This is a 60gb hard drive replacement available as an upgrade for the iPod 4th Generation 40gb model. If your iPod 4th Generation 40gb shows a sad face error screen, it's likely the result of a failed hard drive. The hard drive may also need to be replaced if your iPod randomly skips songs or has sync errors.
A good way to tell if your hard drive has gone bad, is by putting the back of the iPod up to your ear on boot-up, and listening to the HDD spin up. A normal drive spins smooth, while a bad drive may click, scratch, or be very noisy. If you have the symptoms of a bad hard drive and can confirm the drive is not spinning smooth, there is a good chance the hard drive needs replacing.
This is a used genuine Toshiba MK6006GAH 60gb hard drive.
Over the years we have sorted through hundreds of manufacturers to build an offering of the highest quality parts on the market. Feel confident in your purchase knowing that you will get maximum longevity from the hard drive.
Hard Drive Upgrade
This is the only upgrade option available for the iPod 4th Generation 40gb model.
Downgrading to the 20gb or 30gb hard drives is also an option, however, these are thinner single-platter drives so the excess space will need to be filled (i.e. cotton pads) to prevent the hard drive from moving around inside the iPod.
Compatible Models: iPod 4th Generation (A1059)
Connector Type: Slide-in pin connector hard drive cable
Formatting: With the drive installed, connect your iPod to iTunes and click the restore button. The iPod software will automatically be installed onto the drive.
Data: You will lose all data from your iPod when replacing the hard drive.

'A great 60G hard drive for the price. However, I found that it would not fit in my fourth generation U2 special edition iPod.'
