I managed to snag a 6.5 gen classic 120GB with a dying battery. I'll start working on a modding strategy for it.
I gotta tell you, I really want to do an mSATA in this iPod. Can anyone confirm if that is possible and has been done successfully? Any luck with this adapter and this drive?
If not, I will have to go the Tarkan ZIF->CF adapter with a CF->SD adapter. He has a bundle for the adapters needed so I would just have to find the best SD card known to work.
Can anyone comment on either of those routes?
I can confirm the Transcend 128GB SDXC works well with the Tarkan, and I have a pair of those.
Also I tried this 64GB CF card recently and it works well with Tarkan. Although the mSATA rules the mega storage (excellent for backing up music library to ipods), I love the CF cards for its power efficiency. Honestly we are spoiled with all the available options. The thing I have not tried is a ZIF SSD drive.
Funky has a V6, so the mSata route is out. The KingSpec 128g is my hands down go-to solution for Zif SSD upgrades to V6 thin and V7.
Dminor, can you confirm the CF upgrades were V6 or V7 ipods?
