Subject: [OT]: Replacing drive in iHP-140

[OT]: Replacing drive in iHP-140

Slightly offtopic, but I guess some people here might have tried it...

I dropped my iHP-140 down a concrete stair the other day. Hardware wise
it seems to be fine - logic board, battery, all good. If I'm lucky I can
get it to boot the firmware and play a song or two, before the disk gives
up, so I'm guessing I need to swap it over.

Does anyone have any information that might be useful to me doing this?
My plan is to just open the thing up, take the disk out, and try to find
a replacement. My initial plan was to look up the disk name that USB Mass
Storage claims, being a TOSHIBA MK4004GAH. I found some people on eBay
selling these, but they appear to come in two different interface types;
having 50 or 68 pins.

Any recommendations on sources of replacement disks, or should I just try
my luck on eBay with what seems to match whatever I get out of my device?
