Hi

 

I have modded my iPod video 60Gb with a 480 SSD (Crucial) and an msata to zif adapter. The iPod works quite well and transfer time is not too bad although I think is slower than USB 2.0. However, I am facing the problem that after 1-2 hours of use (although the iPod seems fully charged) the iPod switch off automatically and the battery indicator is in deep red. I have not Rockboxed it (as a matter of fact I am not sure I can with this SSD size). I have also replaced the battery recently with a brand new one. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

That are the symptoms of a weak battery. It may work good with a HD or CF card but it is not keeping up with the mSATA power demand.

Is it because the 480 SSD msata is "too big" or this problem would apply to any SSD of any size? My understanding from reading various forums is that people have been quite successful with sizes of 240 and below.

 

Thanks

According to the main modding thread Msata is quite power hungry.  Whilst it is fine if you are just playing back as soon as you do any sort of folder browsing (say to change albums or songs or whatever) then it takes a massive hit.  If you do a search in the main modding thread there are recommendations for batteries in their with the most popular one being the 2000 mah one from china.  Otherwise the cf mod still seems to be the way to go but at the expense of storage space.
