Subject: Replacing my hardrive in ihp140

Replacing my hardrive in ihp140

From: Dave Wright <gymnastdave_at_sbcglobal.net>
Date: 2006-05-28

Hi,
I am currently attempting to replace my harddrive in my ihp140, due to a CRC
error with the drive. Before I attempt to take upon myself this task, I have
a few questions which would help me to get started. First, which drive size
should I use for the ihp140? SEcond, what is the harddrive capacity
limitation for this kind of device and rockbox? Third, are there any
instructions as to how I would go about replacing a harddrive on an iriver?
Finally the most important, I'm blind, so has any other blind rockbox users
attempted to replace harddrives in iriver devices? If so, any advice would b
much appreciated.
Dave
