Hard Drive failure on my TF5000
« on: May 05, 2007, 01:32:57 AM »
I guess the subject says it all really.
Got home this evening and could not control the Toppy - only the OFF and Channel Changes and setup would work.  No Archive etc.
Listened to the harddisk and I could hear it seeking the boot tracks.
Question:- Assuming the drive is rooted - what brand do I replace it with, and what's the procedure for formatting the new drive?
