How many partitions did you format the SSD with and what format is each partition? My iPod hard drive currently has two partitions: 223.45 GB as FAT32 and 125 MB as "Unallocated". See note *
Also What formatting software did you use?
I assume any mSATA to USB3 adapter will work?
* Note: My Toshiba MK2431GAH 240 GB hard drive was formatted in iPod. I then converted iPod to Rockbox and loaded music to hard drive while it was in RB'ed iPod.
Sure. I installed the chip straight from the box into the newly assembled ipod. I restored it in iTunes, closed Itunes and loaded RB onto the ipod. I made a folder called "music" and ejected the ipod. I took the chip out of the ipod, loaded it into my msata adapter, connected it to the computer, started it up, opened the drive where the chip resided, opened the "music" folder and loaded my files onto it. I reinstalled the chip into the ipod, booted it up and - horray - fully loaded ipod.
I did not format this chip - i let itunes restore it. Earlier loads were done 30-50g at a time while the chip was in the ipod. Very tedious.
