funny you mention that, back in the day, these drives were over $500, and you couldn't find them, people would buy the ipod mini for like $450, crack it open only to harvest the micro-drive and put it on eBay for a $50 or so profit

Probably not with free shipping though.
With Shoprunner, it's always free.


Too bad Shoprunner cancelled my account last year because I placed too many Newegg orders in a short period of time. With all the FAR stuff from Newegg lately, be careful not to overuse Shoprunner.

I highly doubt that was the reason. I've done many, many orders via Shoprunner (Newegg, TRU, drugstore.com, etc)...and never an issue.

They probably just caught onto your multiple accounts..

THE COMMENTS ARE WORTH MORE THAN THE DRIVE

I forgot about US robotics
and I own an IBM pc from 1984 !

Could, but as someone who just dropped a $30 32 GB CF card in his 2nd gen Mini (along with a new battery - they still used easy to disconnect plugs back then) there are better ways to upgrade your mini that don't leave its capacity absurdly low. I like the looks people give when I use my "retro" mp3 player.

Lol, thanks to poster below for reminding me of the dot-com bubble. Flooz and Whoopi goldberg commercials.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flooz.com
Users accumulated flooz credits either as a promotional bonus given away by some internet businesses or purchased directly from flooz.com which then could be redeemed for merchandise at a variety of participating online stores. In 2001, Flooz.com was notified by the Federal Bureau of Investigation that a Russian organized crime syndicate was using Flooz and stolen credit card numbers as part of a money-laundering scheme, in which stolen credit cards were used to purchase currency and then redeemed. Levitan has stated that fraudulent purchases accounted for 19% of (Flooz's?) consumer credit card transactions by mid-2001. The company announced its closure on August 26, 2001, perceived as an early indicator of the growing dot-com bust. Upon the company's closing, all unused flooz credits became worthless and nonrefundable. Over its short history, flooz.com reportedly exhausted from $35 to $50 million in venture capital.

I have of one these in my Dell Axim X51v PDA along with a 4GB card in the SD slot. It does affect battery life since it's not solid state, but you can fit a lot of Napster MP3s on it. I paid $400 for mine, but I was able to use $200 in flooz so it was only $200 out of pocket.
