Can I put a different spec HDD in an iPod classic?
I'm convinced that the HDD in my 120GB iPod Classic has bitten the big one. It's making a modem-esque noise while clicking and I've gotten the circle red-x. All attempts to get it into disk mode to recover it have failed. My MacBook won't even recognize it.
Now, since I'll probably be pulling it apart soon, I was wondering if I can put a different kind of HDD in this thing (read: larger capacity or a SSD). I would prefer a solid state as it would be less susceptible to bouncing damage caused by jogging or mountain biking. The larger capacity would be welcome for reasons that need not be explained.
I know I can purchase the proper form factor HDD from several different sources but I wonder if anything other than what's in there now (capacity or construction-wise) would throw it into a tizzy.
Is this a good question?
