Can you replace an 80GB hard drive with a 160 GB?

Since, for an ipod classic 80GB, it appears that no replacement 80GB hard drive is available, can you install a 160GB hard drive in place of a broken 80GB?

Thanks for the lead. Further research has confirmed that a Toshiba 120GB or 160GB can replace the 80GB drive in an ipod classic. Prices vary from 50 to over 200 dollars...


My pleasure! Keep shopping around - look on Craigslist for an old iPod classic with more GBs and use that drive! Bit more of a process but repair what you can whenever you can :)
