Unhappy AV700 HDD upgrade

PLEASE please PLEASE someone tell me categorically, how to upgrade the HDD on a Archos Av700 (non-TV). I have a couple of 40Gb ones which are just too small. I have a 250Gb drive of the same type (IDE, 4200rpm), but it doesn't identify it. in theory I should be able to go to at least a 100Gb, as they make a version such. Perhaps I Can format the drive and copy the OS-files to the drive on my PC? (first) then pop it in the AV? I've been trying to do this for ages, and had no joy. The old disk was a Hitachi Travelstar HTS424040M9AT00 which everyone knows are crap. The disk I'm trying to use is a WD 250Gb IDE
