brandon, , the drive you picked does notwork. The interface is wrong. Your model iPod uses a ATA-6 interface with pins, not a ZIF socket. I believe that a Toshiba MK8007GAH 80 GB would be a good choice for this iPod. Hope this helps, good luck.

brandon,

Thank you for accepting my answer. Best of luck to you.

oldturkey03,

I've upgraded mine to a Toshiba model MK8007GAH that works great. Now I'm thinking of trying a Kingspec 120GB ssd http://www.amazon.com/128GB-KingSpec-1-8... Update: I have installed the Kingspec 128GB 50-pin SSD into a 4G ipod and it works great so far.

I recommend just buying one from iFixit.
