Rating: 5/5 You saved my old IPOP March 22, 2018 My old IPOP classic 160GB 6th generation hard drive failed when I dropped it . I was looking to find replacement when I bump into this product. I replaced my iPod's HDD with a 128GB Patriot SDXC storage card. I had some issues at first but with the help of the great Customer support 'Chas' I was able to reload the Apple Software on the IPOD an I am now back enjoying my music. We spend almost 45 min trying to resolve and they never quit. It was at the end the flat cable that was not properly seated. Nothing to do with the product. Thank you for your assistance. I will certainly advertise your product if I hear someone in the same situation. Gilbert

I would recommend this item to a friend! Customer Videos:
