Default Booting issues. Dead hard drive?

I had a bit of this in another thread, but I'll just summarize it here. I hope there is still help for my ZVM 60gig fatty, because I've only had it 4 months.

Basically I had battery and charging issues. After replacing the battery I still had some USB charging and windows recognition issues (though it charged from an adapter) and eventually I got it to recognize windows enough to do a firmware update.

In addition to that, it shows the "creative" screen, and then the "zen" screen and then just black. I had hear the hard drive doing it's thing and I've run format and clean-up on it and didn't get any errors (although when I ran clean-up the first time on a half full drive it got to 96% and sat there a REALLY long time before finishing).

I was thinking about replacing the harddrive with with one of the IPOD ones (which you can find on ebay for about $60).

I'm wondering if it's worth it though. Does it sound like there are more issues than just a dead harddrive? Is there any way to be sure before I potentially waste even more money??

Thanks so much!!!
