32GB SSD Hacked into a Zune 120

32gb flash zune 32GB SSD Hacked into a Zune 120

If it doesn’t exist why not build it? One of our readers did just that. Searching for a replacement hard drive for his old school iRiver H300, abi reader Andrew, decided to go with an SSD drive to avoid future hard drive failures. He was unable to find the proper SSD drive to replace the H300s so he looked for a broken hard drive player to marry with an SSD drive.

Not wanting to pay $300 for a new flash player, he wanted to go cheap and hack something cool together. He was able to dig up a broken Zune 120 and a refurbished SanDisk EIDE/PATA SSD drive for a total cost of $130 bucks off of eBay.

Want one? Andrew has made a nice detailed guide- you should be able to follow and make your own.

Small snafu. A silver bezel around the touch pad means it’s an 80GB model not a 120GB model. But’ It doesn’t make the hack any less awesome.

This is awesome. If my hard disk ever fails, I’m gonna do this.Since we’re on the the Zune 80/120 topic… I hope they fix AAC support soon!
