My guess it should be installed in one of my diymods on Thursday. normal_smile%20.gif
Please test it with H2testw before putting in your iPod. It would be awesome if we could know the actual reading and writing speeds and also the real storage capacity.

Will do, but I am not sure if I have the patience to run the whole write+verify process. I guess it will take a long time to finish the entire 256GB. I may just run one minute to get an idea. :)

 

Personally I don't care about the write speed for these ipods. All I want is a working and hopefully reliable 256GB CF. Nonetheless, this CF card is claimed on paper to be able to read/write at 165MB/136MB per second. All I need is one tenth of that.

Hi,

I have just failed to install an SSD in my 120Gb iPod classic (6.5G).

I got the red X with each drive.

 

I have tried:

-Supertalent Duradrive ZT2 256Gb

-Mach Xtreme MX-NANO ZIF 240Gb

 

I think the 6.5G is harder to mod than the 5.5G. Any advice or compatible drive info are welcome.

Thank you

They are the closest you can find to the original Apple battery, good battery life and better battery meter readings.

Yes, they fit great. As a matter of fact I am using an original 7th gen iPod Classic battery in my 5.5th gen iPod video.

post #1798 of 4609

Alright guys.  I just joined Head-fi and I'm new to the forum community in general, so please bear with me.

 

I have come to the understanding that the 5.5 gen iPod video/classic is the easiest and most reliable unit to mod along with having the best sound quality (please correct me if I am wrong).  My ultimate goal is to be able to carry my music library in the palm of my hand.  So, what I'd like to know is what storage device (HDD, CF, SSD, etc) is the most reliable and cost effective to get at least 200gb of MP3 files (at 320K) onto my device with the least hassle after installation (like rebooting mSATA drives and stuff).  I'd like to use something other than a HDD preferably, because they seem to be the most susceptible to failure and damage, and they also use up the most battery (as far as I know). 

 

 

Thanks in advance for the help!  This also seems to be the best guide available on the web (which was mentioned before a while back in this thread), so great job guys and keep up the good work!

OK got the 256gb CF card, but Windows 7 laptop only recognizes it as 137GB. Any idea guys?
