Official Ipod Video / Classic 5g+5.5g+6g+6.5g+7g SSD Mod thread - Page 407

post #6091 of 6096

 

I’m trying to get a 1TB 850 EVO mSata working with the Tarkan adapter. 

I installed the SSD, and fully charged the ipod with a wall charger – it says “Restore in itunes”, so everything looks good. But when I connect it to my PC, the ipod boots with a white screen that says “Do not disconnect”. It looks like disk mode, but it does not say “disk mode” at the top of the screen. My PC recognizes the device (“Apple Ipod USB device”) after a while, but iTunes does not and so I can’t initiate the restore. I left it plugged into the PC for about an hour and the SSD gets very hot.

I removed the SSD and followed the AOMEI procedure to reformat the SSD and fix MBR, but still get the same result. I’m not sure what could be wrong or what to try next.

iTunes should see the iPod when its connected and the iPod is showing restore in iTunes.

OK, I think I have all the parts I need for a T-pod.  Time to build. 

 

Where to start?  Figure out and install Rockbox?  I'm an absolute newbie with this stuff. 

Then hook msata to mobo and format in FAT32? 

 

I have my 7 month old twins currently sleeping in my den evenings, so working will be slow, but I should get some computer time over the upcoming holiday.  Thanks in advance for any guidance!


​Install board with SSD in iPod, restore in iTunes, Sync music or proceed to RockBoxing it.

I believe I read somewhere that the 850 1TB doesn't work with iPods. Only the 840.

@rgarjr, Looks great!  I like the white click wheel!

 

I myself need to get a new battery for my iMod :-/  It won't hold a charge at all.  I really hope it's just a battery issue and nothing more.

 

In the mean time I've saved $500 of "fun money."  I planned to use it to purchase an iBasso DX90, but now thinking about investing it in stocks.  Now I can't decide! lol

$350 picks you up a nice Fiio X5II.  Dual microSD card slot.
