He only had 1 post, so he'll have to contribute a bit to earn the contents of that PM, if I understand the "minimum post requirements" rules correctly...
I'd suggest the more off-topic areas, like the coffee house discussion area, or happy hour threads. I think they count...
I think you only have to have 10 posts to send PMs, not to receive them. If I'm wrong about that please let me know.
I was able to get the PM. Thank you for the support.
I am having bad luck on DVDBARS with WIN7 x64 using admin controls. IEnumWbemClassObject::Next
Had issues with JMFS on my WIN7 machine. When booting the CD, it can't locate the controllers or something like that.
The DVDBARS would not see my original TIVO hard drive, so it must be junk. I popped in a new one and was all good (using XP)
I fired up the old XP and did not have any issues with either program.
The guided setup will have to wait until the weekend. Hopefully I am all set.
Once again, thanks for the support.
I stand corrected, since the new forum member has stated he RECEIVED it with post #2.
Glad you got it working. I wrote DvrBARS on a Windows 7 x64 computer, so that isn't the problem but I would like to make it a bullet-proof as possible.
That error is occuring in the subroutine that finds all of the hard drives using WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation). Is it giving you a specific error number? If the error number is something minor I can add a few lines to ignore it and continue instead of giving up.
I took the liberty to take a snapshot of the error, but I can't figure out how to upload from my computer.It's asking for a http: address. Anyway Error 0X80041013(2147749907) Hope this helps!
Thanks. It sounds like something is wonky with WMI on that PC. Here's what Microsoft has to say about that error:
2147749907 (0x80041013) COM cannot locate a provider referenced in the schema.
This error may be caused by many conditions, including the following:
Provider is using a WMI DLL that does not match the .lib file used when the provider was built.
Provider's DLL, or any of the DLLs on which it depends, is corrupt.
Provider failed to export DllRegisterServer.
In-process provider was not registered using the regsvr32 command.
Out-of-process provider was not registered using the /regserver switch. For example, myprog.exe /regserver.
MS has a WMI Diagnosis Utility at
I don't know if it will help but it might be worth a shot. Since this is the only report of that error so far I think I'll leave well enough alone for now.
I successfully upgraded my 320GB premiere to a 2TB drive and I kept the original 320GB drive as a backup.
I recently purchased a second premiere with a 500GB drive and don't really need to upgrade the hard drive at this time. If I later need to replace the drive in my second premiere can I use the 320GB drive from my first premiere to load a new hard drive and then run clear and delete everything to clear out the TSN?
I'm not sure if I should post my problem here, or start a new thread.
I got my new S4 Premiere, the one with OTA tuner in it and 500GB drive. I got a WD 20EURS drive. I connected the original from the Tivo and the WD to my WIN XT system and ran the program given at the beginning of this thread. (Don't remember the name) It did not recognize the 20 TB drive as such but as a 200GB and would not procede. So I got a 2TB Toshiba drive, connected, ran the program and that was almost 2 dys ago and it has only copied about 85000KB $ 917 KBT/Sec. At this rate it's going to take about 154 hrs or 6 1/2 days. It only suppose to take a couple of hrs. I didn't do anything to the Toshiba drive DT01ACA200.
What can I do to speed up the process ? Thanks for any help.
I'd start by trying a different PC. If it didn't recognize a WD20EURS correctly and the Toshiba drive is taking that long something is wrong with the computer or the cabling. I'd almost think that it's really old (like late '90s old) but they didn't even have SATA drives back then.
There's a new Windows program named DvrBARS that can copy the drive, but if jmfs (the program this thread is about) can't talk to the drive correctly you probably still won't be able to expand it into the remaining 1.5TB once the copy is finished. 500GB should only take about 2 hours to copy.
If you're in the wrong thread and trying to use WinMFS on a Premiere from Windows XP it won't work. You could still copy the drive with DvrBARS but you would need to download jmfs and burn it to a boot CD in order to expand the drive.
More details please.
Thanks for your advise. It is an older PC with RAID connections. That's where I got the drives connected to, but I do or did run the jmfs . I'll stop the copying and will try again with the WD drive.
P.S. I did stop the transfer, reconnected the WD drive and now it's working fine. It already copied more than the previous 2 days.
Keep you posted.
P.P.S. I'm up and running. Everything went well. At the first try I think I screwed up, I selected the 200MB system drive instead of the 2 TB WD.
I have a Premiere 2TB Elite with the hard drive going out. From what i understand the Jmfs Live CD is used going from a smaller drive to a bigger drive or am I am wrong?
I would recommend reading the beginning of this thread. If you already expended the original drive you should use it to copy to a new drive.
I did read the the beginning, It has this
Your original Tivo disk
New disk larger than Tivo's
Computer that you can boot from CD or USB
Jmfs Live CD
My tivo came with a 2TB hard drive but by the "New disks larger then tivo's" you would have to go larger then 2TBs. What I have read you can not go past 2TB hard drives.
You can use jmfs to just copy the disk, or to copy and expand when going to a larger drive. In your case it would just use ddrescue to "zerox" the drive. With a SATA connection that will probably take 8-10 hours.
If you don't have a lot of recordings, you could do a Modified Full backup to your PC with DvrBARS, then do a Quick restore to the new drive.
I got the GSOD followed by a constant rebooting of my Tivo Premiere DVR.
Sounds like this is a hard drive problem. I do not have the original drive, but I do have WD GREEN 2 TB drive waiting to be installed.
What's the model number of the Premiere?
Tivo Model Number is TCD746320
