    I have two TiVo Model 3 Australia and the hard disk in the oldest one died with the green screen of death. I had a new WD 1TB which I installed and the TiVo reset ok but the step I couldn't complete was the one where I create the image for the tcd663000 with winmfs.

    Is winmfs and Mfs reformatted one and the same?
    I have Windows 7 pc so I think I need wings.
    went to and got redirected.....bummer
    I'd like to backup my one working TiVo and use its Image to restore the second TiVo.

    Thanks in advance.

    MFS Reformatter is only for creating Roamio or Bolt drives in the 3-6 TB range. The only Windows programs that can handle a Series 3 are WinMFS and DvrBARS.

    There are a few links around here to copies of WinMFS that people have posted since shut down.

    There was a separate version of WinMFS for the Australian S3 HD TiVos.

    Perhaps someone happened to have downloaded a copy of it back when and has taken steps to help out the OP.
