Review: Modded iPod Classic 7G with 240GB HDD from eBay - Page 4

post #46 of 183

OK, so I've bought a 240GB ipod from elec-king on ebay, and I'm having trouble installing rockbox on it. When I press and hold the menu+select button for more than 10 seconds, it goes black for a couple seconds only and then the apple logo appears and then the ipod gets connected to the computer again. So basically I can't get the Apple Recovery (DFU) USB Driver to show up.

 

Edit: I've figured it out now. The Apple Driver never shows up, but you can just go ahead and run bootstrap_ipodclassic_itunes and it will bring up the UMSboot driver.

have you got it running?

post #48 of 183

Yes it's running fine, but sometimes the drive doesn't get recognized for some reason, so I just boot it again and it works.

Hows the quality of the ipod itself?  Still tempted to get one of these, but just may end up buying the 160 'cause it's easier :)

Quality is fine. Only noticeable difference is the 240GB engraved backplate and different colors on the hold switch and headphone jack. I'm assuming they used parts from the silver version since when you first connect it, itunes shows a silver ipod as well.

I've had mine for over a month now and detect nothing wrong or inferior to my previous stock 7th gen Classic. It syncs fine with iTunes and plays both mp3, aac, alac and Audible audiobook formats and via line-out I can detect no sound difference (have never tried headphone out on either unit). All in all well pleased with my purchase

I just went with a 160 in the end.  Will be filling it up with audiobooks and comedys and keeping the touch for music.

 

Thanks

My Classic is for audio books and my huge aac library. My Touch is for films and Spotify. They are glued either side of the SR71-B for a nice sandwich. Hires flac goes on the C4

No 240 gb ipods to be found on ebay.  The only other source google found for me (Redirect Marketing LLC) has a BBB rating of F, mostly for products ordered but never delivered (kid you not!).  PayPal is not a payment option on their website.  I emailed them asking if they would take a payment though PayPal and never got a reply so I am NOT ordering from them. 

 

Does anyone know of any other source of 240 gb ipods?  Thanks.

After a quick "worldwide" search at eBay for "ipod 240GB", one of the results may be of interest to you: http://www.ebay.com/itm/240GB-iPod-upgrade-from-oringal-7th-Gen-160GB-iPod-/261067035339

 

The same seller also has the silver version listed for the same price... wink.gif

I swear I searched ebay several times for ipod 240 gb, 240 gb ipod, refurbished ipod etc. and got nothing but posts with expired offers of 240 gb ipods, including from Elec-king!!!!  Oh well, I 'm so glad and thankful your search was more successful.  I've put my order in.  Thank you so much!

OK putente, this is driving me nuts.  Just for my curiosity, I searched again for 240 gb ipods on ebay and was still unable to get to the listing you got.  How did you find that one; what exactly did you type in the search box?

It gives the same results for both "ipod 240gb" or "240gb ipod". Then I choose "Worldwide", and order by the higher price and they're just there... rolleyes.gif

Ah, I see.  I wasn't checking worldwide... What a convoluted way to get to a listing...  You'd think just searching for part of the listing title of an item should bring it up, regardless...  Anyway, I thank you again for your help.
