    It may also be the power supply, the capacitors would need to be replaced if it hasn't already.

    yeah I have read many threads on power supplies, so I took an old pc and powered the drive with that and ran sata cable to motherboard with same results, it hangs up on "Welcome... powering up screen. Which led me to either bad drive or bad image. Just afraid of investing in new drive and stiil getting hung up on "welcome screen. Have you heard of any other issues that might cause a hang up on Welcome screen ? Maybe just have to bite the bullet and try brand new drive. Any suggestions on best drive for the buck for tivo HD and its programming ?

    Recommended is WD10EFRX or WD20EFRX (max) on Series 3.

    Most importantly is that it still has Tivo service, especially lifetime, since Tivo will no longer activate Series 3 but will continue to provide service for active units.
