If your iPod Classic 160gb 6th Generation shows a Red-X support 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 iPod Classic 160gb 6th Generation 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 fully tested used Toshiba 160GB 6th Generation hard drive. The model is MK1626GCB which is the OEM drive used in the iPod Classic 160GB 6th Generation.
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 this iPod Classic 160gb hard drive.
Upgrading Hard Drive Capacity
The iPod Classic 160gb 6th Generation is the only iPod Classic model that uses a thicker dual-platter hard drive, and therefore has a thicker backplate. The only upgrade for this model is the Toshiba MK2431GAH 240GB HDD.
Downgrading is always an option too. The lowest replacement for any iPod Classic hard drive is the Toshiba MK3008GAL 30gb hard drive, which is the iPod Video 30gb OEM HDD. Most downgrades will single-platter which are compatible, however, you will need to fill the excess space inside the casing with some type of shim (cotton?). Also, the 160gb 6th Gen hard drive cable will need to be replaced with the wider style.
There are no software complications or changes that must be made when upgrading/downgrading your hard drive capacity.
Compatible Models: iPod Classic
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.
