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
