    Well you can either buy one and replace it yourself, or have it done by someone else that you can trust.

    The hardest part of servicing an iPod is splitting the case halves. If you think you can do this, I would strongly recommend locating a replacement drive, and replace it yourself.

    This site has good directions on how to replace the drive yourself.

    The HDD itself is rather expensive you are better off getting a new iPod. I believe it's the labor(time it takes for a person to exchange old to new) that will cost around $60.
