Answer to "Anyone tried SSD in 3rd Gen iPod?"I had no trouble doing this, but then again mine is Mac formatted. See my battery replacement. http://www.ifixit.com/Story/9597/New_Bat...! I formatted the card when I put it together and when I plugged it in I restored it. Are you noting which pin is pin 1? Considering that there are more pins on the adapter plug than on the cable? Does your version have pin 1 marked? The extra pins should fall on the left side.
