I don't use the equalizer so that shouldn't be the cause. I tried to reformat the CF and restore but no help. Anyways a new CF card and a new adapter are coming next week and that will tell if the problem has anything to do with them. If not, then it will have something to do with the logic board.

Not sure any one has tried this 128GB CF card, but I just got one and it works with the Tarkan and rockbox on 5g. The only error I encountered was a message saying something like "No partition and insert usb cable to fix it" following copying one time 90+ GB's of music to it from ipod to ipod. Maybe I pulled out the usb cable improperly. Anyways pressing the Menu+ Selection button got rid of it and everything seems normal. I have not encountered the skipping so far but time will tell as I listen more in the next a few days.

 

Speed of copying (usb2):

 

11mb/sec from portable drive (usb3)

3 hrs 20 mins from ipod 7G (usb2) for 92 GB's of music

 

It reminds me how much I love the rockbox for copying from ipod to ipod.

Um...I've used the 128GB card since the beginning.

Have you had the issue of skipping tracks with this card? So far I only encountered one so it's not bad. With the previous card I almost encountered a few times every day.

Anybody (DMinor) heard about any progress on Rockbox?  I've been keeping an eye on the RB hardware forum, and am not seeing much.

 

Frankly, as time goes on, I'm less and less concerned about getting Rockbox.  Other than drag-and-drop convenience and gapless playback (this is my only real concern, at this point), I've found a solution that works pretty well for dealing with FLAC files:  There's a plugin/tweak for Foobar that automagically wink.gif converts FLAC files to Apple Lossless when transferring them to the iPod.  Slows down the transfer by a tick, but it's not excrutiatingly slow, by any means.  Also means I don't have to keep two different encodes on my storage drive.  Still hate the Apple GUI and lack of a decent EQ, but I'm satisfied with it.

The last post (dated March 04) from this RB thread was the latest update from Torne. No progress made.

 

Yes the RB's drag-and-drop is big thing for me also it supports the cue files for FLAC's.

Naa D...no skipping tracks at all.

For those interested reports of Lexars 256 gig sdxc card working on a 7th gen classic with tarkan akdams adapter bundle.  $403 from amazon.com (or £269) it's not really cost effective (though for some reason I find myself tempted by it!).  Hopefully prices will drop soon enough.

 

Cheers

Another quick question if I may?   Do the mods that work in the 80 gig 5.5 gens work in the 30 gig models? I'm thinking of doing the msata mod with the 256 crucial.  Whilst it's been reported to work in the 5.5 gen I was just wondering if the same was true for the 30 gig models (bit cheaper to get hold of).  Also is the sound about the same for the 5 and 5.5's?


Cheers

The 30gig model has only 32MB buffer. So you might maybe search for a 80GB/60GB model with a dead hdd. These are pretty cheap. :)

post #973 of 3919
Thanks. Does the memory buffer matter that mutch?

Cheers
post #974 of 3919

The buffer is more important when using an HDD. It's used to cache the datastream off the hard drive -- so that if the iPod is dropped (or some other circumstance causes read errors), the music can continue playing uninterrupted while the drive mechanism recovers. At that, 32 MB is sufficient cache for a couple minutes worth of music -- a larger buffer is more useful for playing videos, which have higher data rates.

 

An SSD is effectively shockproof (at least up to the point where you're going to endanger the rest of the iPod too biggrin.gif ) and has faster read rates than an HDD, so the size of the buffer isn't as critical.

Owners of the Crucial mSATA CT256M4SSD3, what is your battery life?

I have strange results with my iPod Video 5.5.

When I use mSATA SSD disk - iPod works about 9 hours.

When I use Toshiba mk2431gah, 240gb (Classical Hard Disk Drive) - iPod works about 10 hours.
