iRiver/Toshiba Drive Question

  1. Hi folks:
    This is my first post here, so please be gentle.

    I have an iRiver H-140 MP3 player. It has a Toshiba MK4004GAH 40GB hard drive, and it's full. Tos has come out with a 120GB drive that has the same case size: MK1214GAH. Okay, so it will FIT in my player but my question is:

    Will it WORK? I looked all over the Tos site and I get the specs on a n MK4006GAH, but no MK4004GAH and there is no way to ask them a simple question. BAD.

    So if any of you have experience upgrading MP3 players with internal 1.8" drives, PLEASE HELP ME.

    Can't you back up the iRiver H-140 MP3 player, and clear of it's hard drive? The 2 drives are both 40GB. They are interchangeable

    I Would But...

    I've RockBox'ed my player and I use it to play lossless tunes. It does, after all have a optical in/out and can store data files as well. So between FLAC (lossless) tunes and some gfx/data files (most of the space is taken with FLAC). By the way, if you haven't tried RockBox, you are really missing something good. Heck, I might even buy an iPod if it had a little better sound output (it would be like putting white wall tires on a dump truck).

    I've used an iPod and the sound was great... so are you going to get the 120GB?

    you should be able to remove the drive and clone it with proportional allocation. I don't see this being difficult, just time consuming.
