Any laptop drive should work, although there is a bug that has been around
in Rockbox for some time that only seems to appear on Hitachi drives.
It's the famous Red Dead LED, and it seem to occur when the drive is
shaken or vibrated in certain ways. People report it while driving, while
walking, or during other activities.

If I were buying a drive, I would probably avoid a Hitachi. If you are
looking for 60GB, had a pretty good deal on them a few
days ago, it might still be available. I think they were Toshiba drives.
