Update: Alright, I got a little p***ed off at it after I posted my last message, and realized I hadn't tried to open up the hard drive itself, as ATK522 suggested.

I didn't have a phillips head screwdriver quite small enough for the super ubber-tiny screws, so I stripped one of them. Knowing that it doesn't work anyway, I said "to hell with it" and bent everything back to get inside. I then carefully pried at the disc itself, but it didn't seem to do anything, so I gave it all a good whack, and put it back together.

Welp, just for the hell of it, I connected everything, and I'll be damned, it worked. A bit slow at first, but after leaving on while getting a few other things done, it started to run pretty smooth. I guess one should just never give up, huh?

Anyway, even if it is working, I would like to find a new hard drive for it. The one in the player right now is pretty bent up, with a stripped screw.

Thanks to anyone who can point me in the right direction.
