RE: jbr15 v2 HD?

Hi Denis, have a look on ebay, any 2.5 inch laptop replacement drive will do
the trick. You'll probably struggle to get a new drive smaller than 20GB
though. Fugitsu, IBM/Hitachi travelstar, and Toshiba drives have all been
successfully used as replacements/upgrades. Generally speaking 4200 spin
speed will do the job, and will conserve batteries, however the new Western
Digital 2.5 inch drives claim that their battery consumption on their 5400
RPM drives is the equivalent of a 4200. A 5200 will definitely make the
unit boot faster, though the effect of putting rockbox into flash will be
greater still. Spin speed doesn't generally matter too much, as it spins up
whilst your music is playing anyway.

Hope that helps,

Rob

I think I have v2 of a jbr15.. Big fat rounded corners.

The other day my hard drive wouldn't quite spin up, the it did, then it mad
an awful clanking sound, then no sound. Now, no sounds at all, and seem to
not spin up.

Bad drive, I assume.

Any pointers on how to replace, and what low cost drive to use? Is there a
FAQ on this I'm missing?

Another 15-20gb drive is plenty big enough for me, so any pointers most
welcome!
