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

    Thanks Master, concerning ‘lost tracks’ when I try and locate the track that will not play I check in iPod control and my music list and often find that the missing track is also missing in my iTunes music database. I have lots of places to find the tracks and mostly I can get them back. However, since recently changing over to my new PC I seem to have lost, possibly, over 2000 tracks out of 46,500 tracks (I’m still checking) and have had to go into my backup, that is on an external drive, and during the process of moving files to my new PC seems to have been the time when tracks went astray. The thought of finding all my CD’s is a daunting task so I might have to bite the bullet as I go through my albums in iTunes and just delete albums that have missing tracks unless I really want them and then I will either find the cd or try downloading from an iPod with no lost tracks.

    Problem turned out to be bad/fake Lexar SD cards from AliExpress!!

    Not seen music disappearing from iTunes before, does the user you run under have read/write access the files, and if you re-run the add folder to your library in iTunes, do the missing tracks get re-added?
