Is this the part I need?

-Fix music skipping
If your iPod Photo 30gb shows a sad face 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 Photo 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 Toshiba 30gb hard drive. The model is MK3006GAL which is the OEM drive used in the iPod Photo 30gb.
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 your replacement hard drive.
Hard Drive Upgrade
There are no hard drive upgrades available for this model. The 40gb and 60gb models used a dual-platter hard drive and therefore had a thicker backplate to accommodate the drive. Thus, the 40gb and 60gb hard drives are not an upgrade option.
Downgrading to the 20gb hard drive is an option.
Compatible Models: iPod Photo (A1099)
Connector Type: Slide-in pin connector hard drive cable
Formatting: With the replacement 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 hard drive upgrade for a fourth generation U2 special edition iPod. 10 more gigs than the original and worked as soon as I installed it. Customer service was great. Thank you, Gadget Menders.'
