Yes, both have the zif connector, both use PATA.

That said, you will need a new back cover as the 240GB drive is thicker.

I think it's the back cover of the iPod video you need.

I ordered the back cover of the 6th gen 160GB iPod Classic but that one won't fit the 160GB 7th gen, so I ordered the wrong one.

 

I think I will sell my 240GB drive off again though as it won't work with my 120GB 6.5 gen.

I would need to buy a new iPod classic 160GB but I think it will cost less if I sell the drive and the 120GB iPod and get me a Chinese ready made 240GB iPod.

If you already have a 160GB 7th gen iPod I can provide you the right 240GB drive and help you look for the cover. You would need to do the modding yourself though, I won't risk breaking someone elses gear.

If you don't I'd advise against it and I can give you the link to the ready made Chinese ones.

 

PM me if you want more info.

Hi,

 

I'd be interested to learn more about those "chinese ready made iPods 240GB". Can you fill me in on the details, via Private Message?

 

Thanks,

Here is the source that is said to be trustworthy, the only one I would buy from for now.

This goes back to a couple of pages ago when I said the current generation classic(known as the 7th g) was different from the 80/120/160 classics(known as 6th and 6.5). I have built an opened up all of them. I was even victim when I bought a logic board from an ebay seller who said it was a 7th g board and it turned out to be a 6g board and it didn't work. So I feared that hard drive wouldn't work. I would like to build one with a 240gb ssd if someone other than alo can verify if one would really work.  I had a 5.5g with a 30gb ssd once and really appreciated the vast improvement in speed and the negligible improvement in sound. I would love to have a large capacity ssd with the interface of the 7g along with the ability to use with dacs approved for idevices.

Didn't see anyone with a 240 or 256GB SSD on this thread, but you could ask.

 

My 240GB HDD modded iPod arrived today, but I wasn't at home, will be posting an unboxing tomorrow ;)

Did you get it from that eBay seller elec-king Louis?

*subscribed*

 

Dying to see how it goes...

 

Another question that's killing me is, can it be Rockboxed using Emcore? Once I had done that with my 160GB I never looked back. :)

Ordered from 'kaijessy'.
He said 'original Apple earphones included'
If I'm an *ss and he ships fake earphones I could annoy him with Paypal wink.gif
But I obviously don't give a sh*t about the earphones :P

Edit: I'm going this afternoon to the post office, can't wait !

Nope. Not yet anyway.

The 7th generation isn't compatible with Rockbox.

You could ask the seller to make an older generation with a 240GB drive.

5.5G and lower can be rockboxed.
