Is it possible to install a 160gb thick harddisk in 7g iPod?
Recently my ipod classic 160gb HDD died.
I obtained a new hdd, but made the mistake that I ordered a 160gb 'thick' HDD for a 6g ipod, and I have a 160gb 7g 'thin' Ipod classic.
When I successfully disassembled (great manual) my ipod I noticed that the drive was to thick. Since the coust of a new HDD is higher than a rear cover + cable I have the following question:
- Does the rear panel of a 160gb 6g 'thick' ipod fit onto the metal framework and front panel of a 7g ipod? (ie in the position of the clips)
- Is the connection of the hard drive cable to the motherboard of the 6g and 7g the same?
Many thanks in advance!
Is this a good question?
