    Hey Guys

    I used to own a Zen Jukebox and to upgrade the disk yourself was a very simple procedure, simply put in a new 2.5" ide disk and flash the bios.

    I have now got myself a Vision:M, does anyone know if I can do this on this little gem of a box?


    Thanks!:thumbsup:

    Lol, I've only just bought mine and there's no way I'll be trying that for some time! :D

    Isn't 30GB enough Monty?

    Hey Dude,

    not when I have an 80 in my old Jukebox!

    Plus, start putting a few good programs on there and *wam* wheres all my disk space gone? :D

    Seriously though, the screen is bonza at the gym for the cooldown on the bike. It sits nicely in the book holder and is perfect eyelevel - watched the latest episode of BSG whilst "cooling down" last night :thumbsup:

    No. It doesn't use a 2.5" drive. You should however be able to replace it with a single-platter 1.8" drive.

    I was thinking that now I'll be putting video on mine, that 30GB will get used up so quickly!

    There's a new site made just for Creative owners, with lots of other Vision:M owners including myself. There's a lot of helpful gudies and discussions there. If anyone wants to join up in this fast growing community go to http://www.epizenter.net/

    Cheer, that's helpful! There seems to be a lack of forums for Zen owners out there!
