Thanks a lot.
Jac0b You are expert of toshiba- is any way to change 20gb Mk2006GAL disk to MK8010GAH 80gb?

I know that 80gb's disk is 8mm but maybe It possible?

rockbox.org has a good page on this. from what I can see the MK8010GAH is a ZIF connector which the gigabeat F series doesn't use, it uses a 50 pin connector. You could use a MK8007GAH

The F20's backplate is sized for a 5mm disk drive, not an 8mm. So, the biggest drive you can upgrade to, without changing anything, is 40GB (MK4007GAL, 50 pin connector, 5mm).

If you can find a cheap F40/F60 (maybe a parts-only device on eBay), you can swap out the backplate to use 50 pin 8mm drive, like the MK8007GAH (if you can find the drive - it's very difficult to find one, even on eBay).

I just put a 30gb MK3006GAL in mine. It used to be a 40gb but it felt too bulky for me. I also have a spare F20 so I just switched out the backplate.

@ william7
If you want to trade your backplate for a 40gb one I'll trade you. Just PM me.

Well, I think it possible to put 8mm disk but without the rubber cover.

I wouldn't recommend taking off the rubber cover that gives it protection.
