Default ZIF Connector broken 30GB version

Hello everybody,

My zen vision M (30GB) was not powering on since few months.
Today, I have decided to fix it !

After disassembling the unit, it figured out that the battery connector was not welded anymore with the motherboard.
I fixed this problem with my soldering iron ! :-)

But, during this intervention, I didn't care about the HDD connector and now it's broken...

What is the best solution for me ?
I would like to buy a new connector but it seems that it is hard to find it (serial number of the part is PBPD1580F01F0). Anyone know where I could find it ?
Or, should I change the HDD (with a larger size) with a different kind of connector ?

Thank you in advance for your help !

Either buy a broken zen and use for parts or contact some of the parts resellers below but I did not see them list the part. Try to shoot them an email or call to ask.

Thanks WalkGood,

The part is available at portatronics.com.
It is not visible on the web site but after contact with them (BTW, great communication) they can send me the part.

Just have to wait now.
