Ok, I wasn't sure if my curiosity was answered well enough in other threadsd, that is why I am posting now. Has anyone tried extracting the 4GB MD and placing something else in? Like a 4GB CF Card? Is that possible? Is it feasible? And if it is all possible, then how much battery life could I save if I did this exchange? Would it void my Sharp warranty? Will the device still work the same?
yes, its been done, just search the forums. Someone did it with a 2Gb cf card

just note that opening up your Zaurus to replace the microdrive will void your warranty. i was planning to do that just before my c3000 died, so I am glad i didn't had time to do it yet because my c3000 is getting replaced by sharp japan. had i opened it to replace the internal microdrive with a fast 4GB CF, then sharp would had refused to replace my dead c3000. just something to consider before you go opening up your Zaurus.
but once i get my c3000 replaced, i will probably open it up to replace the internal microdrive with the 4GB CF which is why i bought the cf card in the first place. chances are that the new c3000 won't break for a while so i should not need to replace it again...

As far as i can see there is no way for sharp to know if you have opened your Z, there is no stickers or any visable indicators that it has been tampered with
, just somthing to keep in mind (from someone who opens his Z on a daily basis)
