Can upgrade from 30gb to 160gb?

Can upgrade from 30gb to 160gb?

I know it is possible to upgrade my ipod video 5th generation from 30gb to 80gb. But, Can I upgrade it to a large HD than 80GB? Something like 120gb or 160gb?

ANSWERS:

jalandiso, yes you can. "The 5th gen Classic drive is interchangeable but beware that the 30GB use a slim drive. It's a 5mm drive, there are also 8mm drives out there. So what you need to look out for is the thickness of the drive. If you get a thicker drive you will require a deeper rear panel, a new head phone jack since the cable has to be longer as well as a new battery for the same reason You will also need the rubber bumpers from the bigger drive as well. There is a 240GB drive out that will fit your iPod. read more about that on here. The 160GB are available on ebay for around $80. Always get a new HDD cable as well. Use this guide to give you an idea of how to do it. Hope this helps, good luck.
