    Are you asking to dismantle the iPod photo and video and swap screens? I dont think that is possible. Even if you could you would have display problems most likely. Also, the specs are different for both of them.

    Or are you asking about a protective film that works on the Pod photo and asking if it would work on the video. It would work but it wouldn't cover the entire screen area.

    Hope that helps

    Have you taken an iPod apart before? For all but the most apt hardware gurus, I'd say this is a no.

    You do know that those iPods have completely different size and resolution screens, right?

    I would beat someone for tossing it in a box, let alone a box with heavy stuff...
