The lid might physically fit, but you would have to make some special modifications to make the car reader work by somehow tieing the card reader into one of the USB ports.

It would be far easier just to buy one of these and be done with it:

Thought so, was hoping the slots for the ribbon cables etc were still on the 160gig model board, Thanks
