Default Let the Mods Begin


"We have found that the Zune battery is the same as the iPod Video 60/80GB battery. We can start upgrades for existing Zune customers now. We have also found that the new ZIF drives from Toshiba will work in the Zune players. You will be able to upgrade your 30GB Zune to a 40GB right away. We have not found a way to insert the 60GB or 80GB drives yet, as the back panel would not fit back on if we did this."

Ready for a larger capacity Zune?  I hope you're handy with an X-Acto!  iPodMods has been busy tearing apart the Zune in an effort to supply us with replacement parts and upgrades.  So far they have been able to install a 40 GB hard drive as well as an extended battery.  Theoretically you can also upgrade to a 60GB or 80GB drive as well, but because of the extra thickness of these drives, you cannot snap the case back together.  (What good is all that extra thickness to the Zune case if you can't squeeze in a little bigger hard drive?)   So if you simply have to have a little extra storage or batter life for your Zune, head on over the iPodMods Zune pages and check out their offerings.

Update:  Zune-Online has a screenshot of a Zune with a 80GB HD.   Now if they can just get that cover snapped back on!
