I have it in clone mode and the smaller drive in the slot labeled "source HDD" and the larger drive in the other slot. I pressed the button for a second and it just blinked the orange light for five seconds. Then, I pressed it for a few seconds and it started blinking the blue light for hours. It never made it past the left blue light. It seems like it should progress to the next one until the 4th, each indicating 25% complete. But, it never progressed. I pressed the button again and now the 25% blue light and the orange light are blinking.
Thanks in advance.
I just tried it with two old 1TB drives. Here's what works for me:
-Disconnect dock from the computer totally, power off.
-Switch on back to 'clone'.
-Connect the drives, power up the dock
-Once both drives have 'spun up', orange light in middle goes solid. It should not blink again.
-Press and hold the 'clone' button on front until the first blue light on the left starts blinking.
-Once it starts blinking, the cloning process has started. The first blue light should go solid at 25% completion, next blue light starts blinking, and so on. Once all four blue lights are solid, it's done. A 72GB drive should go quickly, less than 30 minutes.
-Once it completes, you'll need to use Windows Disk management or some partitioning program to expand the new drive to full size (it will be 72GB when the cloning is done, with lots of free space behind the first partition).
EDIT: The last step using Windows Disk Management or a partitioning program will not work on TiVo drives
. It's only useful for drives to be used in Windows.
