Yes, you can use a 1.8" "ZIF" SSD in your iPod, such as this one, however, since they are thinner than the "Fat" hard drive in your model of iPod, you may need to find a way to secure it inside the case to prevent rattling.

Thanks Chris, that is a good starting point. Ideally, I don't want to lose that much of the capacity, anything > 100GB that you are aware of?

You can get a 128GB SSD and maybe a 256GB SSD, but they're not cheap.

Dominic, did you mean to accept the answer that helped you? Right now you accepted your comment as an answer.....;-)

Hey OldTurkey. I know, ridiculous isn't it, but I could not see how to accept the response from Chris Green. Perhaps, thinks I, the system will accept the most recent comment? Obviously not. Oddly enough, I returned to the site on receipt of the email from Chris and his response was not even there. After refreshing the page, clicking on his page, returning, switching between views etc it eventually appeared.

A couple of years later, a less expensive solution is to get the Sintech PA6007 1.8" ZIF/IDE to mSATA adapter and mount a standard mSATA SSD on it.

The Sintech adapter is about $15 on Ebay, $20 on Amazon, and I've seen it as low as $10 around the web. The interfaces are all proper, but I'm not sure if there are power demand issues.

240GB mSATA SSDs have been turning up at Holiday sales this year (2013) as low as $130 -- mainly at Amazon and Newegg.

So for under $150 one can get 240 GB of storage.

Of course, just before the Toshiba MK2431 was discontinued, one could get 240 GB of much slower storage for ~ $75.

Thanks, Jeff! I was looking for a solution like that. I just ordered the mSATA and adapter.

I work in an area where they do allow iPods, but do NOT allow anything with a radio (bluetooth, WiFi). Sadly, I have no hope that Apple will remake the Classic with an SSD. The 6th Gen Nano works, but it's only 16GB. If this mSATA solution works, I will probably end up getting a few Classics and 'upgrading' them.

I'm glad I was able to help. Watch the cable orientation. I had the cable upside down at first, and, of course, that doesn't work. The tricky bit is that I carefully compared the cable orientation on the original hard drive to the cable orientation I used on the adapter and was sure I had it correct. It turns out, on more careful examination, the cable connector on hard drives is actually mounted on the back-side (from you) of the board and protrudes through a cut-out in the end of the board. So the cable connector on the hard drive is actually upside down to how it looks on first examination.

Hi, Jeff. I stumbled across your replies while trying to figure out the best way to upgrade my hard drive after my Ipod screen started displaying the red x. I have replaced my battery and upgraded the hard drive using the adapter you suggested with Crucial 120gb mSATA SSD. The Ipod screen is still displaying the red x. I've checked cable connections and reversed them to verify, but nothing seems to help.

Do you have any other reccommendations? Thanks so much!

tarafından

The only problem is that mSATA uses almost as much power as a hard drive. The better option is to use an iFlash Quad from iFlash.xyz .... uses far less power. If you combine that with a 3000mAh battery and larger backing, your iPod will literally play for 14 days if left playing 24 hrs. a day. So for casual listens at work for 8 hours a day, that means you'd only have to charge the player once per month.

tarafından

To amend my comment here.... you can fit the iFlash board with a thin backing and the 3000mAh battery. People told me I needed the larger back, but you actually don't.

Best solution, IMO, is the iFlash Quad at iflash.xyz

I don’t know if this unit can take 512GB micro SD cards yet since they’re a bit expensive at the moment, but 400GB micro SD cards work just fine in it and use very little power. My unit with 3000mAh battery gets charged only once per month and is never low on power when I charge it. Performance is excellent on it too. To fill up my 1.6TB iPod, it does take about 16 hours, but subsequent syncs take maybe 2 minutes to download the database file from the iPod (which is in itself 1.5GB in size). After that, it goes fast.

iflash.xyz was my solution too. Worked without any problem.

I doubt that you can load an iPod (thick, 2007) with more than 120 GB (SSD) though. Just the youngest iPod generation can be equipped with such large SSD drives when using iTunes as player.

tarafından

No, that's partially right. The 1.x models of the iPod Classic have an LBA28 limit of 128GB which you can't really get around (except with the thick 160GB drives from that era). Get a mainboard of 2.0.4 or 2.0.5 and you definitely can go beyond 128GB. For Windows, the limit would then be 2TB. Not sure if the HFS format of Apple lets you go higher but since we're limited to 512GB cards at the moment (in terms of feasibility and price), you can't really break 2TB just yet. And I have 1.7TB on my 2.0.4 model with a 512GB and 3 400GB cards. You can fill it up.... it took me just about 2 days to do it, but you can do it. :) I highly recommend stopping sync every 6 hours or so to give you a good checkpoint because one hiccup and it won't commit the sync for what you just put on it. :)

EDIT: But people have said the 5th generation Video iPod also does not have an LBA28 limitation and can go up to 2TB. The issue is that there's less RAM in it so the more you add, the more problems you have. I think if you have about 10000 songs, you're probably OK. Go to maybe 30k songs and you might start having problems.

tarafından

But if you have a 1.x Classic, you can just swap out the mainboard for a 2.0.4 or 2.0.5 model. The issue comes where you have to clean the partition table of the cards or else you'll have issues in iTunes and such. Just take out each one, open DiskPart in PC, select disk (very important here... also use LIST DISK to make sure you selected the micro SD card drive), then type CLEAN. No confirmation comes up, nothing.... except a confirmation it was successful... Then plug it back in and restore with iTunes.

The CLEAN aspect is key if going from one firmware to another. I went from a 2.0.5 to a 2.0.4 when the 2.0.5 dock connector broke and this was required for it to work right. But after that, it has been fine since.

I'm with you @alissa914 - The iFlash-dual is what I have in mine I just love it!

I had the same issue. The second time I took it apart, I ripped one of the ribbon cable connections from the motherboard and ended up scrapping the entire iPod. I have a ZIF converter and a 128GB mSSD if somebody wants it!

Yes but remember that 1.x iPod Classics are limited to 128GB using the stock firmware. The 160GB model can break that for the hard drive only but for an SSD, it's 128GB.

If you want more than that, you have to swap the mainboard with a 2.0.4 or 2.0.5 version. But if you're in the market for it, go iFlash Quad.... better than the SSD (more power efficient) but more importantly... expandable.

Now this would be a good one, a bit expensive though, but totally worth it.

A 1TB iPod Classic!

I'm not sure how much storage the Classic models can address. For example, according to a forum post I saw elsewhere (ipodwizard.net), the 5.5 Gen iPods can only address to 240 GB, so I'd be hesitant about buying an expensive SSD for this kind of brain surgery without being sure that it will work in a particular model.

ebay would be your best bet. Just look up "1TB mSATA"

i did see the ssd but i would like to know which ipod generation will it work

by the way : will this work?

From what the website said, msata would work best with the 7.5 gen ipod classic. Aka the very last of them before they were pulled from market. As for the evo, that should work. You still need the zif adapter

So what happens after you do a successful drive swap to an SSD? Does the iPOD OS have to be loaded somehow?

You load the software just like u do with the regular hard drive.

I guess I'll YouTube that because I've never done that before... Thanks.

Basically, you put it in and then you get the popup that says "Connect to iTunes to restore." Then you hit Restore, it formats and installs it, then reboots. Very painless nowadays. The firmware is about 35MB or so and that usually downloads in a minute on modern internet connections.

what gen is your ipod?

This could be a partitioning issue. If you have a 5th gen or later, try getting a 1.8" ZIF to USB adapter from Amazon (or eBay too, I guess). Go into DISKPART, select DISK (*absolutely* make sure you select your 1.8" ZIF drive for your iPod and not your boot disk... double check with LIST DISK to be safe).... after you confirm that, type CLEAN. That removes the partition table. Don't initalize it in Windows again... just put it directly into the iPod. Boot the iPod back up and it should tell you to connect to your PC/Mac and use iTunes to restore. Then Restore in iTunes.

If you have a 1.x iPod Classic, you'll only see 128GB. 5th gen and 7th gen? You should see the whole thing.
