I just made sure that the battery ribbon connections were properly aligned and firmly secured.  The clip are plastic and failed to secure the ribbon during the first attempts.

This Amp based on MAX97220, not UDA1380. UDA1380 - DAC/ADC/headamp in Iriver 120/140/320/340.

 I haven't made any attempt of measuring time since I installed 256GB mSATA, a couple of weeks back.   Battery Life maybe 4-5 hours with the Intruder a for the HD600 or LCD3 at low to mid-volume level and mid or high gain setting.  I suspect much longer runtime (maybe 6-8 hours) with just an IEM and ad hour or two more with the Intruder.  Again it's all estimates.  Definitely, never had to charge the ipod more than twice for the past weeks, for sure.

When I place the SSD + ZIF adapter in the iPod, it shows the red cross for both FAT32 and exFAT file systems.
My iPod is not recognized by windows or iTunes, so there is no way to restore it.

Diagnostic mode indicates there is a problem with the HDD.

 

Would there be a difference between the 32GB and 256GB mSATA Crucial SSD causing it not to work?
Any other ideas that I can try?
Maybe I got a broken mSATA - ZIF adapter, but is there a way to test this?

Thanks in advance for your help,
Yves

When it did not work on my first attempt, I also thought that problem was the ZIF Adapter or mSATA.  I did a few attempts doing best effort to get the tiny ribbon (hdd connector) aligned, properly inserted, and snuggly connected (via clip).  Finally on the 3rd attempt, It worked. I also recall having problems related to the battery being empty and thought that I needed to replace the battery.  It turned-out that the ribbon for the battery (there are 2 ribbons) loosened.  These were the only issues I recall, and am quite happy to say that for the past weeks, I did not experience any other problem.  Oh yeah, with a large capacity mSATA, it is always good to upload music files in small batches of maybe 10GB.  I tried to upload all my music files at one go (7000 songs) and recall that it was taking hours to upload using a mac mini with an SSD, as well.  The Ipod back cover was warm, and did not complete the upload, in one go. Best to upload in smaller batches.  I don't have a 7G to test and confirm that the mSATA will work just fine. Sincerely wish you can get your mSATA to work with your 7G.

If you do get it working on the 7th gen, could you post results here please :)

Been trying to get my head around the information that's been posted so far. I have a 5.5G 80GB, a 6G 120GB and a 7G 160GB.

 

From what I have read I can upgrade the 5.5G with a 128GB SuperTalent SSD. Would it be a direct replacement without any adapters? Can I fit a 30GB back instead of the 80GB back since it's thinner? What advantage is there to using a CF/ZIF adapter combo?

 

Apart from the Toshiba 240GB hard drive, what upgrades are available (confirmed working) on the 6.5/7G?

 

It would be very useful if someone created an upgrade matrix. bigsmile_face.gif

1. Yes. This is what I have.

2. Yes, but you will need to replace some stock components in your 80 GB with some from the 30 GB -- eg, the headphone jack. On the whole, the 80 GB case is not significantly larger, and you get to use a larger battery. Might as well stick with it.

3. Small compact flash cards are cheaper than small PATA drives. There doesn't seem to be much advantage for larger sizes -- for sizes over 128 GB, it looks more economical to use a ZIF/SATA adaptor and use a SATA drive instead.

Thanks guys, so I'll stick with the 80GB back since I want the bigger battery. A 128GB CF/ZIF adapter will cost me £102, a 128GB SSD will cost me £125. Since it is a small difference, cost aside what would you go for?

post #1019 of 3944

From what I gather you can stick a 256 crucial ssd msata drive with adapter (you'll have to order that from amazon.com or ebay) the 6g I don't think you can do much with and the 7g you can stick a 240 hard drive in with a kit ordered from ebay (which is what I plan to do eventually).  Think that's about right :)

 

Cheers

that 5.5G iPod can be updated to any of the working drives. It can even do the 256gb mSATA with adapter combo.
