I have 630g on two Samsung 1Ts. One is main ipod and one is backup

@DR, is it possible that the problem lies with the iPod and not the ssd? Perhaps there is some difference with the iPod?

It's possible that the 480GB card I am using have some bad sectors which are not allowing me to load more data. I am doing more test now to determine if I need an RMA for the card.

 

Edit: I have sucessfully loaded 421GB of music files to the 512GB iPod Classic.

I do not think the chip is the problem. I have another board I can test, but I need to be sure it is the iPod before I start over again.

Just curious, how many files? Are you using iTunes?

FYI - I tested the 1TB card with five different iPods, two were 5.5th gen iPods, one a 5th gen and a 6th gen and a 6.5th gen and it didn't work in any of them.

I use MediaMonkey, will check how many files when I get home later tonight.

Good news - Reformatted 1T Samsung tonight, restored in iTunes, copied RB, attached to computer and watched it suck the life out of my battery with a 2g load. Changed to a fresh battery, switched to a different USB port, and suddenly it works great. I transferred 24g with only a 5% change in battery. Returned to previous USB and tried to load 2g. TeraPod3 began losing battery power rapidly so i stopped the transfer. My USB port is bad. It's not the iPod failing to load, it's the USB failing to transfer the files.

I still don't know what step allowed me to load the chip externally. I've tried both manual load settings in iTunes on 5.5gens without luck. I have noticed that on occasion, iPod HD drives attached directly to the computer will recognise as an iPod. This has also occurred with SD chips. I never paid much attention to this, but now I am wondering if this occurs with the 5th gen only.

There's 24,420 files on the 7th gen iPod right now.

^ Your USB port may not be a "bad". It may simpl supply less power than the other one, because it was set up by default that way. By default, some computer USB ports have more power than the others. Sorry I cannot remember exactly how to change that, though it is probably in USB hardware control in a drop down menu when you right click on symbol of a USB port.

 A couple of pages ago DR650SE recommended this cable which I ordered from eBay.

 

The one on the link I posted is actually cheaper than the one I paid for.

^ That cable worked wonders for me. I transfered 90GB in one operation. No failures, no limit, no problem.

Just make sure you also get a wall plug box with a firewire port on it. Designed for the older iPods. This will allow it to supply plenty of power from the wall, while the files are being transfered via USB. So essentially the USB is plugged into the computer, and firewire is plugged into the wall. Increased and steady power biggrin.gif

Quick question if I may.

 

If I get a 30 gig ipod video, do I need to get a 80 gig back for the battery and msata mod?  Or will I be able to just crack it open, install msata,adapter for msata, new battery and away I go?

 

Thanks

I have one with the slim back cover on, the only thing is that battery is greatly improved if you use one of the Milliamp thick batteries and for this you need the fat back cover.

I reloaded mine (480GB Crucial chip) to 350GB and used it for a few days with no problems at all.

 

I then took it up to around 375GB and on reboot got the following error message immediately after the Rockbox menu appeared:

 

SWI at 0000002C (0)

PC:0000002C  SP:00000820

bt end

 

The iPod started getting hot at the same time.

 

I powered down, connected it to the computer and restarted. It went into USB disc mode no problem. I rebooted while connected to the computer and then ejected the iPod. It restarted without any problem and has been working fine ever since.

 

I will try adding some more files tomorrow and check its behaviour again.
