Question about Apple 20gb Ipod Mp3 Player With Click Wheel System
Sounds like your HDD is on its last legs.
To fix. Back up all data to your computer using one of the many tools to copy music from the iPod to the computer.
Order The CF card adapter from ebay. This will allow you to use a compact flash card in place of the hard disk. They can be bought up to 64GB. It will not matter which one you use as the iPod will still recognise it.
Remove the back cover. (Plenty of guides on the net on how.) just be careful not to tear the battery ribbon cable when seperating the 2 halves.
Remove the old drive and recycle it please. Install the CF adapter where the hard drive was. Install the CF card into the adapter. Secure it the the adapter with a bit of sellotape so the card does not slide out during use.
Reinstall the back cover.
Plug the iPod into the computer.
Itunes will say that the ipod will need to be restored ---> Click yes.
Your done!! Fill it up with music again and enjoy the benefits of a lighter player that will last longer.
Hope this helps
