OK, two questions.
1) The unit still mostly plays files just fine. Is it DEFINITELY a hard
disk problem or could it just need reformatting? Is there a way to test
this out?
2) If the drive needs to be replaced, a sighted person tells me that the
pictures of hard drive replacement look extremely complicated. Is this
true, and if so, are there places that will do this for you for a reasonable
price?
