Yes, yes it does. It _is_ possible to cram an 8mm drive into an H320
case, but that involved removing the rubber protection from around the
drive. Which might cause problems should you drop the unit (I've
dropped my h340 while running once a few years ago without any
problems - I expect that was due to the rubber protection). The other
problem with removing the rubber protection is that in order to fit
the ZIF drive and adapter in there, you need to cut away a bit of the
rubber anyway (at least on the H140). If there's no rubber to cut
away, then there might not be enough space to jam everything in
there...

I'm awaiting my dealextreme adapter to mess around with my h340 - does
anyone know a cheap source of drives (80gig+)?
