    Ok, I have my mates iPod open and his 20GB 4G clickwheel's hard drive is totally gone - can you put a 10GB 3G drive in it? We just want to do it temporarily to see if it'll work - help!

    Thanks everyone....

    Just curious, why don't you buy a new harddrive to replace it?

    I opened my iPod before and I remember it being some Toshiba 1.8" drive.

    Yeah, it looked the same, so we went for it....:D

    He hasn't got £70 for a new drive at the moment, and we all use our iPods a lot at college to take files back and forward, so he was a bit desperate. My boyfriend had a broken 10 GB 3G (broken motherboard) so he let us use the hard drive out of that. He's a good egg, my bloke. :)

    Wow! that's what I was thinking!

    Rock on!

    It took me 2 hours to take apart an iBook, and I'm expecting it'll take about 40 minutes for me to perform surgery on my iPod when the battery replacement fairy comes.
