Yes, if you look at the parts page, this specs are the same, but if you still want a larger drive, get a 120 gig one here.

- don't know if it matters, but the 30GB rotates faster than the 120GB. My guess is that your 120GB is damaged and you have an old 30GB which you want to use instead of buying a replacement(?). If it was me, I'd assume it wouldn't damage anything even if it doesn't work, and just try. But with the risk of being wrong of course.
