How to replace old HD

hi- I  want  to  upgrade  the  hard  drives  of  some  4th  generation  ipods  I  have  of  different  Gb's.I've  seen  some  information  on  the  web  about  it  which  is  not  clear.I  want  to  upgrade  them  with  an  Micro SD Universal Flash TF Memory Cards HC Class 10   and  want  to  use  CF Compact Flash Card To 1.8" ZIF/CE HDD Adapter For iPod 5G 6G Toshiba CE Video  and  than  put  the  micro  cards  in  an  sd  adaptor  card  and  place  this  in  a  Extreme CF CompactFlash Card Adapter SD SDXC SDHC WIFI SD Type I CF up to 128GB.  The  way  I  think  I  understand  it  is  if  it  is  going  in  a  30gb  ipod-than  the  number  of  partitions  should  be  along  the  lines  of  30GB  each?  I  have  both    a  mac  and  a  pc-and  am  unsure  the  way  I  would  need  to  formatt  the  new  micro  card-like  mac  journelled  etc  as  the  info  I  have  read  is  confusing  about  this?  I  am  also  not  sure  if  the  above  micro  card  would  only  work  with  a  flash (usa) type  adaptor  which  are  a  lot  more  expensive? I  just  wondered  if  you  could  give  me  some  advice  about  this  as  the  information  on  the  web  is  very  unclear/confusing  how  to  do  it? thanks

i realise the flash card adaptor I have may only go up to 128gb as that is what it says on the advert i geuss anything bigger than that and i would need the more expensive flash thing which I have seen advertised from the U S of A!

Both a CF card and microSD card will work. The storage size (to an extent) should not matter, and you do not need to partition the storage ahead of time. If you need more help, have a look at this helpful guide.
