Rockbox for iPOD Video 5th 5.5th mSATA SSD MOD - Page 13

post #181 of 189

I had a 1TB EVO working in a 5.5 gen.  Swapped in my old 256GB to give it to my girlfriend. Picked up a 5th gen and cannot seem to get it to run stable even with a 850mAh battery.

 

*edit* Okay, this thing has gone bonkers.  Neither of my 30GB hard drives will restore now, and this is what the specs are reading in diagnostics.

I gave up using that card, too many headaches.

I wonder if a Rockbox guru can set me straight on something.  It looks like the Wolfson DAC in most ipods can handle 24 bit and 96 khz. 

 

There is some question what the limits are for standard IOS on the Wolfson equipped units, or for that matter what the limits are for current machines.

 

Similarly, my assumption is that Rockbox is working directly with the DAC.

 

So the questions relate to what are the actual limits under IOS for the wolfson units and current units like the iphone 6 or 6 plus.

 

And what are the native, non resampled or dithered limits for units like the ipod video 5.5g or ipod mini 2g using Rockbox?

 

Thanks!

Has anyone tried using a Samsung 850 Evo 1TB? Apparently it uses less power and the 500GB version is compatible with Tarkan's adapter. I'm not sure whether I should go for the 850 or 840 because the price difference is just short of $50.

If the power draw is lower, it should work fine.  If you try it, report back with the results please!

I got an old 5.5 gen iPod Video working with the iFlash-SATA adapter and MyDigitalSSD BP4e – 512Gb. I installed the guts of the iPod into a new 80g case (and faceplate, and clickwheel…) with a 1900mAh battery.

 

It was a tight squeeze with the thermal pad included with Tarkans iFlash unit, if the pad was 33% less thick maybe it would have been a better fit.

 

Itunes formatted the drive without any problems.

 

Running RockBox as modified in this thread by beyondwind for use with mSata (but with the superior iFlash-SATA), I am happily playing tunes at my desk today.

I will try large file copies tonight, I only copied a few folders over since it was really late....
