If your iPod Video 80GB 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 Video 80GB 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 80GB hard drive. The model is MK8010GAH which is the OEM drive used in the iPod Video 80GB.

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 iPod Video 80GB hard drive!

Hard Drive Upgrade

The hard drive for the iPod Video 80GB model CANNOT be upgraded due to compatibility issues with the motherboards on-board memory.

Downgrading is always an option. One option is the Toshiba MK6008GAH 60GB hard drive. Like the 80GB, the 60GB HDD is also a dual-platter drive, which came stock in the iPod Video 60GB.

The lowest replacement for any iPod Video hard drive is the Toshiba MK3008GAL 30gb hard drive, which is the iPod Video 30gb OEM HDD. The downgrade will be a single-platter hard drive which is compatible, however, you will need to fill the excess space inside the casing with some type of shim (cotton?).
