iRiver iHP-140 with 128GB SSD - Page 6

post #76 of 128

Which of the following 128 GB SSD works with a iRiver iHP-1X0 player?

 

1.AMP 128GB SaberTooth Z4 1.8-inch IDE / PATA ZIF SSD Drive (model: N128G-PATAZIF-Z4)

 

2.AMP 128GB SaberTooth ZF 1.8" Turbo IDE / PATA ZIF SSD Drive (model: N128G-PATAZIF-ZF)

 

3.128GB Super Talent 1.8-Inch Masterdrive GF IDE ZIF Solid State Drive (model: FZM28GF18H)

 

4.Super Talent 1.8-Inch 128 GB DuraDrive ZT2 ZIF Solid State Drive (model: FZM28GW18P)

 

Each of them should fit inside the iHP-120 player but the compability using rockbox is currently unknown.

 

Note: There is a report that the 128GB KingSpec 1.8" IDE CF 50-pin SSD Solid State Disk does not behave quite well in a iRiver H320 (http://www.misticriver.com/iriver-h3xx-series-h320-h340/55041-h340-upgrade-128gb-ssd.html#post576861).

 

Thanks!

 

P.S. Please suggest a 128 GB SSD (not necessarily included on the list) which you have tested with success.

Hi,

 

I just got myself a Super Talent 128GB SSD with ZIF connector. There's a necessary adaptor board for SSD ZIF to 50pin IDE that was a bit of a gotcha for me, but I received the adapter board today, and after some testing yesterday, I can say that it works fine. I'll post more when I am able.

The 128GB Super Talent 1.8-Inch Masterdrive GF IDE ZIF SSD (model: FZM28GF18H) works with the iRiver iHP-120 and iHP-140 players using the official Rockbox bootloader.

 

For the Active Media 64GB SabertTooth Z4 1.8'' IDE/PATA ZIF SSD drive (model: N64G-PATAZIF-Z4), you need to use the non-official Rockbox bootloader version 7pre4.

 

As described in the previous post, you need a ZIF to 50 pin IDE adapter to connect the SSD to the player that you can get on eBay (do a search using the sentence: ZIF HDD,SDD to 1.8 inch TOSHIBA type converter; seller username: libmartcom).

Hi

 

So I'm screwing up courage to do surgery on my beloved (though sadly gathering dust now)Iriver 120.  I've located the kingspec ssd that works, I've found out about the necessary screwdriver to take it apart and I've even found out about the replacement battery (considering that the original battery STILL holds a 5 hour charge that's damn good going).

 

However there's one bit about the process that scares me more than anything and that's the rockbox part.


I was just wondering what the original firmware was of the iriver (do you have to have it on that anyway?)mine is currently (ha!) 1.17e.  Is that the original or was it earlier than that?

 

Any help gratefully received!

 

Cheers

I haven't touch my 120 for awhile now. When I installed Rockbox, I didn't have to erase the iRiver OS in there like the instructions says. So I was able to boot up to the original OS whenever I wanted to. I posted somewhere here how to do this but it was a while back.

Hi

 

Well for what it's worth I've got rockbox installed on my iriver (found both the usb cable and charger).  I've got version 6 installed but I read it's 7.xx that allows ssd.  Is that correct?

 

Quite looking forward to dusting the old girl off and giving it another spin.  Back in the day all I ever wanted was an updated version with bigger capacity (99 gig + nice)better ui (nothing I can do that but as I'm an albums man not necessary)and better battery life (nothing wrong with the original but it's been a while).

 

This has come at a perfect time for me as I'm becoming bored/disaffected with the apple scene (plus rockbox= no more sodding itunes always a plus :) ).

 

Cheers

Well just bought the kingspec 128 ssd, a torx t5 screwdriver and a battery.  Should get it for the weekend hopefully.

Hello,

 

I´m getting the  Kingspec 128GB SSD and a 128GB compact flash card. I will test both with the official Rockbox bootloader and the 7pre4 version. I will report my results (e.g. compability and speed) soon.

Thanks, I would like to know how it turns out! I have a boxed iriver240.

Where did you get the 128gig compact flash card from?

I will get the card probably by the end of next week. I don´t know if the card is compatible with Rockbox.

Don't know if the experience will be the same as the ipod mini but I've used that card this week.  Doesn't support rockbox, and I think the card is too slow for alac/flac files over certain sizes.  When I was using a peak 16 gig compact flash card all was well.

It is strange because the Komputerbay card is 2.3 fold faster than 266X cards which work properly with ALAC files in the iRiver player using Rockbox. I am worried that Rockbox doesn´t support this card. I will report my findings next week.

post #89 of 128

All I know is that when I was using the peak 16 gig card in the mini all was well.  When using the komputerbay one things got a bit unstable.  Gaps in alac files (mp3 played fine), ipod getting stuck on apple support.  It's why I've gone back to the iriver of all things.

post #90 of 128

Well I don't know about rockbox and iriver (wonder if it's worth getting an ide to compact flash adapter and trying it, hmm) but the ipod mini definetly doesn't like it.  Too unstable.  Tried manual and automatic installation but no go on either.  I did manage to get it to launch once but wouldn't run again.  It was that damn apple.com support that kept throwing things.  Oh well.

 

Oh and to get it back on track, tried opening my 120 today but didn't get very far!  The screw on the middle side by the hold switch appears stripped and ain't coming out :(

 

Cheers
