Thank you,

 

Today I will attempt the upgrade mine to 256gb mSATA if that fails then I will upgrade it to the 240gb drive, at that point I will see if I can still use the 7th gen headphone jack and hold switch with the fat cover because I don't want to lose the headset functionality.

Looking forward to hearing about the result.

Sadly I think you'll find the msata will not work with the 7th gen, but I'd love to be proved wrong!

Yeah I know, but that will open the possibilities to try others mSATA to ZIF adapters and hopefully we can find one that works.

 

(I also acquire a second 5.5th gen 80gb iPod and on worse case scenario I will use the mSATA drive in it.)

No worries. Really hoping 256GB works!

Good luck - steady hands will steer you straight :)

No joy, the mSATA worked great with the iPod video but not with the 7th gen even after formatted and running on the iPod video.

 

Waiting for another mSATA SSD to 40 Pin ZIF adapter to try, I really enjoy the 7th gen so this is a bummer.

See I find the 7th gen tiring to listen to over long periods (which is what I use it for).  I'm not entirely surprised by the lack of success on the 7th gen but hope you have better luck with a different adapter.


Cheers

Yes definitely you can, you need the same parts you would order for the 7th gen iPod.

That's if you have the fat 160GB version of the 6th gen iPod.

Thanks a lot.

The Classic 80gb iPod is always the slim.  (The iPod video 80gb have the same thickness as the 160gb iPod Classic)

 

Edit - alternately you can replace the 80gb drive with a 160gb drive using the back cover you have avoid buying back cover, battery and hold switch)

I've sent you a pm to check if my ipod can be upgraded to 240.

I post the link here too.

Thank you all.
