Launched: iFlash-Dual – The iPod dual SD adapter

Proud to announce my latest product in the successful iFlash adapter range.

The iFlash-Dual, is a newly designed native SD adapter for the iPod. With the unique feature of allowing the use of 1 SD card or 2 SD cards in JBOD (Just a Bunch Of Disks) mode.

There is no switch or adjustment, the iFlash-Dual seamlessly switches from single SD mode to Dual SD mode fully automatically. Just insert a second SD card and restore/sync the iPod to see the new enlarged capacity.

As the iFlash-Dual utilises JBOD you are free to mix your cards, it has even been engineered to allow the use of different makes and models together, to provide maximum flexibility : 256Gb + 256Gb to get a 512Gb iPod, or how about 64Gb + 256Gb to achieve 320Gb, and for those on a tight budget 64Gb + 128Gb for a 192Gb iPod, and many more combinations.

With smart power management you get the best runtimes even when running two SD cards, on average there is only 20% difference in runtimes between Single card use and Dual card use. Read my runtime/power consumptions article.

iPod and SD card compatiblity is the same as the existing iFlash-Bundle.

Shipping is scheduled to start from 1st October 2015.

    @John Henderson – They do not have storage limits just low iTunes track limits, so we generally suggest 128GB to 256GB for the 30GB models.

    When you say the 7th g will work do you mean the 2nd revision of the 6th gen? The iPod that came out in 09?

  4. Support

    @Jason – The 128GB limit is for the 6th Gen iPod’s only, and our iFlash adapters do not change that – the 4th gen/5g/5.5g/7g iPod do not have that limit.

    I see on the site it says the max the iPod reads is 128 gb. Will using this adpater allow me to use more?

    hi, i am using a ipod video 80gb version. I am using Apple Lossless Audio Codec format in all my songs. I have abot 1200 songs inside my ipod. i will take your advise and tried transferring half of my songs to my ipod first. thanks

    @Javern – Not something I have experienced, I would check it is not library size related. Is the model you are using originally 30GB? if so try removing tracks from the iPod – start with 50% of what you have now and see if issues are still present.

    Hi there, recently i bought a new iflash dual sd adapter for my ipod video 5.5 gen. i am currently using a 128GB Patriot LX Series Class 10 SDXC on my ipod . I have no problem syncing all my songs to the ipod. but after a while i notice sometimes there is no sound coming out of the headphones jack , i had to reset the ipod then the sound will come back . also while connecting to my car stereo at times the whole ipod will hang and i need to reset it again. the whole ipod will hang and i need to do a hard reset. Can anyone give me some advise? thank you .

    The iFlash Dual is working perfectly so far in my iPod 5G. I’m using a Komputerbay 128GB Class 10 SDXC card from Amazon UK and have no problems yet.

    Installation was pretty straightforward, although I don’t think I seated the iFlash Dual correctly in the connector first time.

    Disappointingly the card showed a full 128GB in my Ubuntu computer, but once formatted and installed in the iPod (with no music restored yet), it only showed 118GB.

    Thanks for the reply. I doubt the card has problems since it is still quite new and working properly before. I formatted it in AOMEI based from your guide before installing it into the iFlash dual but I will test it as you suggested just to be sure. I will also look into the faulty ribbon angle. Hope I can finally run this thing soon. Thanks again.

    @Carl – Formatting can sometimes cause this, also a bad or faulty HDD ribbon can cause the same issue. Try formatting the MicroSD card – while you are doing that confirm the card is fully working by running something like H2Testw against it, this will show you if the card is the capacity it says it is, and the read/write speeds.

    May be you can formating your sd card and try again. You have to check before if you have moved Tarkan connector in the good side . Later ….

    Hi Tarkan,
    I recently purchased the iFlash dual for my 60gb Ipod Video 5.5g. I decided to use it with a single 128gb Samsung Evo+ Microsd on SD1 which is the only SD Card I have. Unfortunately, after re-assembling, the computer can’t recognize the iPod, not even a charging message appears on screen. All I can see is the message to “Restore in iTunes” which gives me a big problem since I think the computer cannot recognize the device itself. The connecting cable is quite new and was working before. Even moving to other usb ports have no effect either. Does this mean the problem is due to Samsung SD Card incompatibility or might be I possibly damaged the board opening the iPod? Thanks.

    @Mark. Just updating my post. My 7G Dual iFlash 1TB was working after an upgrade, but not appearing on the computer. In disc mode, it said that it was ok to disconnect, but did not say anything about connecting. So put it in disk mode and connected the USB. A few seconds later the computer found it. I said I only had 137G. I formatted it anyway, disconnected and reconnected. This time iTunes found it! After an iTunes restore and after 3 hours, I have the complete 940G and 20000 songs on the iPod.

    I need help please. I damaged the power connector on my 7G Dual Flash. Fortunately, I found someone that could solder it back on yo the logic board. Seems to provide all the power needed. However, now I only get the white apple and it is repeatedly resetting. I entered the manual diagnostics and every looks ok. I can enter disk mode, but the ipod does not show on the main computer. Is it supposed to do so?

    @Dave – The larger capacities make sense for libraries which are made up of very high bitrate or lossless files, having said that a library made up good quality high bitrate MP3’s would need around ~350GB for ~50,000 tracks.
