iPOD and SDHC – SDXC cards


For some time many people have wanted to use my iFlash iPod CF adapter with the new generation of large format SD memory cards. SDHC and SDXC are the new generation of SD cards which are cheaper and have capacities of upto 256Gb and growing.

Installation is simple, the iFlash is first installed – then install the SD card in to your SD-CF Adapter – finally insert the whole thing in to the iFlash, ready to restore the iPod.

SDHC and SDXC which cards to get

So far all the SDHC and SDXC cards I tested worked ok, so it is looking likely that majority of the SD cards out there will work ok.

In terms of card speed, one user has reported issues playing FLACS with a Class 4 card. I would suggest you want a minimum of a Class 6 card with Class 10 the prefered option.

So far… working and tested in 5g / 6g / 7g iPods

The current compatibility list has been moved to the iFlash-Solo product page.

    Thanks Zed,
    I was beginning to think that I had a faulty logic board but have seen posts elsewhere that mentioned cleaning cable clamp contacts and some have eventually sorted out the problem and the fact that the scroll wheel will reset the iPod makes you think that it is working. I will have to delve into the connections again to see where it gets me.
    As for the memory loss issue I equate it to asking for 1000 pennies and being given only 930! If you only get 930 GB that’s useable why not advertise a 930 GB card. I know that it’s the same for all memory bur I think that it’s immoral selling something that falls short of what it’s advertised capacity actually is in reality. Car engines are usually a couple of cc’s under the advertised engine size but it’s usually only 2 or 3 cc’s such as the 1 litre Ford Anglia that was regularly known as the 997 cc Anglia and my 1500cc MK1 Ford Cortina log book said it was 1498cc’s. I just think that memory manufacturers have taken it a lot too far and no-one says anything, most peculiar.
    Anyway, if anyone else has a miracle cure for my strangely uncooperative iPod then I would love to hear from them.
    Thanks, Pete Mayhew
