    I'm not using my TiVo at my new place, and I'd like to use my 500 GB expansion drive on my computer. I plugged it in, and it shows up in the "Devices and Printers" window, but I can't find a way to access it or reformat it. Anybody ever done this? I'm using Windows 7.

    Yes, it is quite easy. Just go to Computer Management.

    You do realize this will hose your original Tivo drive, right? By expansion drive, I am presuming you mean an external or added internal drive.. leaving the orig drive in there.
