    I had my hardrive go bad in my I-Book. I bought a replacement.

    Does anybody have instructions or can point be to place to see the steps to do it my self?

    thanks

    I think the OP was talking about his iBook not iPod but you did point him in the right direction. ifixit is great place to get instructions

    Be prepared. I just yanked a HD out of a G3 (snow) iBook this weekend following the ifixit guide. The guide is perfect, but the process is a b!tch. Especially compared to the powerbooks I've worked on (ti and alum). You essentially have to take apart the entire bottom casing of the iBook. Just keep an eye on which screws came from where. I'm sure I put one or two in the wrong places and I had a couple leftover :D (not a biggie since the ibook was dead anyway).
