Hey guys. I have a 160GB Ipod Classic Model A1238 (late 2009 "thin" version). My music collection has recently ballooned to just over 200GB, so I'm now tasked with the chore of finding over 40GB of music to NOT include when I update the Ipod. This is really unfortunate, since I use it almost exclusively for playback in the car, where I would like to have the entire collection.

Most car stereos (including mine) have a 10,000 file limit for standalone external hard drives, so that's not an option. Apple also doesn't appear to have any plans for releasing a larger Ipod Classic. This means my only option (other than just dealing with it) would be to custom-install a larger hard drive myself.

I've tried searching the web for current 1.8" hard drives compatible with my model, but I'm really not having any luck. Has anyone performed this procedure, or can you point me somewhere I can find the information on compatible hard drives and such??

i understand the op's pain..the world has gone the way of the idevice and if you go through the aggrevating trouble of re-installing your cd liberary in itunes lossess format, you then want/need a way to play back over a terabyte of music, the icloud only stores compressed files, google play same, etc... i think maybe the best way is to use a ipod touch going through your phones internet connection to a home baised media server...big pita tho and no guarntee on the connection working when you want/need it too..the ipod classic hs the easiest to use interface of any current media player, every current decent aftermarket head unit has a way to opperate an ipod classic, the good ones have built in dac's to bypass the crappy ipod headphone jack output..i have heard of a 500gb hd in a 5th gen ipod cassic with rock box as a working unit and itunes still being the liberary...i am hoping that is a real solution..as 3 of those would work for me. i am still angwey that the few cds i have put into itunes over the years (190 gb compressed) now have to be re eterend into itues to become lossless....i need to hire a monkey to put cds into my computer... fwiw, i am wondering what solution the op found.
