iPod Question

7
Found 30th Jul 2009
I have a 5th generation 30gb iPod with a broken screen. I also have a 4g Photo iPod with a broken hard drive.

Does anyone know if I can put the 30gb hard drive into the 4g iPod?

Apple are very good and making sure you buy the new models rather than repairing or upgrading your current unit. Hence the fact you can't change things like batteries.

You can change the drives - but not in the way you want to do. The 4GB one uses a solid state microdrive, whereas the 30GB one uses a magnetic HDD.
