Is there a way to copy shows over from my existing drive?
Not directly (for now).
You can use the two-step method of copying those programs where the "do not copy" bit is not set to your computer's drive, then copy them back to the new drive.
Programs and movies with the "do not copy" bit set cannot be copied in that way. Most cablecos set the bit on everything except for those shows which are also available using an antenna (CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, CW, PBS etc.).
Reference post #2 for MFSR software.
I use 360 Total Security on my Windows 10 machine. It reports that all three of these links contain a known Trojan Horse virus. Am I doing something wrong? Has anyone else experienced this? Are there new links somewhere?
What Trojan does it indicate it is?
it says Trojan/HEUR/QVM10.1.Malware.Gen
I am not 100% sure but I think it is flagging it based on heuristic evaluation and not because of any actual virus detection. Heuristic evaluation looks at how the program "operates" and flags it because similar programs that are viruses operate in a similar way.
The programs are not a virus.

How does one do this?
It's a false detection, which hasn't been reported before. Microsoft Security Essentials, Windows Defender, McAfee VirusScan Enterprise, and Malwarebytes don't detect anything. Here are the MD5 checksums for all three files.
Any chance you can post a link to that 3A Amazon unit?
Sorry I'm late in replying, missed seeing this.
You can use either the (now discontinued and unsupported) free TiVo Desktop software or else pytivo. There may be others, but those two are what I've used. Use Google to find them, and there's a long pytivo thread here on tivocommunity.
Either one has to be installed on your computer, and your computer and tivo have to be on your home network.
Once you have the software running, use it to connect to the tivo to get a program list. Programs with the red circle and slash through it cannot be copied, everything else can.
Copy what you can to your computer, then connect to the computer from the new tivo/drive from the My Programs area, and pull everything back onto the new drive.
It used to be that when you were pulling shows back to the tivo, if the show didn't appear anywhere in the current guide, the tivo would not put the shows into folders but listed them as individuals. Don't know if that's still true, haven't done this is a long time.
I"m getting Error 0x00000020 (32) CreateFile in line 1237 (mfsr 184.108.40.206) or line 1223 (mfsr 220.127.116.11) on WD40EURX that was installed fresh into Roamio (basic) which had already been running ok on a WD20EURX and was updated to version 20.6.x (can't remember exactly, but has latest update).
I put the clean (zeored) WD40EURX into TiVo, power up, when Guided Setup starts I remove power to Tivo then remove the drive.
I put the drive on a free SATA port on an ASUS Crossfire V Formula-Z motherboard and boot up Windows 10 64-bit.
There are a few other drives installed -- Samsung 850 (boot drive) and a Samsung 830, and an old HGST 2TB SATA drive.
I have Norton Security but I have tried temporarily disabling it.
I am logged in as an admin and use Run as Administrator to launch mfsr.
I first tried 18.104.22.168 and got the error. Then I zeroed the drive, and tried mfsr again and no error -- it just told me there was no Roamio or Bolt drive detected.
I reloaded the zeroed drive in the TiVo and then tried again with 22.214.171.124 and same error (slightly different line number).
I will soon try it with a different computer (Intel NUC with only a Samsung M.2 NVMe drive and an 1 open SATA port.)
Any suggestions would be welcomed.
Error 32 is a sharing violation, which means that another application already has the drive open. I have gotten it if I was viewing the drive with a hex editor or some kind of drive utility.
Close any other programs that could be accessing the drive and try it again.
Perfect, thanks for the info. Something was latching onto all the drives, as I also could not eject any USB drives. I struggled a while to figure out the culprit, and eventually punted and went for the easy solution of booting into Safe mode, then it worked fine. I used 126.96.36.199 on my Roamio because there's an edit in your post #1 about that.
For anyone else needing to do this, the easiest way to get into Safe mode (especially on Windows 10) is to run MSCONFIG, set Safe mode as the boot mode and Windows will always boot into Safe mode until you run MSCONFIG again and turn it off.
Afterwards I just had to re pair the card with Comcast to get premium channels back (the Data ID changes when hard drive changes) and now I'm up and running again.
Thanks so much!
I would like to replace the OEM drive with an 8TB drive now that my 1yr warranty has expired. Do you have any recommendations? I think the best cost/approach is to buy a desktop drive in an enclosure and liberate the drive.
The Seagate Expansion 8TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STEB8000100 is available for $189 from newegg
The WD My Book desktop 8TB USB 3.0 external hard drive is available from Jet.com (via Dell) for 213.50 with their current promotional discounts.
I have not heard great things about Seagate, but the WD drive appears to be just a rebranded WD Red.
If anyone has experience with either of these drives, I would appreciate any feedback.
Its hard to tell what drive is in an external and may not yield the proper drive that is usable in a Tivo.
Look for WD red WD80EFZX or one that is not 7200RPM.
Yeah, they build drives for external enclosures nowadays - the drive lacks the SATA interface and instead terminates directly into a USB port. These kind of drives are unusable.
You also don't want to use the Seagate - those are SMR drives and while great for archiving data, they do not perform great in a DVR application.
Anyone know this for sure? My son has recorded EVERY Simpsons episode, and has been watching one per day since sometime in 2014.. I certainly dont want those 560+ shows to NOT be in a folder when I'm done, so that'd be a dealbreaker..
Easy enough to check. Transfer just two of the Simpsons shows to the TiVo, see if they wind up in a folder.
If not, there is still a workaround. You can use TiVo Desktop Plus (has to be the paid Plus version), create a folder on your drive called "Simpsons", and put all the episodes in there. Then point Desktop Plus to it under File...Pick Videos To Publish. A folder called Simpsons will be created on the TiVo, and anything put into that folder on the computer will upload to the Simpsons folder on the TiVo.
Quite likely pytivo has a similar function, I'm just not familiar enough with it to definitively say so.
This should be a separate thread, probably in the TiVo Home Media Features & TiVoToGo forum. It has nothing to do with MFSR.
