The 5th Generation iPods support drives up to 100GB using the ZIF adapter. The Toshiba, Samsung and Seagate drives all use the same drive cable. Hitachi drives require a special cable. You cannot replace a Hitachi drive in an iPod with a Toshiba, Seagate or Samsung, and you can't replace a Toshiba, Samsung or Seagate with a Hitachi without changing the cable too.

The nice thing about the 5th Gen iPods is they automatically partition and format the drives on installation. Previous generations - the drives must be pre-formatted.

Hi Mark,

Is this really true? I bought this new toshiba hd and my old one is hitachi, it canĀ“t be replaced without replancing the cable? and the cable comes out easily?

Thanks
