    I have two (2) HD XL (150hrs) Model TCD658000. I think the hard drives might be going bad. I get reboot lockups and gray screen. The capacitors look good. I copied the hard drive images a few years ago after getting the units using WinMFS.

    What WD hard drives are compatible? I read warnings about WD green hard drives. All of the threads I read are a catch all and out dated.

    I would like advice on what 1TB hard drives to get and will WinMFS restore the image to a new hard drive without any problems?

    Go ahead and get a WD20EURS AV 2TB drive, you'll do much better GB/$ wise, it doesn't have Intellipower enabled, runs cool and quiet.

    Check the prices at newegg and Amazon.

    I'm running one in a regular S3 HD and lots of other people here are using them in all three S3 models and Premieres as well.
