    I'm trying to upgrade my 320GB drive to a 2TB drive using the Linux boot CDrom. I'm doing this on a laptop with the destination 2TB drive in an eSATA enclosure and the original drive connected via USB-to-SATA adapter. I get as far as Copying the contents; this runs for 8-10 minutes, then it errors out with "Input source disappeared". Has anyone seen this before? I can't seem to find anything about it. Thanks!

    Both need to be connected sata only.
    Use desktop computer
    without enclosure.
    Otherwise you'll be in an endless loop of
    Failures. won't work with laptop with
    Either USB to esata or just USB .
    copies bit-by-bit. All shows, settings,
    And season passes, are transferred.

    There's another sub-forum here that
    Can help if you run into further issues
    after copying.

    Good luck

    As was stated, only JMFS will work for Premiere and newer drives. I would think that you can connect via the USB because the older SW allows that and I believe that JMFS is based on the older SW.

    I would make sure that you disable power saving while you are trying to copy the drives - sounds like it might be shutting devices down due to inactivity.
