problem with mp3 player hd

Hi list. Well i guess this will teach me for bying what was claimed to be a
new drive for my mp3 player from Hong Kong on ebay. i'm having real problems
with it and would welcome some help.
My player is a h140, and for some time now, i've been having problems with
the drive. Its been really slow when accessing some files. So today, i
decided to move everything off it i could, and then do a reformat. I got
everything off the drive apart from around 1 gb. At that point the drive
started getting really slow when copying stuff, and eventually came up with
an error saying it couldn't copy a file because of a cyclic redundancy check
having failed.
So then I gave up on recovery, and went googling. The consensus on
misticriver.net and other sites seemed to be that I should reformat my
drive. So I went into the dos prompt and told it to format. The format has
now reached 85 percent and it has been stuck at this point for around 20
minutes. I think there is obviously a physical defect with the drive that
the format can't get past. I no obviously I should replace the drive, but in
the mean time what should i do about the format? i don't really want to pull
the USB cable out in case that turns my player into a paper weight
permanantly.
Thanks very much for your help.
Alex.
Oh just out of interest, does anyone no if anything came of that guy who was
going to get a load of IDE to zif adapters? as guess I might be needing one
now.
