Can I transplant a hard drive from one iPod to another?
I have two exactly identical iPods (generation, model, hard drive, everything matches)
Apple iPod 5.5 g 80 GB
Order No. MA450LL/A
Model No. A1136
Toshiba MK8010GAH 80GB Hard drive
One iPod has a bad logic board but a viable hard drive with data that needs to be retrieved. The other has a malfunctioning hard drive but otherwise perfect Logic Board/SMT IC board.
My question is this: can I transplant the viable drive from the former onto the logic board of the latter and have a functioning iPod which, at the least, I could retrieve a file list of some sort?
Thank you so much for your time. :-)
Is this a good question?
