   Yeah, I have the same problems with hard drive space.  I did manage to
   get a 1.2 gig one but haven't put it in yet.  It still works fine but
   no room for any sizable software on its tiny drive.
    I always wanted to put the "adapter" in but never really following
   through in getting one.  I've seen some things on eBay but not sure if
   they are the "correct" ones for this purpose (seem to be just connector
   adapters but I could be wrong).

   My pack is totally dead, won't even take any charge.  Darn thing is
   "welded" shut and has refused to open neatly with all my attempts.

   As far as the video, I just thought it might be cheaper for them to do
   that and easier to upgrade to color.
