    my laptop has a toshiba 1.8" hard drive, and the ipods' hard drive is 1.8" and is toshiba as well. So I was just wondering if the hard drives are the same.

    well formatting type, the ipod HD's are formatted in FAT32 as opposed to NTFS, if you look on eBay you can see the actual hard drives they use...

    then it most likely will work mate. you could always e-mail apple to be 100%...you don't wanna be disassembling a working iPod not knowing for sure whether it will work or not.
