    These units are basically the same, right? I know the 800 has the Firewire input on the front and the 400 doesn't. The 800 came stock with twice the harddrive space. Other than that, they're the same, right? I've got an 800, and waiting to pounce on a 400 with a blown hard drive.

    Will the 400 take the image from an 800 (or vice versa)? Has anyone tried this?

    I've heard this works. I guess the firmware sorts out the model type.

    I believe it is the same SW. When my HD died and I put a new one in, the image was the same for 800 or 400.

    A DRT 800 will work great with a DRT 400 image (never tested the Fire wire) and a As for the DRT 400 I never tried with a DRT800 image but it should work.
