Title: best 2021 upgrade for Iriver iHP-120?
Post by: highriver on September 16, 2021, 04:59:29 AM
Hey there,

I would like to upgrade a Iriver iHP-120 possibly with a 1TB storage disk (or even more?). I am not necessarily looking for the cheapest option but reasonably easy to find online disks/adapters that won't cause frequent SATA errors or other system instabilties such as freezing screens when using the player.

Any advice will be appreciated!

ps: For many years I have been the happy owner of another Iriver iHP-120 upgraded to Rockbox 3.12 with a Mach Xtreme 120GB SSD but nowadays it seems impossible to find any of these babies.

Sorry didn't see your post until now. I would suggest first upgrading the bootloader to latest V8 one. I prepared it some time ago to resolve some issues with CF cards.

As for storage your best bet is probably an SD card to CF adapter as these are the cheapest way to get high storage capacity these days. I would suggest trying the iFlash SD to CF adapter and using one of the CF to 1.8" 50 pin adapters.
