    I have an old iPod 4th generation 20gb Click Wheel that needs a new hard drive. I was wondering if I could replace it with a 30gb, or even a 40gb hard drive? Or are they slightly thicker and won't work in the 20gb body?

    30gb should be the same thickness, 40gb will require the thicker backplate.

    You can also get an IDE to CF adapter and put a compact flash card or SD card in it for even more space. I built one with a 64GB CF card in it, and it was super snappy.
