I don't know about your combination, but I remember not all SSD drives
being fully compatible. Search the forums for SSD mods, you might find
working combinations there. Also, it seems looking into could be worth a shot. I guess
you would need to apply that to Rockbox and the bootloader as well.
Try catching devs familiar with that on IRC -- I can't assist with
that further.

This has nothing to do with the OP's question.

This has nothing to do with the OP's question either. He already
managed to install Rockbox, but Rockbox has problems accessing the
drive. Besides, you don't need to use ipodpatcher on Mac OS X. We have
Rockbox Utility, and it supports OS X.

Please guys, read the problem first. If you don't understand it don't
answer randomly different questions.
