I have a spare SSD HDD just laying around that im going to try to install. If anyone has any Tips or Ideas that may help with this, chime in please. By the way, i do know that its not going to be a simple plug and play procedure, i am going to have to do some soldering.

There is no sata connections on the circuit board, but is there a way to tap into it and mount a sata connector to work inline with the existing memory chip?

I think you can mount it on a usb/sata controller..Internally the eken have an usb port (wifi on it) its possible to split the port with a microhub

[quote author=jayrod link=topic=116.msg951#msg951 date=1274243072]ssds use multiple Flash chips inside them, so i dont think u could.unless the controller on the board is sata[/quote]i agree on this one.anyway, replacing the 2GB flash with a 32GB would be far easier and more useful, althou not modular (and theorically workable) as USB Hub+Sata2Usb+SSD drive.

Thanks for all the input guys. The ssd i have is a universal one, not from a netbook. Its an aftermarket Kingston ssd that i bought awhile back for testing on different sources. Makes ahuge difference in laptops, pc and i have also installed in ps3, xbox and Tivo's. All turned out succesful. I currently have a 250gb SSD in my laptop and this spare one is a 64gb. I am thinking of opening it up and see how the hardware is configured, maybe theres another way besides sata that i can get it to work. Haven't got my Eken yet but all my questions will bebetter answered after i am able to open it up and take a look at the tablet and the ssd. I will keep this forum updated.
