D3349B sounds like the part number I found, yeah.  Last time I looked
they were around $100 each.  I'll admit it hadn't occurred to me to look
for HP *drives* still in their trays.  I'll give it a shot, if I can
find the right drive part numbers.  Thanks for the suggestion!

Partsurfer, huh?   I'll have to take a look at -- or for -- that ....
