What can I replace it with? What options do I have?

You need to give much more information than this. Although I laughed when I read "went poop".

What kind of computer?

We're in the iPod forum. ;) It's probably his iPod mini's drive that went dead.

=) Ah, if only I had the ability to read.

Assuming he's right, you can either buy a new harddrive and install it yourself - which is tricky for someone that has never done anything like it before, or send it off to apple and have them replace it - which can be expensive.

Gotta love when your options suck. Maybe buy a new nano if you don't need much space?

Or just steal it. The stores don't have THAT good of a security system. I've walked out juggling powermacs. Twice.

...shutup Caleb.

or his 4Gen iPod (or his iPod Mini 4GB as your said )or he might not know that his Nano has a Flash drive, so he called it a 4GB Hard Drive


edit-Well i also learned to read, it say iPod Mini in his sig, so it not likly a Nano/4G iPod unless he forgot to put it in his sig,

As for opening a Mini, i have never done it, i have open a 4G, which was easyish because it has a metal back, while the Mini is "encased" in the Color Stuff, is it still AppleCared for? If it is call Apple up and get a new one

Ha! Maybe I need to learn to post a proper message.

I have a 20G, 4th Gen iPod that has a bad hard drive. Since I posted, I have found out that I CANT use a laptop HD in it. Replacement HD's are quite expensive for an iPod....stupid design flaw. I can put a new drive in, thats not a problem. I gave a guy $20 for the iPod and want to put a 15-20G HD in it, without spending enough to buy a new iPod.

There, that should clear it up a little.

There are sites that you can order replacement harddrives + the kit to do it. I'm not sure what they are, but google for them - you'll find a few. If you have ever opened up a computer to repair/replace things before, you shouldn't have a problem.
