    tivo started resetting all the time, did the scans and it failed all of them error 7. Went and bought a new Hard drive, unfortunately my desktop is old and olny has ide connections for Hard drive. What kinda of adapter is best? I'm a little over whelmed by the search results. I'm comfortable enough with the transfer process once this little hitch is fixed:)

    (clicking the picture takes you to their site)

    You just plug in the IDE cable and the power cable to 1 side of the adapter and the other side goes to the Hard drive. Since the Series 3 uses SATA drives, you simply remove the adapter when placing in the Tivo.
