I read in a how-to guide that I can't connect the 40GB quantum fireball LCT drive to my Win2K computer to examine the HD. My kids computer is running Win98SE that the guide says is useable, but I'm a little lost at trying to find good tools to ensure the HD is useable that I'm comfortable won't make it impossible to get a new TiVo image on the disk. I essentially have a few questions.
1. What tools should I use to test the hard drive's magnetic media to determine if the image can be ressurected or if the disk is salvageable for DirecTiVo use?
2. Can a DSR6000 image work on a DSR6000R01 (single drive)?
3. Since I didn't create a backup image, where can I find a useable image for my DirecTiVo
You can boot a computer with the MFS Live cd v1.4 without letting Windows load and check the TiVo software on the drive to a certain extent with it.

Since Maxtor bought Quantum and Seagate bought Maxtor you need the bootable cd image of SeaTools to burn a bootable cd with which you can run the manufacturer's diagnostics on the drive itself (ignoring the software on it).

Search this thread


for a DSR6000R01 image.

If you google "TiVo prom day" you'll find links to another TiVo-centric site (whose initials are DDB) which cannot be named here, and they have an image and slice begging thread you could search as well.

I know a little about hard drives, and about stand-alone TiVos, but if it's a question specific to satellite receiver TiVos, hope that classicsat drops by, 'cause I don't know jack about them.
