OK. Looks like the quickest, cheapest way to re-function my webplayer is to copy the embed98.img to the DOC.
I've got an old 450MB HD that'll do fine. I loaded it as the slave on my desktop, sys'd the drive, and downloaded the img file and unzipped the DOC tools.
Now, my question is, what cable do I need to buy to connect the desktop HD to the webplayer's IDE controller? This has probobly been answered already, but I failed to find a definitive answer through a search on "44 pin." Also, cablesonline haven't responded to my email. I don't want to waste and time and/or money on buying the wrong part/s.
If someone could post URLs and prices, I'd really appreciate it. Anyone know if this might be something RadioShack might sell?
