ideally i'd like a photo with a broken HD but anything to get my 3rd gen working again would be great, the headphone socket bit has broken, i tried repairing i but everything i do and patch up does not change it's complete lack of working,


so i either want the backmetal bit of a 3rd gen ipod (complete with working cable ect.

or

a complete ipod with a broken HD for a 4th gen ipod, either with color screen or without, as long as the only thing wrong is the HD, as i can just put the 20GB drive from my 3rd gen in their.

I have a 4th gen 20gb iPod without a hard drive and the 3rd gen backplate with audio jack. Let me know which one you want.

if it's a 20GB size one ( the 40's are too big, my HD would flap about)

then about 30 for the ipod sans HD 10 for the 3rd gen back plane

if you buy that or any other ipod type 1.8" HD and bring it to fruitstock, or whatever next macrumors event happens in london i'll put it in for you, i've cracked open repaired and upgraded many many ipods.

Thanks. Will look at that... it's the MK4006GAH which is the 4th gen model which are not sold brand-new anymore...

You're a student, right? I'd pay you in hard cash to source a reliable drive and repair my iPod for me. :)

I'd even consider a MK6006GAH for that yummy 60gb goodness.

I can do $35 shipped for the 3rd gen back plate and audio and for the 4th gen without the drive I can do $90. Both prices include shipping.

i can only just do $70 shipped for the full ipod or $20 bucks shipped for the back plate

and BV, sure i'll be happy to do that, though i'm in bristol till next thursday so if anything happens it happens after then.

edit: you can get them new here: http://www.span.com/catalog/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=ipod&osCsid=3621a026b7348d360d48fba536405526&search_in_description=1&x=0&y=0, as you can see a 60GB drive is near 100
