That's amazing, but its not really worth it yet for $294
was that an SSD disk?
Toshiba MK2431GAH 240GB 8-mm hard drive
Is it the HD that makes it cost so much or the work installing it?
wow, that's a lot of data for a lot of $$
I believe you can buy yourself a 250GB Tohisba drive and install it into an iPod classic, which I plan on doing.
Probably the fact that they can do it.
Maybe one other reason is because it's a small hard drive, in thickness, they have another 240GB hard drive like it but it's thicker.
I'd love to have a 240GB iPod...
Me needs for my classic now!
Does that drive fit in the slim classic, or just the thicker one?
it costs so much because it's new and it's the biggest capacity drive in that form factor. the cost doesn't include them installing it.
You cannot install it on a classic. Firmware doesn't see the 2 platters. So far it only works in 5G ipods.
The firmware for the body of the 160GB iPod classic does see two platters.
You guys mean to tell me that the board of a 160 6G is different than an 80 or 120?
Why does ifixit sell a catch-all board that they say works in all Classics?
Not sure about that, but I know the 160GB 6G iPod classic's Logic Board can read two platters, especially since the 160GB did have two platters in it.
You are correct, obviously. Sorry, I think I should have specified richardhunt's comments as the puzzling one, alone.
I seriously doubt the unverified claim that a 120GB Classic's board will not read a two-platter HDD.
Doesn't matter, I don't think a two platter hard drive can fit inside the body of the 120GB iPod classic.
