Replacing HDD... Want Comparison Input

Hello all -

I picked up a broken 6th gen iPod Classic 160GB with a dying HDD. I'm currently evaluating the best source for a drive, and found this item:

This is an external USB adapted 1.8 HDD 250GB. I'd like to know if anyone knows if this is a ZIF adapter internally (planned on dismantling and using the drive). The rest of the specs seem ok... Input?

Is this a good question?

Hi all - I unfortunately, I opened up this drive to discover it did not have a LIF/ZIF board to a USB adapter. The board is direct to USB aparter. Anyone have an idea where I can get a board that will power and drive this drive but connects via ZIF. I can't get an adapter as there's no room in the iPod for that... Thanks

The Samsung-HD Spinpoint N3U HS25YJZ is inside the s1 mini and should have a LIF 40 connector (thats what i found out in the short time)
