Go look on,, or even for
current prices. I'm sure there's other places to look, but these sites
give price comparisons from a large variety of online stores.

Also, don't forget to check eBay. Go with a reputable seller and you might
be able to find a good deal.

Subject: uh oh HD woes


I've done a really stupid thing and dropped my archos HD (sans archos
hardware) while fiddling with it. And now it goes <click> <click>
<click> <click> instead of spinning up and reading.

Does anyone have a spare HD or know of a good, cheap place to get a
laptop HD? I'm only looking for something small, between 5 and 15 Gb or
so... cant afford to get anything bigger :-(

Also... has anyone ever succeeded in getting data back off a physically
damaged drive? Would it be phenomenally expensive to get a data
recovery company on the job?
