    Thank you very much. Trying to create a drive using WD5000AAKX and getting a mode 1 error in winMFS. Any ideas?

    I suggest a Red WD drive. You cannot just use any drive on Tivo. Settings like Intellipark, 7200+ RPM and stuff. The power supply would not support the higher RPM drives.

    Trying to fix a HD on a TCD652160, that of course originally had a 160, but now appears to have a 400. It gets stuck a clear and delete, and my USB Data cable isn't recognizing the HD when it is plugged in to a USB to SATA external connector. Worked before, not sure why not. I would like to request an image that is more current than the one I saved as a truncated backup over 5 years ago, and a possible suggestion as to why this old Dell 4500 with Windows xp doesn't seem to recognize the external data connection. I think it worked in the past.., Thanks for image, Tom

    edit: just remember I didn't ever use those non powered usb to data cables. I used an old enclosure that was laying open and it is working, I can recognize the drive and restore from a very old 160 BU , truncated. But I would think a fresher one might be safer..., THANKS

    It should not be recognized by Windows or everything would get erased by Windows Disk manager. It should only be recognized by the program used specifically for the purpose (WinMFS) under administrator user.

    I followed the instructions to the tee on a brand new WD 1 GB Blue, verified the the imaging took, installed new drive in Tivo and I still get the endless "powering up" screen. Could it be my HD? I've not known other things to go wrong in older Tivos.

    Ideas?

    Yes, the drive either is consuming more power than the PS can supply, Intellipark and HDAT can be an issue.

    Recommended drive is WD Red (not pro, 7200 RPM) because of those features. Series 3 can use up to 2 TB.

    Power supply? Bad capacitors is a common issue as the S3 OLED/HD models get older.

    Trying to resurrect an old TCD652160 with its original drive (wd1600avbs) after the upgraded drive failed. Sadly, I erased the original drive so it doesn't seem to just plug and play. Can anyone share the drive image I would need to start anew?

    Thanks,
    Soby

    Hi, my upgraded drive on my TCD652160 failed after many years and unfortunately, I no longer have the original drive. Can anyone point me to the drive image and the easiest way to install on a blank drive? I did the drive upgrade myself a long time ago with but am not an expert by any means. Thanks in advance.

    Sadly, my hard drive died with the software corrupted, and I was all set to do a WinMFS restore using an 652_gset.tbk image file I found years ago, only to have an immediate "Not a valid backup file!" stare right back at me.

    If anyone could send me a fresh TCD652160 image, I would greatly appreciate it!
