    What brand and model drive do you want to restore it to?

    I recently bought 3 TiVo series 2 units (TCD24004A, TCD24008A, & TCD540080). The 24004 & 24008 both have lifetime on them. The 24004 is completely working but the 24008 had a bad hard drive. That's why I bought the 54008, to use that hard drive out of that to use in place of the damaged one on the 24008. I used the backup tbk file of the 24004 on the 24008, but I'm getting the "hardware error" when I set up the Tivo. I'm using WinFMS and finally found an new image file for the 24008 (thanks to unitron), but when I try and restore it to the 54008 (80gb Maxtor drive), I'm getting "drive too small, you need 160217537 sectors". (It says I have 160086528 sectors on the drive). Does anyone have any suggestions? thanks in advance

    Use the 40GB 240 drive (after letting it contact TiVo and get up to date if it's not yet running the latest--for the S2-version of the TiVo software--I think it's 9.something) as the source drive and copy it to the 80GB drive with WinMFS and then expand.

    When you put it back in the TiVo it'll complain because of the TiVo Service Number mismatch--might say something about error 51--but it'll eventually sort itself out after some green screen.

    Thanks for the quick reply unitron! I have no idea how this happened, but I managed to overwrite the backup file of the 40gb 24004 drive, with the backup of the tbk file you uploaded & I DLed from dropbox. So now, I no longer have an original backup of the 24004. (I didn't have any shows, etc on it saved, since I basically got it to resell it anyway and keep the other one for myself). Tomorrow I'm getting a 120gb maxtor in the mail, so I'll try and put the 24004 tbk you upped onto it and see what happens. On a side note, when I did a back up of the original 40gb 24004, I did notice in the mfsinfo that it didn't have a tivo model # assigned to the drive . When I used your 540 tbk on the drive, the model # was assigned correctly. Maybe I backed it up incorrectly in the 1st place and that's why I was getting the hardware error?

    I wasn't talking about using an image file, I was talking about using the actual 40GB drive you currently have working in that TCD240040 or TCD24004A as the source to copy from onto the drive that's going to go into the 240080.

    I got the "green screen" error message and am going to replace my original Tivo Series 3 drive with a larger drive I have around.

    Does anyone have a disk image for a TCD648250B?

    Looking to install a two-year-old Seagate SATA drive: 750G

    Where did you get the image to copy to the new drive? I have an R10 image that might work. I'll send a PM with the link.
