    I originally posted this on www.iLounge.com with no avail, maybe you guys can help

    Alright, heres whats wrong...

    I currently have a 3rd gen 15 gig ipod that I love to death, and a 4th Gen 20gig with something wrong with the motherboard.

    Recently my 3rd gen has been acting up though. I'll get maybe 4 hours battery life and it takes a long time to update the songs from my pc over either firewire or usb 2.0.

    Would it be possible to put the battery from the 4th gen into my gen 3? and maybe the 20gig harddrive to fix my problem of slow updating songs?

    Is it bad to use a higher gen battery in my lower gen iPod? Would the harddrive work in it?

    Many thanks

    Well, I fix Ipods, and have tons and tons of ipods on my desk right now in pieces. Anyway, the hdd as well as the battery will work. You just have to make sure the hdd isn't dual platter (in the 4th gen only 40gb and 60gbs and in the 5th gen only 60 and 80gbs are dual platter) so that it will fit.

    just remember, to take out the battery, there are a lot of tiny screws in that thing keeping the mobo down, make sure you get them all.

    or jsut take it to the apple store. they barely ever deny you if you take it in. seriosuly. they said no to some guy, and he made HUGEe publicity, so they replace almost anything that has happened to them even if your warretny is out. they dont even check.
