I have put a Samsung HS122JC (120 GB) in my video ipod; it is not a
Spinpoint N2 (I think it is N1, but the information is pretty scarce);
I'm not sure that Spinpoint N2 is even available around.

The connector, by the way, should be ZIF (zero insertion force, I
believe), not LIF. And if you haven't checked it out yet, I think this
page would be helpful:
