The H1x0 series can support hard drives up to 127Gb in size, so the
largest the device could support is a 120Gb drive (the reason you can't
use drives larger than that is the the hardware won't support anything
larger than 127Gb, due to the way it employs Logical Block Addressing,
similar to the problems some computers encounter until their registry is
patched or their motherboard BIOS is updated). I'd be interested in seeing
how much a 120Gb drive for an iRiver would cost though, I'm interested in
upgrading mine but I understand that they could a CRAPload of money :/
