Sorry no idea. I kind regret going with the cheaper shipping (HK Post). The tracking status has not changed after almost 10 days. I have a bad feeling this damn card will take long time to get here.

While I am waiting for my 256GB CF card, I made a new LOD with a husky cable look. It's my favorite cable.

I did it, but it was not the problem, because it still keeps doing the same thing.

I've recently installed kubuntu in my last Windows machine, so I don't have any way to test in the H2testw.

Anyway, I got tired doing tests and yesterday I bought a 32gb 266x CF card in amazon... it is "komputerbay" brand, we'll see if it works...

I have that CF card too bought a yr ago from Amazon. It works and no issues. I still don't understand why the Komputerbay CF cards are sold much cheaper than other CF cards, unless they are less reliable. Only time will tell.

 

One time I bought a 128GB Lexar CF card from Amazon but that card didn't work with the Tarkan. Then I put it on ebay for bid and sold it for a profit enough to cover another used 64GB CF card I bought from Amazon. That turned out be my all-time best purchase from Amazon. LOL.

I just successfully upgraded a 30GB iPod Video Fifth Generation ("5G") with a 240GB mSATA SSD, new battery. Everything worked out of the box, I did not need the mSata to 2.5" adaptor at all (it hasn't even come in the mail yet, I couldn't wait!)

 

Battery: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0030LSFQW/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

SSD: http://www.amazon.com/MyDigitalSSD-Bullet-Proof-mSATA-Solid/dp/B00B3X73EE/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1388473638&sr=1-2&keywords=240GB+msata

 

Adaptor: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009BA5JU6/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

I'm very happy.

So how did the ssd fit in without the adaptor?  Just straight swop out from the hard drive?

He used the mSATA to zif adapter, he refers in his post about the 2.5mm adapter which is obviously not needed.

Let us know how the battery performs and whether you have experienced overheat with the ipod.

My 256GB CF card is coming sooner than I thought .....

 

Tracking Status:

2013-12-31 17:36, Processed through USPS Sort Facility

 

My guess it should be installed in one of my diymods on Thursday. :normal_smile :

Nice.  Was tempted by a sony but may hold off to see how this goes instead.  Really didn't fancy batch converting a load of m4b files to mp3 as it was!

About 20mb I think.

Happy New Year everyone!

If you are not happy with your ipod, then go for the Sony or something else regardless how this card does. If I am not happy with these diymods, I wouldn't bother to get a 256GB card.

I doubt the ipod can write at 20mb/s regardless of the card. Maybe half of that. I could be wrong.

For me it's more about storage than ultimate sound quality.  I listen to audiobooks as well as music whilst at work.  So I currently use a clip plus for music and a classic for the books.  Getting fed up of carrying two devices around so if I can get something with enough storage to carry the books and music around, so much the better.
