Here's a link to a 20 GB ipod HD for $93<br><br>http://www.ewiz.com/detail.php?p=T20MK2004L&c=pw<br><br>There's an article that suggests that replacing a 3G or newer HD is OK, but that an older iPod needs a specially formatted HD. Use Google to find MacUser in the UK, free registration, do a search on the Ipod. Here's a quote:<br><br>"Choosing a replacement hard disk is a tricky business. Apple uses modified Toshiba drives in its iPods and so using a generic replacement will not work in a FireWire iPod. The simple answer is to buy a replacement taken from an old iPod, with prices starting at around £90 for a 20GB model.<br><br>However, if you have got a third- or fourth-generation iPod (the ones with the docking cradle) and a Mac running Mac OS X 10.3.4 with USB 2 ports, you can use any replacement hard disk and connect to your Mac using USB 2. It still will not work over FireWire but that's a small loss."<br><br><br><br>
I know of someone that has used a 40 GB in a 1st gen iPod - they just used carbon copy cloner to dump on to an external drive then back to the upgraded iPod.... but you are right with the special format.<br><br><br>WWW.ADZOOX.COM & www.JACKWHISPERS.COM

Why would one need to use CCC? Is that to save any special iPod software on the drive, or just to back up whatever one would have saved on there?<br><br><br><br>[color:red]5.19.05 - The 'Jedi Slaughter' tour begins!</font color=red>
It's because the first couple megs on the drive are write blocked so you need the info from that part of the partition.<br><br>The 1st gen were also Mac Formatted only.<br><br>Those two bits are just guesses though.<br><br>Googling all of this would probably provide some good backup and I think it's discussed on ipodlounge<br><br>WWW.ADZOOX.COM & www.JACKWHISPERS.COM

Ah- gotcha...<br><br>So swapping in a new drive to a 3G shouldn't provide any such problems, should it? I would think the iPod Software updater would take care of any formatting problems, regardless of the generation... You know, just pop in the new HD, connect to Mac, run the iPod SU - iPod's good to go, right?<br><br><br><br>[color:red]5.19.05 - The 'Jedi Slaughter' tour begins!</font color=red>
