“Apple’s current iPod Classic tops out at 120 gigabytes, which the company says is good for approximately 30,000 tunes,” Rik Fairlie reports for The New York Times. “But Rapid Repair, a firm that specializes in repairing iPods and other digital music devices, will soon enable you to upgrade your iPod to Toshiba’s new 240-gigabyte hard drive. And that should give you room for roughly 60,000 tracks.”
“The company will begin offering the upgrade in two to three weeks, when the brand-spanking-new drives arrive, says Aaron Vronko, service manager for Rapid Repair. Only fifth-generation iPod Video devices are compatible with the new 1.8-inch drive, however,” Fairlie reports. “The price for the new drive will be $295.”
Fairlie reports, “Rapid Repair will upgrade the drive for you at no cost, or you can crack open your iPod and install the drive yourself.”
