    I can select my TiVo drive in WINMFS without anty problem. When I start a backup in WINMFS, WINMFS shuts down. When I start it up again and use MFSinfo I see "Not a TiVo Drive". This is a stock drve that began to reboot and green screen about a week ago. I have a new drive on the way and I need my image to get the new drive installed.

    WhenI try MFSlive, I have trouble mounting the USB DOS drive, i get Mounting /dev/sdc1 on /dos failed: Invalid argument.

    I have a notebook PC with and external USB-SATA box for the TiVo drive and a 360GB USB drive for storing the image.

    Is there anything I can do? I would like to preserve my image because of cable cards, but if I can't is there an image avaiable I can download?

    Look on the back of your TiVo and find the number on the sticker that starts with TCD. That's the model number.

    What is it?
