Default Confusion with connectors

So my HDD died (Seagate Lyrion ST18.1 60 GB) and I got an offer for a cheap Toshiba MK3006GAL 30 GB. The problem is that I'm not sure which connector or adapter I need to make this work.

The Toshiba looks like this:



And my player has something like this:



I guess I need a ZIF to IDE adapter, right? Where can I buy one and how much does one cost?

Searching the forum wasn't really helpful since ZIF, IDE and other acronyms are too short to get results.

Thanks. What's the name of the connector, is it proprietary or can I get it in a store, because eBay isn't really good for me. The shipping alone will cost me more than the drive.

Where are you located?? No you can not buy in a store that I'm aware of. There are other sellers that should have the connector for less. http://cgi.ebay.com/Creative-Zen-Vis...item414f6d7c53 I just wanted to show what it looks like. BTW you can probably get a drive for the connector you have for about the same price or a little more.
