Default Replace or repair?

I have a somewhat ageing Zen Sleek (not the photo version) and it's starting to drive me insane. I love it when it works, but more often than not it's locking up.

I've tried formatting, installing updated firmware etc, but to no avail. It tends to happen the majority of the time when it's on random play all (usually less than 3 songs into it's random play), but it has been known to do it when it's just playing an album.

I'm not sure if it's a hard drive issue (which might explain the random play all lock ups) or if it's a battery issue (which might explain the sometimes completel nonsense the battery meter displays and the fact it says Low Battery when there was 2 bars just 5 seconds before).

If it is either of those, would it be worth my while getting a new battery and harddrive? Would I be able to up the hdd size? Would it be economically viable to do so? Or, more depressingly, is it neither the HDD or battery and something much more terminal?

Ideally, I would keep my existing player because there is nothing else on the market that I really want or like. I love my mp3 player because thats all it does and (when it's not locking up) it does it damn well.

The floor is yours, ladies and gentlemen. I await your verdict and my music listening future lies partly in your hands.
