I looked all the way back through July and I only
found one specific drive model number that works and
it's an 80 gig Fujitsu drive (a bit out of my price
range). I didn't find any specific info on 40 or 60
gigs. I also found a link to a spreadsheet of
workable replacement drives, but the link is no longer
valid. If you could point me in the general direction
of such info I would appreciate it.
Also, any idea how I can quickly drain the battery to
fully charge it again? I can't imagine leaving it
running with the clunking can be good.
