I have also ordered a IDE/Zif USB connector so my plan is to connect the HD to Windows or Linux directly and format it from there. It seems (from what I had read on the Creative webpage) that formating it from within Windows with Fat32 is fine...

Will let you know if this worked..

seems that formatting the HD outside of the Zen is not quite the same. It is not recognized as a formatted drive with a working file system and Windows wanted to INITIALIZE it which I did not do.
Would be good to know if claere33 upgraded from a 30GB Zen because I seem to remember that they built them for a longer time and maybe their firmware was newer and supported larger drives. Next thing would be to use the 30 firmware on the 60GB Zen....if this even works?
