which hard drive can i replace my ipod classic's hard drive with?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So my 80 gb ipod classic is running out of space and i really need my fat 160gb ipod back up and running again. I dropped it and im guessing i broke the hdd because it keeps telling me to restore it even though i tried restoring it a couple of times already. I saw a hard drive from toshiba in amazon that was a 240gb hdd and i was wondering if it was i could use that rather than getting another 160gb hdd since my music library is growing rapidly. http://www.amazon.com/Toshiba-240GB-MK2431GAH-Hard-Drive/dp/B009A6PT9M/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top thats the hdd that i found in amazon. I also heard that people who used it had to buy a thicker back cover and i was wondering if the fat ipod classic needed it too if i were to get that hdd.

There are tons of plastic tools they sell on ebay. Why dont you just do the flashmod and get rid of the hard drive? http://www.tarkan.info/20070804/tutorials/modding/ipod-video-compact-flash-mod/all/1

 

I did this mod and never looked back, maybe 10 mins or so but you want to take your time. I did it no problem and I'm not super mechanicaly inclined.
