Hi Elk,
Unfortunately I cannot supply replacements. This is more of a 'self-help' forum. If you want to do it yourself then I'm afraid there is currently no image to copy back to a new drive. Several members are working on it, but until then you'll either have to use an official JVC repair shop (see AndyWilks on this board - he's an excellent start) or use the online documentation to diagnose it yourself:

Service manuals:

Drive info:

I wish you luck.
A.

Daveowen, I'd PM Andywilks on this forum to see if he knows what could be causing that. He's more of an expert than me.
