Battery life is not very good due to the SDXC to CF adaptor but that will improve if using a CF card.Still got the biggest battery for mini 1500 mha, now need a bigger card and the caps mod,link anyone?

Could you put a figure on what sort of hours you get out of the sdxc combo please?

Were your issues with the full-sized SSD track skipping power related? I plan to use this setup in a car, so power won't be an issue. I have the latest (7th?) iPod Classic.

 

BTW I'm new to this; what's a CF and SDXC? Rockbox with caps?


CF= Compact Flash Card.  Pretty much obsolete type of card.  More commonly found in Cameras.  Ipod minis have the same connection which means you can just swop out the 4gig microdrive and swop in a cf card instead.  Fun fact.  Back in the day when the mini was first introduced people were buying the mini to strip it of it's 4 gig microdrive to use in cameras of the time as it was a cheaper way of getting the drive!


SDXC - SD type of card.  Until now much higher storage available for less.  To use in ipods you'll need an adapter which affects battery life.  See http://www.tarkan.info/20121226/tutorials/ipod-and-sdhc-sdxc-cards for more.

 

Caps= Capacitors.  Alters the type of sound with the different caps available.

 

Rockbox - Free alternate firmware to flash different types of mp3 players, ipods included.  Don't like using itunes (let's face it who does?)?, want to turn the ipod into a flac player?  Look no further.  http://www.rockbox.org/

 

Cheers

Are you guys generally finding FLAC better sounding than Apple Lossless?

I once tried to compared one track and couldn't hear any difference.

You need to patiently wait for the card I ordered to get here, I will test it on the iPod Mini.

I am not sure because there was power on the iPod, it will just skip songs or stutter on the first two seconds of songs. Got tired of listening to music that way.

So, somebody do the work for me, No CF on a 6G Fatty? 

post #1976 of 8763
Yes will work with the right adaptor.

Just let you guys know, Wellcore is planning to make 512GB CF cards after the Chinese New Year. I have no time table at this point, but I will be the first one to try it on ipod should they be successful producing it. I see no reason why they can't, they have excellent engineers from Taiwan with expertise in this field.

 

A 512GB CF DMod sounds awesome.

 

P.S. I am running out of space (again) for my music.

Whilst that's potentially good news (everybody!) I have a couple of concerns about it.

a)Price. The 256 is £300 or so right now (off the top of my head) I wonder what the 512 would be.

b) Would the Ipod be able to read all of that without issues? I have my doubts.

Cheers

No idea about what the price would be, but it will be much lower than the coming Lexar 512GB. :)

 

I have doubts too about whether this 512GB will work on ipod, but trying is the only way to prove it. With that said, I have reasonable hope for the 512GB based my experience with the 256GB CF. It may take a little bit longer to change albums or tracks but that will be understandable. Remember I restored this 256GB CF and ran it on an ipod 5g/30GB model without any issue.

Who wants to upgrade his iPod to 1TB storage capacity?
