send me your C1000 plus US$450 and I will magically convert it into a 3100. in fact, I will even fit the case from a 3100.
step 1: receive C1000 and cash
step 2: buy a 3100, remove microdrive
step 3: send 3100 to customer, keeping the 1000 and microdrive
step 4: sell 1000 and microdrive
step 5: profit!
hahaha, funny as hell!
but seriously, there are a few chips missing on the C1000, but luckily it seems to use the same PCB so you could in theory solder those extra chips onto the board but it's so small and delicate, but most likely will damage the unit unless you are an experienced micro solderer. its probably cheaper just to get a real c3100 rather than converting a c1000.
have a look at this for a comparison of c3100 and c1000 on the pcb levelhttp://symzing.way-nifty.com/blog/2005/08/...c1000_fbd4.html
probably best would be to just get a c3100, replace microdrive with cf flash and use microdrive as a secondary removable cf card, or alternatively, sell microdrive and buy another cf flash so you get 8GB with no movable parts (assuming two 4GB CF flash cards).
