Yep, you need to replace the hard drive in the TiVo. You are experiencing the early stages of a hard drive failure. Check out the Upgrade forum here for more help.

Thannks a lot - I was afraid of that...how hard is it to "burn" a new hard drive if I buy one off the shelf..I see that DVRUpgrade sells some already "burned"...I am fairly computer literate..not sure how the cd image i need to put on the new TIVO drive gets there...I have installed a replacement modum connected to the serial port and set some setting there?? Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

If you're at all tentative about this, you can buy pre-imaged drives specifically for your model from weaknees.com. For a newbie it's the easiest way to go.
