Will a 5th gen iPod Video Click Wheel work with an iPod Classic?

I have replaced the click wheel to my 7th gen 160GB iPod Classic before and am still not convinced that it works as well as the click wheel on my previous iPod Video 5th Gen 60GB.

Does anyone know if I were to buy a replacement click wheel for the 5th gen iPod Video, if it would work if I were to use it as a replacement click wheel for my iPod Classic 7th Gen, 160GB?

@kduke no it does not. Tried it before and failed ;-). Get a proper replacement

Darn. I bought a replacement last year off eBay, which worked better, but every time I use my old iPod Video, I find that the click wheel works WAY better than the classic.

Is there a specific brand or type of click wheel replacement that is better than the others?


Not really. I do agree with you about the click wheel. I just think the 5th gen is a better iPod altogether :-)
