Default Zen Vision M 30GB revived!

So i wanted to post this here, and bring a bit of life back to this forum
My Zen Vision M 30gb of 8 years has been resurrected back from the dead!
First off I followed the instructions, and advice on the forum and picked the
Samsung HS12YHA 120GB HDD to use to replace my 30gb. I also went the extra mile to replace the battery and used the
HQRP 1500mAh Battery fits Creative Zen Vision:M MP3 (CS-DA006SL

I ran into a few snags at first, one was the ZIF cable in the new HDD, it's a tight fit so you gotta keep pushing it in until you can't push anymore.
The last snag was the firmware for the battery. The current version 1.6 wouldn't charge the battery and my vision m was not usable.

I was able to put my old battery back in, since that still worked, and downgraded from 1.6 to 1.5. When i tried to downgrade from 1.5 to 1.41 i was getting firmware failed errors. I was able to downgrade from 1.5 to 1.40.02 and the system works perfectly! (link to 1.40)

The battery on a full charge has lasted 20+ hours and well, i'm ecstatic that my baby has been brought back to life!

Thanks abi for all the help!
