    I made a copy of my external hard drive using the program and have restored it but the tivo won't recognize the hard drive now

    Did you use the Full Backup mode? That's the only way you can copy an external drive unless you mount both drives at the same time and use the Truncated or Modified backup mode.

    not sure if this is answered elsewhere, but is there another program that could be used to upgrade to a 3T HD in premiere? (winjms maybe?).

    looking to get a couple of new HDs and trying to decide if I should just go for 2TB or 1 2TB and 1 3TB. I have oled 3s and 1 premiere.


    **I did see on page 91 or so on the -upgrade center- thread that the premieres can be upgraded now to 3tb/4tb using MFSTools 3.2
    here is that link in case someone else has this question.

    MFSTools 3.2 is probably your best bet, but there is also jmbach's 4TB Premiere thread.

    ggieseke,
    May I trouble you for a pair of images? I have 2TB upgrades to pursue on a 652160 TiVo HD and a 658000 TiVo HD XL, each with dead or dying existing drives.

    I doubt he has any of the Series 3 images for DVRBars, but I have them for WinMFS, but they are for use under Windows. (DVRBars is Windows also.)

    For which I will PM them.

    So great. Thank you, ThAbtO; I will gladly use WinMFS for my task.

    Should anyone care to additionally share TCD652160 and/or TCD658000 images in VHD format, I would be happy to experiment with DvrBARS also.

    Very cool group you guys have here! I am pleased to finally join in and take better advantage of this great resource, after years of only reading.

    What brand and model drive were you going to use?

    I am rolling with the usual, recommended, Western Digital AV-GP drives, in 2TB form. Specifically, I have the more recent WD20EURX.

    The linux program "badblocks" has been chewing on those disks since early yesterday, in preparation.

    You may or may not run into a problem.

    I used a WD20EURX in June of last year on a 648 or 652, did it with WinMFS, and it's still working fine, but this past week I tried 2 EURXs I'd just gotten and Windows and WinMFS can't see them, and 3 others here have run into the same problem.

    If you could get back to me with success or failure and all the info on the drive labels, I'd appreciate it.

    unitron,
    That's very interesting. I had an odd little experience with these to start with, where they were not recognized through my mains-powered USB/eSATA hard drive dock. They wouldn't even spin up. This, at multiple computers.

    Mounted internally on either of two computers, I had no issue, and set them to torture test as mentioned. I have not returned to my dock with another 3.5" drive, to check if maybe the dock's power prick has gone tired. Or perhaps the dock has a conflict with 6Gbps desktop-sized drives, which I hadn't yet discovered.

    Any chance you hit a snag similar to mine? Did you get to try your same EURX units internally? Or on a second computer?

    I will keep paying attention, and indeed report back on my outcome.
    -J.P.M.

    Tried on 2 different PCs, hooked straight to one of the SATA headers on the motherboard, and one of those PCs would have been the one I used successfully on a WD20EURX (which is currently working just fine in one of my S3s) back in June of 2014.

    So before these 2 go back to newegg, I'm going to write down the serial numbers and email WD and ask them what changed.

    I do so love having nearly $200 tied up during the Christmas shopping season. :( :mad: :confused:

    Newegg has the WD RED 6TB available for $230 until 12/29, with promo code ESCKNNT26.

    Note that promo codes can only be used if you've signed up for their daily email blasts. Of course, you can then unsubscribe at any time once you've bought what you need.

    The hard drive on my TCD748000 Tivo Premiere XL just died. I did not have a backup and need an image.

    If anyone can provide one, I would appreciate it.

    Thank you.
