HOW TO – Add a 40gb drive to a Zune

Zune Top-1
This is interesting, iPodmods shows you how to crack open Microsoft’s new Zune and add a 40/60/80 GB drive (it ships with a 30gb drive) – only the 40gb one fits back in the case… [via] – Link.

Some other thoughts– I’m not sure what happens when you plug in a Zune drive in to a PC, it might mount, it might not (not sure yet) – the thing you don’t see in many of the Zune reviews and not on the Zune packaging (that I know of) is that the Zune, with a 30gb drive cannot be used as a hard drive at (called “disk mode” usually) unlike every other music player.
