Why not building a 512GB one?

I do, however I also corrected my bogus spelling on the OP as well.

Can you give more details how did you manage to achieve that sort of capacity in your iPod? Also what version of iPod is that and what OS please?

Thank you.

Thank you.

Tarkan will soon release the iFlash-Sata adapter that will allow you to use mSATA cards in your iPod Classic, I have been testing one of the beta adapters and now the retail version and it works flawlessly.  The OS I am using is the stock iPod Classic firmware.

 

IN addition to this I am using a 2000mAH battery that last a long time.

I am very interested in modifying a 7th gen Ipod classic, using a Crucial 480gb ssd, with the Tarkan adapter.

It's mandatory for me maintaining the original Apple firmware, in order to use Itunes.

 

I looked everywhere but couldn't find much informations.

 

Did anyone succeeded and can confirm that it is possible?

 

Any issue?

 

Thanks.

Thanks.

I did use a Crucial 480gb successfully before moving the the slightly bigger Samsung 512gb card.  This can be done without any issues

Super. I am going to hunt for a 120gb classic and modify it.

A 120GB Classic will be LBA28 crippled by it's own firmware, and thus limited to 127.7 GB storage capacity.

 

Of all the different Classic models, I believe only the 160GB slim back will work for what you are trying to do with the stock firmware (i.e. no Rockbox).

 

So your hunt should be for a 160GB thin back only.

 

Other members feel free to correct or support the above.

Thanks Mikeyfresh, I guess that the 160gb thin model should be the last one (7th g) produced.
Correct?

Mike it's right, the 6th and 6.5th gen have this 127.7gb imitation. Only work around is if you install RockBox on it.

Thats correct, I believe it came out in Sept. 2009 and was current until very recently discontinued.

 

The model # or "Order #" in Apple-speak should be the following:

 

MC293LL/A (160 - Silver)
MC297LL/A (160 - Black)

 

​Thats really the only way to positively identify it, other than the serial number itself.

 

Even there, you need the model/serial # from the iPod's on-screen menu "About" section, rather than from the laser etching on the back cover because if someone had ever replaced that back cover the information there will likely be inaccurate.
