Well I'll start with aa update.

I got the replacement motherboard in the mail on Thursday and after installing it in my Zen my mp3 player is no longer a brick and it is now back from the dead! Although, literally 2 or 3 minutes after I had finished putting it back together, and as I was listening to some music, I dropped my Zen on the floor! Fortunately for me it didn't land on the screen, and however it landed, it didn't break again! That would have sucked... anyways.

Now regarding your idea about upgrading the hard drive, I have actually wanted to do that for a long time now! But I have had many questions and concerns that I wasn't able to find definitive answers for after searching here on this forum and online, and so I was hesitant to spend the money on something that wasn't a sure thing.

Maybe you might be able to answer some of my questions?

For the two Toshiba drives that you mentioned, do they have the exact same connector that the original 60 gig drive has? or would I have to buy some kind of adapter or a different connector ribbon? I've also read on this forum of people that said they had to "file" down some part of the connector, and that is not something that I would want to do.

Also, are those two Toshiba drives the same thickness as the 60 gig hard drive? Or would I have to somehow put a spacer in to prevent the Toshiba drives from moving around? And are those two drives the same height and width?

Also, do you have any suggestions on the best place to buy either of those drives? I know I can just search for them, which I have done, but I'm just wondering if you know of a particularly good place.

Anyways, those are my concerns I guess. If you (or anyone else) could answer some or all of them that would be amazing! If not, no worries!

Thanks again for your help!
