Advertisements Couldn't find any info in any other thread...by my DVR Expander started showing signs of of impending failure on Saturday--freezing during fast forward among others. I rebooted my Series 3 and lost everything on the external. I tried again and the S3 simply refused to do anything with the external drive. I went through the painful "divorce" and my S3 is working fine with the original internal HD. I purchased the WD drive back in Sept direct from WD and registered it online. WD has a one year warranty on the Expander so I'm getting a replacement but I'm wondering how others have been doing with drive life.
