Where can I find a cheap ZIF to USB adapter for an old iPod hard drive? Answered

I have the hard drive out of a friend's 80GB iPod Classic. I don't know if it still works: the iPod didn't turn on after he dropped it in the toilet, but I found a scorched IC on the main board. The cheapest I've found is $7 on eBay, but I don't want to waste $7 on a drive that may or may not work. Any suggestions for where to get one even cheaper, or how to test the drive?

You could google, find out which contacts are for power, and make shift a way to power the drive, if you hear it start up, might be worth investing in the hdd adapter.
