You can re-use the drive physically by overwriting it with a 652 image (assuming that the Series 2 drive is at least 160GB). None of the existing settings or recordings on the drive would be preserved.

The drives are different, Series 2 use PATA/IDE, and Series 3 use SATA and would need a PATA->SATA adapter. Otherwise it can if it had the appropriate software and larger drive (minimum 160GB of the S3.)

Does the 652 have a subscription currently?

If not, there's not much point in trying to get it to work.


If all you need to have a working, subscribed 652 is a 160GB or larger working SATA hard drive with the 652 software on it, I might be able to help you out.
