It can be done. I have done it several times. What they dont tell you is that you have to spend more money to do this and I spent enough on this ipod to start with. I finally sold this to someone else. I had a friend who had one for a week and it just quit. I have read about battery failure and etc. I got rid of it. Not worth all the trouble and money and then I had a problem seeing the picture out doors during the day. Just not worth it to me. Maybe to others.
