Thanks for all the help I really appreciate the advice. I want to try and do this the cheapest way I can and i feel that if I take it to rr I will be charged at least 200 dollars for the repair ( 100 for hard drive 100 for labor). From their site in the zune 80 sections their is a 120 gb hard drive upgrade for zune 80. it is for both zune and ipod which makes me believe that the one on amazon will work for zune since people have put it in their ipods. Also the tool kit can be seen on
for about 2 bucks. I know the easy thing would be to just send it in but if I am going to pay that much I might as well buy something new and I wouldn't go with a zune after it went out right after warranty. I am a huge fan of zunes over ipods thats why i want to presurve the life of my zune. I appreciate all the advice and help.
Edit: I bought the drive from amazon that i have linked. Along with a opening tool. It was fairly easy to do with tutorials on youtube. I installed a 120 gb hdd in an 80 gb zune it did not require any special fiirmware it still comes up as an 80 gb zune but when you look at the space it shows the 120 gb.
