Posted a new video – demonstrating the complete restore and sync of a 1Tb 7.5g iPod Classic.
I have done this many many times now with zero problems, so I thought this time I would make a video.
Syncing is done using iTunes 11, importantly I used the Apple Dual Firewire/USB Docking Lead, and the Apple 12V Firewire charger.
The firewire can supply enough power to the iPod while syncing that you do not have to worry about Power Loss Corruption issues which can occur while syncing mSata drive based iPods. The iPod USB Charge circuit cannot supply enough power to the mSata during syncing to stop the battery drain issues.
