Is the Samsung HS12YHA 5mm or 8mm?

Post by cortez_a » January 11th, 2012, 2:26 am

Hi people, I'm new to these boards and I'm hoping someone might be able to help me out. I'm looking to put a Samsung HS12YHA into a broken 80gb classic. Does anyone know if the drive is 5mm or 8mm or are there two versions? I'm replacing the housing of the ipod, but if I need the thicker back plate I'm just going to spend the extra $10 and get a 160gb drive. Thanks for any responses.

Extra Info:
Looking at the Hard Drive compatibility chart, it shows that this drive is a dual platter drive. Some sellers on ebay say it is 5mm while others say it is 8mm. Same goes for these boards some people have commented saying it is 5mm while others have said that it is 8mm. Did Samsung produce two versions of this drive? Or is one person right and the other wrong?

This drive model is a 5mm drive. There are other similar Samsung drives that are 8mm but this one is a 5mm for sure. Our chart doesnt show this but we will add it ASAP!
