Replacing HD on Ipod

Post by jsteves » April 11th, 2010, 3:44 pm

I am going to replace the HD on my 80gb Ipod Classic. The hard drive in my Ipod now is a Toshiba MK8022GAA, I am wondering if I can replace that with a Toshiba MK8010GAH without needing to replace any other parts. Thanks.

If you replace the 8022 drive with the 8010GAH, you will need to do a part changes. This is due to the fact that the MK8010GAH is a thicker drive (8MM) than the original drive (the MK8022GAA is only 5MM thick). You would need to replace the back panel, battery, and optionally, the headphone jack for a nice secure fitting.
