This is the fewest number of songs loaded before a lock up, and since I coded this entire test library to 128.mp3 files, it suggests the instability issue is not related to the number of songs or the gb loaded. I am beginning to wonder if i have a bad Lexar card. Oh this is painful.

 

Sorry man to hear about all the issues. If you can still return those drives, I would say just get a couple of 256GB CF cards and call it a day.

That would need to be confirmed by testing one of them with H2testw

^ IMHO, it actually suggests that instability MAY BE related to the number of songs loaded. For the same storage space, if you load it with 128 Kbps songs, you will have ~6 times more songs than you would have for flac. iPod's RAM is quite small, so it may have a processing / listing limit even with Rockbox.

I totally agree with you on the above statement, I don't use iTunes. I use MediaMonkey and when I was loading the 256gb iPod mini at one point MediaMonkey told me that a file already existed and if I wanted to overwrite it, immediately after that the iPod was no longer functioning and the only thing that I could do it restore it.

 

To me it's like there is a maximum number of songs that the itunesdb could create.  The difference with RockBox is that you store the files and access them when you browse the folders do there's no database to create.

 

(I hope it makes sense) :normal_smile : 

 

Edit: My 256 mSATA iPod video doesn't have that issue but it is mostly loaded with Apple Lossless, it has 14,216 songs and they were transferred with MediaMonkey and foobar2000.

I have a 30GB iPod Video and I just installed Tarkan's CF to SD adapter along with a 128GB SD card.  It loads very fast and works perfectly using the Apple firmware both formatted as MAC or FAT32.  Rockbox installs just fine, but when I try to load music onto it using Windows, OSX or Linux, I get USB errors after just a couple of songs transfer.  It doesn't totally lock up, but I can see the errors in the log?

 

The SD card is a Patriot EP series.  I did have rockbox running just fine on this iPod before converting it to SD.

 

 

Any ideas?

 

 

Thanks

Have you tried to transfer music while on disk mode? The problem might not be rockbox.

I am sorry if this was asked before, but I want to order a CF card to do the Tarkan Mod. The adaptor just arrived.

Any big differences in performance between using a 600x CF card vs a 1000x?

 

Cheers!

600x card will be plenty fast, and will draw less power. wink.gif

Great! Will order a komputerbay 600x 128gb from Amazon. :)

Hope I can then pry open the iPod... Bought the tools from Tarkan also.

 

Cheers!

Just installed Kingspec 128GB ZIF SSD in my 5.5g. Works flawlessly, no hiccups whatsoever.

I have that same drive in the iriver 120.  As you say works flawlessly.  Just a shame that they don't do a 256 :(
