Hello, and sorry for cross-posting

My questions are related to the following post:

So now my iAudio X5L's HD got broken and I would like to replace it with an
SSD, if possible. Does anyone know about any news related to this post? I also
have a iRiver H340 so I'm also interested about its status.

If it is very unlikely that these issues have been resolved, or if it is
likely that some new issues will arise, I will resort to an old HD. This is
because I'm blind which makes debugging these problems somewhat hard.

Does anyone know, if old IDE HD's can still be found somewhere?
