Thanks for your help so far - I was able to find them at mouser:

> One is easy - J3 is a 2x10 pin 2.54mm connector which is still common today.
> But it is higher than the usual connectors. It has a hight of 1.5cm. If you

Found too without keying pin but this is not important as I don't need one.
The thing is - the connectors in my housing on the board are kinda  
simpl. The ones
at mouser seem to be kinda complex with some sort of locking mechanism  
- I'm not
sure I need those, but I'm not able to find simpler ones. Maybe the  
locking spring
can be removed by me before installing them in the housing? I need to  
be sure that
I can remove the board from the harddisk without such a locking  
mechanism preventing
me from doing so....
