    I hope someone can help with some ideas or suggestions.
    My TCD648250B got the yellow screen last week and my first inclination was that the drive went bad. t removed the drive and tried testing but couldn't even get it to spin. I went out and I bought a WD 1TB green drive and also downloaded instant cake from dvrupgrade.com. I created the new drive and I can see 16 new partitions but when I installed it if back in the box it goes nowhere. Started thinking that the power supply went bad but I was able to test the power going to the hard drive and it appears to be correct at 12V and 5V.
    So now I am not sure what to do next. Is it possible that the drive is not compatible? The original drive was also a WD 250GB. I off tried puting the old drive in a zip-lock bag and put it in freezer for about half an hour, I was able to get it to run and even saw the partitions but unfortunately not long enough to copy the data from it.
    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
