    Thanks for that. :up: Actually this thread should have died a while back. The place for current discussions of recommended drives, upgrades, etc. is the Official eSATA Drive Expansion and Drive Upgrade FAQ sticky thread. It has everything anyone needs to know about upgrading TiVo Series3's, HD's and HDXL's including recommended hard drives and Section V covers internal upgrades.

    Congrats and enjoy the game!

    FYI, the WD10000CSRTL is the retail version of the WD10EACS which does NOT work as an internal hard drive upgrade on the Series3 due to a soft reboot issue. However it will work fine as an internal hard drive upgrade for the TiVo HD or as an eSATA drive on the Series3 (or TiVo HD w/modifications - see first post of the Official eSATA Drive Expansion and Drive Upgrade FAQ sticky thread for more info.).

    For a couple of dollars more, the recommended WD10EVCS will work as an internal or eSATA hard drive with all models. It's designed for DVR use and is quieter.

    Seems like forever ago when I actually paid $259 for a 1TB drive...but it was just a little over a year ago. Sigh. :rolleyes:

    I've been seeing WD10EADS drives lately (appearing at even lower prices). Anyone know if these will work in a TiVo HD?

    Yes, the WD10EADS is succesfully being used as an internal upgrade in TiVo HD's by several TCF memebers. Me? I'd spend a few dollars more and get the recommended WD10EVCS which is a DVR dedicated hard drive and skip the AAM adjustments, etc.

    A visit to the Official eSATA Drive Expansion and Drive Upgrade FAQ sticky thread is in order. It has everything you need to know about upgrading your TiVo including recommended hard drives and Section V covers internal upgrades.

    TiVo Series3 owners should note per the sticky,

    Thanks! Yes I've used many WD10EVCS in the past and they work great in HD and Series 3 . I'll stick with them.

    Hello... I'm new to Tivocommunity and plan to become active on the board.

    For what it's worth... I just upgraded and replaced my Tivo HD 160GB drive with a 1TB Green Western Digital WD10EACS-32ZJB0.

    I purchased the drive OEM from microcenter's retail store in Westmont, IL for $94.99.

    I used the Fujitsu disk management tool to change the AAM to 128, and used WinMFS.

    My unit is operating perfectly without issue now for over 6 days!
