition. #sadface

This is the iPod I couldn't upgrade

I have a 128GB SD card in my 3rd Gen and my 4th gen iPods.

 

Two questions:

 

1) Does a 4th gen see > 128Gb?

 

2) Does your 4th gen have a thin (20Gb) or thick (40Gb back)? When I tried to use a Type II adapter with a 20Gb 4th gen, I ended up shorting something out, so I've been concerned that there is slightly not enough clearance.

 

Thanks...

Don't recall which back, I'm guessing the thicker back. But yes, it does see the 128GB. As does my 3rd Gen iPod.

3rd Gen is actually one of my favorite body styles when it comes to iPods. I like how the buttons light up in a red color.

Can not use that adapter, 4th generation doesnt have ZIF hard drive, Julia you must use this type:
