What is the largest hard drive I can upgrade to?
I have an iPod Video 5.5Gen 30GB device from 2006.
Over the last 12 months, my iPod has been starting to fill up, especially since I recently got into high quality Lossless music.
I now find myself having to remove music in order to add more, and that's just not what I want from my iPod.
I could upgrade to an iPod Classic, but I have quite a personal connection to this iPod as it was my first Apple product, and I prefer it to the Classic's design and software.
So, I'd like to upgrade my hard drive, but I'm struggling to find a tried and tested one that definitely works in my iPod. Since I have the thinner of the range (30GB) I'd like to keep it that way, which limits me to single platter drives of 5mm thickness.
Upgraded capacity wise, I'm looking at around 80-120GB, obviously, the bigger the better.
I have tried to research this as much as i can, but all I keep finding are uncertain, curious people like myself who don't want to make the purchase until they are sure about the drive. I have also seen a lot about a company called Apricorn, however the link that everyone provides for them, goes to a blank webpage, and there is no trace of the upgrade kit anywhere.
So, my criteria is:
5mm thickness (single platter)
iPod 5.5G compatible.
If anyone could recommend any drives to me, it would be greatly appreciated.
Is this a good question?
