Here's a twist:

The connectors are interchangeable between all Video iPods and the thin (80, 120, thin 160 GB) Classics.

HOWEVER, the thick 160 GB Classic uses a different cable and connector (it's still a ZIF connector, but half the size).

Compare the cables for Video/thin Classic and thick Classic iPods to see the difference.

But Can a thin be used in place of thick?

according to the right statement made the thin is twice the size, so the answer should be no.
