Advertisements hello, I'm hoping I have missed something obvious, from what i have read this should be working. orig setup: tivo series 1 HDR31201, 30GB Quantum Fireball. added 80GB seagate as a drive B at some point. recently the Quantum has started emitting a high pitched noise (presumably the bearings a getting a little worn). so i figured, how hard is it to combines my 2 drives onto a spare maxtor diamond max 9 plus 200GB i had laying around. I have followed the instructions at hinsdale-how-to/index9.html , and used the boot disk at dvr/stores/1/lba48.cfm at this point I have been able to create a small backup file, mfsinfo works on the original A and B drives. If I try to restore onto the new maxtor drive from either the backup file without the recordings or from a full mfsrestore with the recordings the program says it succeeded (mfsrestore with the -x flag even said it created partitions 13 and 14 i believe). however heres the problem. the maxtor gives an error when running mfsinfo /dev/hdc about the mfs headers being invalid. obviously copykern also fails tryig to copy the original kermel and doesnt swap in the new one. is there anything obvious im missing about my new drive being compatable? thoughts? i'm out of ideas.
