seems somewhat unlikely.

you'd have to change out the whole transport system which in turn would probably have knock on effects that meant even more extensive changes

Being a 350 owner myself, I asked someone at Sony who would know and they said it's not possible to replace the drive. They are looking at some other possible upgrades such as having the 330/350 be able to use Memory Stick Pro like the F355 uses. They believe this can be done. Whether or not Japan will actually implement this in a firmware update remains to be seen.
