Interesting...it was cheaper getting it directly from Tarkan.

Do you do your own soldering? If so...how much would you charge to do the DIYmod? My soldering skills aren't up for it...lol

I'll get on it, I hit a small snafu this afternoon when the SSD dislodged.  It was only sort of tacked down with hot glue, so I'll need to find a more secure mounting solution before I give RockBox a try.

He is a diy guru! I don't think there is anything he can't diy.

Is this because with the new back plate it's too loose inside? How about putting a piece of form to secure it?

@ Icefalcon:

Not sure about the Guru bit LOL, but yes I've done the Direct-out DiyMod for quite a few guys.

Nuff to say I'm not free but much cheaper than RWA... ;-)

Not sure about that one. But for the same price, this 120GB ZIF SSD is proven working on the iPod 5.5g's.

I recently was given an ipod with one of these in to mod.... don't get it!!!!

It works fine IF you can twist and crease the ribbon cable enough to get it to fit.

iPod ribbons are slightly off-centre and this drives is central.... nightmare!!!

It kept forcing it's way out even after you closed the case.

No_eye...did you get my PM? The page froze up when I sent it...

Do you mean the MX-Technology 120GB 1.8" PATA MX-NANO Series ZIF SSD?

Guess I have to keep my fingers crossed as I purchased it already after reading 1 of the reviews on amazon that said it was working. Will post back with results as soon as I try it. Thanks though.

So...could this unit work on slim 160Gb Classic (MC297LL)?

Very tempted to give it a try even at the steep asking price...

Well I don't read or speak German...what's the voltage?
