Wouldn't it be a good idea to give all platforms the ability to use
those large drives as soon as an easy to install PIN to ZIF adapter is
available? Beacuse without software support all iriver, iAudio,
Gigabeat and IPod up to 4. generation have a 60GB limit. Personally I
think it is a good idea, but sadly I am not capable of programming
