Upgrade to my iPod video to 256gb SSD

what kind of ipod to buy


How are you?

I have an iPod Video, the 5th gen one with 30gb.

I enjoy the sound output from the ipod very much so I would like to keep using it.

I would however like to expand it's storage.

From what I read on the web, there are several possibilities for the iPod video, form larger 1.8 PATA hard-drives, to mSata SSD, to Compact Flash cards.

I'm currently working on a fifth generation video 30gb and I'm looking at using this because the iPod only allows for a hard drive that's 5mm thick and Compact Flash Type II memory is already 5mm thick:

Thank you very much for your reply.

I was thinking of going the mSATA SSD route, because my goal is to turn my 5th gen video into a 240gb or 256gb iPod.

The mSATA SSD is more cost efficient than 256gb CF cards.

I am thinking about this adapter:

For the mSATA SSD, I am looking at a Toshiba drive, the HG5d mSATA.

According to this, the drive is 3.3v:

The other option is a 240gb Crucial m500 mSATA SSD.

I cannot find confirmation of any of these setups to work on a 5th gen.
