Our 3 year old Toshiba SD-H400 hard drive quit a couple of days ago. (stuck on Welcome, Powering up...). No warning, no power outages, no power spikes, no hacks, no recent software upgrades (that I know of), just wore out, I guess. Pretty pitiful life span for a disk drive, though. (I ran the Maxtor/Seagate utilities on it and after 99 bad sectors they said it was toast. )
Anyway, after searching the site, I think I can handle installing an image on a new drive. Got a new drive at Fry's ($60 for a 320Gb drive on sale, the 160Gb drive was $70. Both were way more than I needed, I just wanted the cheapest I could get that was 80Gb or more. Fry's doesn't even stock 80Gb drives any more...)
BUT, I cannot find an image for the SD-H400. A search of this site had a couple of old links that were of course bad, and I have called Toshiba support, who promised to have their "Tivo" folks call back, but so far they have not.
I certainly don't see the need to pay $20 for the Cakewalk service, since this is just a repair of my failed unit that I'm confident I can handle myself.
Anyone know where I can get an image?
