Can I replace 20 gig with a 60 gig?
hard drive dead . will it accept a 60 instead of 20 gig?
Yes, but you need to replace a bunch of parts as well, you would need to replace the following parts with 40 or 60 gig versions, you can click on all the links to buy the parts:
1) rear panel
(I'm not quite sure all of these are correct, if someone else could verify that would be great, upgrading a 5th gen is a common enough procedure, but this is a bit of an older gen)
My 20gb 4th Gen iDie Hard Color, model A1099, lost his mind after I dropped it from 2+mtr high on a concrete floor. I ordered a:
64GB KingSpec 1.8-inch IDE CF 50-pin SSD Solid State Disk (MLC)
to replace the original KIA 20gb HDD. Within 24hrs I received the 64gb KingSpec SSD.
I used iFixit's "iPod 4th Generation or Photo Hard Drive Replacement" as my DIY guide.
A good thing to know is that the 64gb KingSpec SSD has the same size as the original 20gb HDD so you don't have to buy a 40/60gb thick rear panel, 40/60gb headphone jack or bracket. Connecting the KingSpec SSD is exactly the same as connecting a HDD
When I was done I attached the iMod to my Laptop. Right after that I got a "iPod Firewire AC Charger" logo on my iMod screen. When I attached it to the AC Charger the "iPod Firewire AC Charger" logo disappeared and the "battery is fully charged" logo appeared. Right after that I connected my iMod again to my laptop. Because iTunes recognized the iMod it started itself up. After I choose "Restore iPod" in iTunes my iMod was within one minute fully functional again. Time will tell if it became a "iDie Harder" ;-)
