Official Ipod Video / Classic 5g+5.5g+6g+6.5g+7g SSD Mod thread - Page 9

post #121 of 3420

I don't know about the HDD from the classic to the video but the max SSD is 256gb for the thin ipod video (if you read this thread you'd know).

Just go to superbiiz and search for 1.8' ssd and you'll find all the capacity. I just ordered one, waiting for it to come.

So what is the maximum capacity of a HDD that you can push into the iPod 5.5th slim?

I live in the UK so do you know whether there is any tax on item ship from superbiiz?

post #123 of 3420

I have successfully installed the 128GB SSD on my 5th gen iPod but every once in a while there would be a hick up in the music, like it would stop for a second and resume. Is this normal? I'm pretty sure that I didn't do anything wrong while installing and everything is connected fine. What could I do to fix this? I would think that using and SSD would not allow this type of thing to happen even when playing lossless files.

256GB is the biggest. As for tax, that depends on the custom of your country, has nothing to do with superbiiz.

It is not normal that the music pauses and resumes. I know because it happened to me at first and not long after, the drive failed. I had to send it back to Super Talent and they sent me a new one.

My 128GB Super Talent arrived yesterday. I hope to install it tomorrow.

If the host device doesn't support TRIM a SSD's performance might degrade over time: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TRIM

 

Newer SSD drives do this operation on their own but also decrease the SSD's life due to increased writes...

 

I want to go SSD but I also want to know that it will last...

Hmmm....., Perhaps not so good ! I'm interested in doing this also, but only when there is enough data confirming that this is a reliable upgrade. That data does'nt appear to be there yet.

I haven't had a chance to finish it yet, I ran into a problem with my Ipod classic logic board. I have to get another one. Been a little busy with some other things so kinda on the back burner. I will be finishing it shortly as I am going to California next month and want to see how the battery holds up on the plane. Will update everyone when I get it done.

So luck to find this post here!

 

Recently, I am planning to upgrade my iPod video 5th 30G into SSD.

But really could not find too much information from the web.

 

post #133 of 3420

Also I would like to ask if my IPOD is 5th Generation, is it only support up to 64G?

Thanks for help!

post #134 of 3420

If you want 64gb you have two options. You can do a compact flash card mod using one of tarkan's adapters(25$) and a compact flash card going for about 100$ to 150$. Or you could just get an ssd at that size and they run about 150$ and up. The 128gb ssd might be around the same price.

I just purchased a 120gb Samsung HS12YHA hard drive for my 5.5gen iPod Video (30 gig, slim). Despite reading from numerous sources that it is compatible with the iPod Video, I couldn't get the stock hard drive connector to work.

 

Since I couldn't return the drive, I popped open my 80gb iPod classic and switched the hard drive connector to my iPod Video. I can get the iPod to recognize the drive (it spins up just fine) in Diagnostic mode. But when I force it into disk mode, neither my computer nor iTunes will recognize it.

 

Anyone know a solution? I really want to get this to work so that I can enjoy 120 gigs of Rockboxed FLAC goodness. smily_headphones1.gif
