I tried making one of these before i read this... i used superglue on the screen protector to hold it on and didn't wait for it to dry. My sansa fuze got super glued in the case (luckily, i got it out, unluckily, it melted a portion of it) :(

Nice! I made one similar a while back and they really work, mine has an ID clip on it so that I can attach it to clothing and it wont fall out of my pocket.

Wow. Turns out I made one for my 8Gb Zune last night before seeing this ible' The results:
you should write your own instructable for that. There isn't much zune stuff on intructables
Hah. I'll write one up when I decide to stop being lazy :P I just got a nice digital camera and my linux rig back up, so I just might.
i definately think you should create an instructable on that too.

Correction a crappy mp3 player that broke down on me in like 3 months.

your entitled to your opinion, but mine is still working perfectly, and has been for years, so my assertion that its great is still valid.
