    Hi, I'm in the same boat as willie. My TCD748000 (Premiere XL) has unfortunately been overtaken by the "click of death" and is dead (can't be seen in jmfs, bios, etc.) with no backup. Does anybody have an image?

    Thanks!

    Argh, hard drive crashed on my Premiere TCD746320, and I never got around to making a backup. I would greatly appreciate access to the image that has been mentioned on this thread. Thanks!

    Previously, the only utility, JMFS, only does a drive to drive copy. This works with Premiere. There is no image for JMFS to use. WinMFS does not work on Premiere.

    Now, there is DVRBars, it does backup, restore from an image, but it does not do a drive to drive copy (yet).

    Hi TiVoholic,

    Thanks for the tips. My Premiere won't boot at all (stuck at "Welcome, starting up" and hard drive makes loud clicking noises) so I'm pretty sure the original disk is too far gone to do a drive-to-drive copy. So I think what I need is an image for my model that I can use with DVRBars and a new drive (I have a suitable drive) to get my TiVo back up and running.

    My hard drive also crashed on my Premiere TCD746320, and I never got around to making a backup. I would greatly appreciate access to the image that has been mentioned on this thread. Thanks!

    My series 2 just took a dump on me and I'm looking to rebuild a new hard drive.

    Difficulty : I only have macs at home.

    I can work around most of the problems with that - but I don't have a good backup image for a TCD240040.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction ?

    What is the size in GB AND the LBA number of the drive you intend to use to replace the original or current drive?

    I've got an 80 GB 240 image that might work.

    New drive is a 500 gig drive - I've a pile of drives here, so I can pick and choose. Everything from 320gigs to 1tb. The 240080 image will probably work.

    Irony is I have the original drive - however the OS on that drive is too old to recognize the wifi adapter - and I don't have a landline anymore to get it to dial home to upgrade....

    Hey all. I need help with my SD-H400. I used an image that was posted in this thread for my model, but when I use WinMFS it keeps freezing constantly when selecting the drive. When it does decide to select it. It ends up freezing towards the end of the process when restoring tivo image. I am not sure what is going on. I tried 2 different HDD's. If it's not bad sectors causing the problem what else could it be? Help me out guys please. I would appreciate a lot!

    Unitron, thanks so much for posting the above links to the for the TCD648250B!

    What would be the easiest way to setup a brand new 2TB WD AVGP HDD with the above image? I have a Windows 7 box that I plan to use to load up the drive.

    I am getting an S3 that was already upgraded to 1Tb using WinMFS and and contemplating which would be easier:
    1) Using the above image and loading it directly onto the new 2TB drive
    or
    2) Following Lussie's (Kevin's) helpful post in the 'Drive Expansion and Drive Upgrade FAQ Thread' and copy/expand the 1TB->2TB

    Since I'll be the new owner, I have no intentions of keeping whatever is on the unit. I want to start fresh with at 2TB drive in the easiest way possible.

    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    Found this on the WinMFS website..

    WinMFS - Backup / Restore
    (Truncated Backup to a file / Restore from a file)

    Pros:
    Very Quick
    Only Source or Destination drive(s) needed at a time.
    Cons:
    Recorded shows are not backed up

    Backup Steps
    1. Download WinMFS
    2. Unzip the File
    3. Setup your computer
    4. Double Click on the program to launch it.
    (If using Vista, right click then run it as an"Administrator.")
    5. Select Source Drive
    6. File->Backup
    7. Click on Start Button
    8. Wait ...
    9. All Done!

    Has anyone successfully tried this using the image Unitron posted above on a 2TB drive?

    TIA!
