Yes

when you install the new drive

First put your iPod into disk mode. Then...

Open the disk utility, find your iPod (left hand side) and highlight it

Go to Tab Partition, click either Delete or Partition, if fails, skip this step and go to 3.

Go to Tab Erase , choose Volume Format as MAC OS Extended (Journaled), and click Erase.

and it should be ready to go, connect to iTunes and update the iPod
