    Thanks, unitron! I had tried your 24008A image earlier but the only IDE drive I had lying around was an 80GB WD and as you mention in an earlier post your Maxtor is a bit bigger and the image doesn't fit.

    I tried the 140 image and I was glad to see when it went to "Just a few minutes more" :) It then went GSOD and said it could take three hours to sort out the problems but after 10 minutes or so it moved on.

    I'm running the guided setup now. Thanks again!

    Do you already have a DropBox account?

    Are you looking for the entire image or just for the kernel?

    Did you search the entire site in general, or this thread in particular?

    (I realize the title of this thread is bit confusing and off-putting. Originally, long enough ago that it's now in the archives, there was a thread entitled "Need an image? PM me", and this is the replacement for that.)

    I searched the whole site but I keep getting, for instance. I searched for replace a bad tivo hard drive and I get this message. Every time.
    The search term you specified (a) is under the minimum word length (2) and therefore will not be found. Please make this term longer.
    If this term contains a wildcard, please make this term more specific.

    When I searched for the image I had to enter it about 5 times exactly the same before it worked.

    I now have the image I have replace and upgraded drives in the past but its been 2 years or more. However I have never replaced a bad drive with new hard drive and image. My software is very old. Can I do this with the latest mfslive?I

    I could buy the latest instacake but it says IDE drive and this one is a SATA, does it matter.

    Yes, the current MFS live CD and WinMFS both still work with the Series 3/Tivo HD models.

    Don't waste your time (and money) with InstantCake.

    It depends on what you put in for the search, "TCD648250b" may not get you the right results, but simply "648" may.

    The link I provided to my previous post has two links in it.

    One is for an image you can restore to a drive, new or used, as long as it's at least 250GB, using the MFS Live cd. That one has the .bak file name extension.

    The other, with the .tbk extension, is for use with the WinMFS program.

    If you aren't familiar with it, while you're at mfslive.org refreshing your memory about how to use MFS Live, you can also read up on WinMFS.

    If you mean your software is old because you're still using the old MFS Tools, then while you're at mfslive.org download the .iso file image of MFS Live v1.4 and burn it as an image to a cd and use that instead.

    How dead is the drive which you are replacing?

    Have you hooked it up to a PC and run the manufacturer's diagnostic on it?

    Are you certain your TiVo's power supply isn't suffering from "capacitor plague"?

    I upgraded my S2 Tivo (TCD540040) about 8 years ago with 2 hard drives and one of them just went bad, the master is ok. However, the Tivo will never boot up now it just hangs at the welcome screen. Do I need to reimage my main master hard drive or is there a way to get around this?

    If I need to reimage where might I find an image for this unit? Many thanks!

    Up at the top of this page is "Search this thread". Search for "540".

    Thanks but it looks like the links to the 540 images are no longer functional.

    This is a problem because I think that permanently hosting of TiVo images may be illegal, many of us have all/most of the TiVo images (I do) but other than sending a CD or setting up a Drop box file and than give you the link by PM (I just started a Drop box account and I am still not to good at using it or setting it up for single file access) I don't know if a permit way to get old TiVo images exist or could exist.
    The other problem would be if sending a TiVo image was illegal and you were a shill, boy would I be in trouble because as we all know "no good deed goes unpunished".

    Understood, so is there a way to extract the information from my original master drive? As I mentioned, only the slave drive crashed, my original is still intact. Thanks.

    Maybe dumb question but could I get this from Tivo? I mean I'm not trying to do anything underhanded, just repair my device.
