(All of the tests below use the same iTunes database using stock ipod firmware. The ipod logic boards are known to work fine with Toshiba 240gb HD. All are 64k RAM. All songs in test library are coded to 128.mp3)
- 240g Toshiba HD V7: I have now loaded 57121 songs on to the ipod. Ipod almost full.
- 256g BP4 mSata V5.5: I've loaded 46799 songs and on completion, the ipod reported 0 songs. I checked the music folder on the ipod, and all 46799 songs are there. So, i disconnected the ipod and reset it. The Apple logo remained on the screen for about four minutes, but once it hit the menu screen - all songs were now present. To be sure it would play, I selected Nazareth's Hair of the Dog album and it played all songs on album straight through. Now playing Beatles for Sale. All of the artwork, however, is missing(?) The iTunesdb is just over 80k on the ipod. I have 33.4g free space remaining. My goal is to match the load limit of the Toshiba HD, if possible.
