    I was wondering if anybody knew where I could get a larger hard drive for my 5th gen iPod video. I have the 30GB version and I wanted to replace the hard drive with something bigger. The less expensive the better.

    Any info would be great. Thanks!

    Not far from Boston, MA.
    I believe the retail cost of a new ipod would be less than the single unit cost for a replacement disk... which probably wouldn't work in any case.

    In other words, just get a new iPod.

    New 60Gb hard drive will run you about $65 and a thicker back cover (to accommodate larger HDD) will run you about $16.
    Both of these you'll find at eBay.
