Is it possible to install a bigger HD into an 30gb iPod?
I'd like to know if it's possible to upgrade my iPod's HD once that i'll have to substitute it anyway.
So, I want to know if I can install a 80gb (for example) HD into my old 30gb iPod video (5th generation). In that case, is it possible to upgrade the battery to, or the batery for the 80gb iPod is to big?
Why is necessary to change the headphone jack and de rear panel to?
By the way, i'm sorry for my poor english, but i'm from Brazil
Thanks for your patience!
Yes, you can upgrade to the 80 GB hard drive. You just need a few other parts also:
Rubber Bumpers <---forgot about those the first time through
That is all you need to make the swap.
You must replace the Rear Panel because the 80 GB drive is thicker than the 30 GB and your 30 GB rear panel won't fit over the 80 GB drive. Also, this is the same reason you need the 80 GB headphone jack. It has a longer cable to fit around the thicker 80 GB hard drive. This applies to the battery as well.
