What would happen if, when you are recording, you set the disk spindown to
the maximum, 245 seconds? Would you get far fewer drive sounds, but give up
something far worse?

Hi Aditya,

If you're handy with a soldering iron: yes. What I did is take the
microphone out, wire it internally to the tip pin of the digital in/out
conector (not sure if it's in or out - never use it), and connect the
microphone to a 3.5mm connector. Works fine this way, same quality, but no
hd noise. Be sure to scratch the connections on the pcb to the digital i/o
connector though, and be sure to choose the tip pin to avoid potential
short-circuit, etc.
Note, this is for Recorder V1; Recorder V2's don't have digital I/O so
you'd need another solution here.
