KingSpec manufacture SSD drive replacements specifically for the X40/X41 laptops, so it seems reasonable to assume that these will also be compatible with the Zen Touch. Spec here: http://www.kingspec.com/solid-state-...8pata-mlcj.htm
Can anyone see any technical reason why this drive would not work within the Zen Touch and if so, why?
I have successfully converted another Zen Touch for use with a 16Gb CF, but 64Gb CFs are a stupid price, which is why I am looking at SSDs.
They do, do a 64GB version of the X-Fi II, your dreams have come true:
