    More like, what Tivo models have interchangable drives.
    Bolts will erase the drives if they are swapped.

    Can you give more information on what you are asking?

    I have a TiVo Premiere 4 TCD750500 that is locked in the clearing data mode. TiVo suggested to restart and when the amber flashing light comes on, press enter until it is solid, then the green light should flash, enter 7,6,5,4,3,2,1,0 the erase drive. But after making the amber light solid, the green light doesn't flash. The amber goes out and the green stays on. Yes I am in the IR mode on the remote. So I was wondering if another Premiere 4, but different model would work as a replacement.

    Never heard of a green light flash. When powering up, just hit the Pause, then the numbers. If happy the amber & green will flash back & forth. Not all numbers work.

    KS 57 has helped other Premiere users in the same boat. You could use another TCD750 model drive but would have to do a Clear and Delete Everything to marry the hard drive to the TiVo which might put you in a similar situation (and again KS 57 might help).
