My 32GB Flash IPod Mini - Page 31

post #451 of 465

while i haven't tried a 256gb sdxc i have used a 128 and it worked perfectly with the stock firmware, however i found that the adapter didn't work well with rockbox, batterylife went from 20hours to 8 :(.

 

i then bought a Komputerbay 128gb CFcard which would only boot once out of every 5 times. Just watch out for that as there's at least one other person with a similar Komputerbay CFcard booting issue. i guess the only thing it had going for it was that it was almost half the price of a more reputably branded one.

 

after a few years i gave up and bought a dx50. i really miss the form factor of the mini.. plus it was basically indestructible.

I found 64G Lexar SDXC card for $25 tonight, marked half off.  They didn't have any 128's....

My next task is to find the card adapter deal.  I have read a handful of posts that say these card adapters are flaky.

I'm not really wanting to have to keep taking the ipod apart for hokey issues. 

What card adapter is reliable or decent that anyone has used???

I got one off ebay that worked. but for 100% compatibility google Tarkan adapter. He sells a bunch of ipod adapters and the SD to CF one he sells definitely works.

I sent a note to Tarkan, to see what he/they have available for my mini...

@davidcotton the adaptor that tarkan sells on his site definitely works with 128gb sdxc cardz. Was what i was using in one of my minis.

Fair enough, I thought I read somewhere that some were too wide for the case.

I haven't received any response from the note I sent to tarkan, so I'm not sure which one to simply order from his site.

If he even lists one for my mini...

AFAIK, all the modern adapters are the same size as the original micro drive, so fit is not a problem. I'd expect the one from Tarkan's sire will work fine in a Mini as the compatibility issues are lower-level (IIRC, DMA support by the adapter).

 

FWIW, this is the one I use with my SD-Mini ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/221419687616?_trksid=p2060778.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT ). No issues whatsoever.

Speaking of iPod Mini's... Anybody got a spare top bezel and maybe one of the screws? I'm trying to restore a badly neglected 2nd gen and those are the last two pieces I need.

 

Thanks...

Where in the world are you? 

 

I might have some spares, the bezel won't be perfect condition though if that's important.

Bricktown, NJ USA... other side of the big pond. :)

 

Condition not a problem, though.

Ok, so, I went ahead and tried this out today.

It really was not very difficult at all, also pretty excited to actually put it to use.

What I did notice is, now when I copy files to it, they take a long time!
I selected maybe 100 songs to copy over, seemed like it too about 2 hrs +/-....

Thats what took the longest.

Only issue I had was when done, I had error 1429. 

Tried messing with it a few times, then realized I didn't have the SD card plugged in all the way. 

A little hot glue on the bottom cover since it won't stay on and I should be golden!

 

Thanks for everyone who helped, this was pretty cool and cheap upgrade.

Glad we could help. Enjoy the upgrade.
