Any luck with your mod? I acquired my muvo2 shell and was able to
successfully repace the HD with a 1 GB Sandisk CF card. I couldn't part
with my Studio 10 and my Rockbox, so now I have two. The muvo2 is for
applications when I really shake it up, and the JB is for everything else.
With 1 GB, the muvo2 is like a 12 CD changer that I fill once a week from my
JB storehouse. It works great. Hope you have good luck as well.
