    Thank you. Whether or not the restore works, I'm not going to wait too long to get one of those higher capacity Seagate plug-and-play "upgrade" drives from WeaKnees...

    A larger drive is fine - but you won't get the extra space unless you run a command on our boot disk:

    Must replacement be same size drive (device copy image)

    Hi,

    TiVo tech newbie. Apologies if I posted in the wrong forum.

    Original 80GB Maxtor Diamondmax drive in a Toshiba SD-H400 Series 2 is almost dead. Not running Linux anywhere, but had at some point done a device copy (sector-by-sector copy) to an image file.

    I understand that there is some sort of capacity lock on the SD-H400. Is that physical or hours of programming? That is must the image be restored to another 80GB drive - or is a handy larger drive OK to use. (Not trying to increase the number of hours here...)

    Thanks.

    gary
