Default Zen W hard drive replacement

Hey everybody! I've got a zen w with the hardware problem from my previous thread & I would like to know a few things; first, would replacing the hard drive fix my problem and if so, would a Toshiba MK3008GAL 30GB 4200RPM 1.8" ZIF Hard Drive be compatible with my zen w?

If you need to know what my exact problem is, you can check out my previous thread: "Zen Vision W Predicament"

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I believe those drives will fit. As long as its single platter(which a 30GB usually is) then it will work.

Hmmmmm...ok. Sounds good, but I still don't know if it will solve my "firmware problem". I've tried the disk cleanup, & I can't even connect it to my computer to reload the firmware & Ideally, I really don't want to spend money unnecessarily. Thanks for the help though

You could always try a zif to USB or SATA cable. Plug it directly into your PC to see if it recognizes it like that.
