Solid State Drive In ipod 4th Gen/Color/Photo?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I am  currently working on a project of possibly putting a ssd inside of a Ipod color that I've recently acquired. I'm looking at the drive in the link and it says that the drive is 50 pin and it will fit the 4g color/photo. Has anyone else looked into this upgrade? If so is this a direct swap or is an adapter required. Trying to make sure before I possibly drop $350. Please see link which is just a reference since this drive can be had at a much cheaper price from other vendors

You should do a search, you will be surprised by what you will find. For example: http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/455467/ssd-on-an-ipod

I've reread that thread that I've even posted in, still after going through it I did not see a post that addresses the 4th gen Ipod color/photo. The pin structure on the photo is different than the 5th gen video this is why I'm trying to find out if the 50 pin king spec card is a direct plug in or will I need an adapter. I've done quite a bit of reading on the internet but have not found anything conclusive. So if anyone has a 4th gen with maybe one of rhe lesser cards than the 128gb card please kindly post as to whether or not it was a direct plug in or it required an adapter. Now if I missed something in reading the old threadf that I was linked to please forgive me.

Did you get this figured out? I'd like to put either an SSD or Flash card into my iPod photo. Curious as to what you finally did.
