Title:

Making custom THIN, SSD, 20k song capacity Gen 5.5 iPod?

Text:

Hello,

I’d like a Gen 5.5 (enhanced) iPod Classic/Video.  I have a 6th gen, and know it sounds bad compared to my original 4th gen. That said, the 6th gen is a bit thinner than the thick 5th gen versions. Sadly, you have to get the thick version to get a higher song capacity (20k instead of the 7.5k you can have on the thin 30gb version).

So, can I get a thick 80gb 5th gen enhanced, change the HDD for the SSD adapter, get a thin back plate and battery, and be good to go?
