Default Zen Neeon drive swap

Hello everyone.

My girlfriend's Zen Neeon recently displayed the deadly drive clicking, slow response, general death symptoms. I had my old Micro laying around, so I wanted to try and swap the drives. Well, I have everything apart, but the Neeon isn't cooperating. I've been told that simply dropping in a new drive, plugging in the usb cable, and holding down the play/pause button should force it into recovery mode - but that never happens, it just sits on the creative screen for hours. I've tried getting a dd (linux disc dump) of one of her friend's Neeons - again, no go. If I put in the old drive, it clicks, whirrs, and bangs along until it gets to just past the flashing colored LED's, then it dies with a filesystem error (can't get recovery mode there either).

If anyone has ANY ideas, please let me know. I'm stumped.
