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

    I took the risk to try the Samsung 512gb micro SD cards with the iflash quad adapter. They work running stock firmware and 3000mAh battery. So far after a few hours of use all is well, and showing 1907gb available on the about page. But I think the actual storage was in the mid 1850gb range.

    I am also wondering about the Kingston Canvas select cards. Spec-wise they seem on par with Samsungs offerings, but quite a bit cheaper.
