Hi - I just ordered a 60gb HD for my 30gb 5th generation ipod. I've been told I need a new back plate (??) for the extra 2mm depth. Do I ALSO need a different battery, jack socket and hold switch or is it a straight changeover?

I also heard a rumour that in fact the 60gb drive might fit in the existing 30gb enclosure - anyone tried this?

Many thanks!
