Which hard drives work for an 7th gen iPod classic?
I'll just write some information about my situation.
I just bought a broken iPod 160GB 7th generation which was sold as haven a defective hard drive. The iPod was still able to boot correctly before I opened it up.
Then I opened up my 120GB (6.5 gen) and tried connecting that to the 7th gen iPod. I could run diagnostic tool or boot into drive mode however every time I tried booting it up normally it would just restart after being stuck for a while on the apple logo.
And now if I connect the 160GB drive back to the 7th gen iPod it has the same problem.
So I'm wondering if it is because maybe I broke something while opening it or if the 120GB isn't good enough for a 7th gen iPod.
The reason I'm asking this is because I would like to buy a 240GB drive for the 7th gen iPod (since I know the 6.5 won't support it) but I also don't want to buy the expensive drive to discover the iPod is simply broken.
Edit: just looked at the logic board and it looks burned out so I guess I found my answer.
