you won't know till you try it but DON'T HACK WITH THE ORIGINAL DRIVE, if anything goes wrong you can always install the original drive back to the unit and use as normal,
purchase a larger drive and follow "the zipper" instructions as written and you should have no problems hacking it,
go to this website and read what "the zipper" does and go to "Rbautch hack script" linked on the left and read what that does,

GOOD LUCK

the usual places like best buy, circuit city, compusa, also depends how large of a drive you want, sometimes they have sales and rebates on the drives

Thanks for your help.

So can I use an ATA hard drive? Also, does the drive need an operating system? Is that included with the zipper?
yes any ATA or PATA drives can be used, I got a 200GB seagate drive from (outpost . com) when they were on sale with a rebate, they're not on sale now but check them every Friday for their weekly sales,
don't need any operating system, just go to that link and follow the steps as outlined and you should have no problems, if you do just go to the support thread's link on the site and they're(Gunnyman or rbautch) will help you out, really it's easy to do as many have already "zippered" the their units :up: :up: :up:
