Question about Televison & Video
The objective is to copy/recover the existing movie/video (shows) thatare inside the hard drive of an Atlanta Scientific Explorer 8000Digital Video Recorder (DVR).
This would involve two steps. The electronics part which isnothing more but physically removing the hard drive (HD) from the DVRand the computer part which is transferring the movie/video files fromthe DVR's HD to a temporary holder (a PC's own HD) and eventuallyburning to DVDs.
The cover of the Explorer 8000 must be removed to expose the inside. The inside would look like the image below.
The component inside the yellow circle is the HD. It is normally heldby a couple of screws and electronically attached to the printedcircuit boards by two (2) connectors. The wide flat cable is the IDEdata interface while the yellow/black/black/red is the power. Onceremoved, this HD can then be treated as a very large flash/thumb drivewith the necessary adapter.
The HD would look something like the image below. It is an 80Gb IDE drive.
The HD would then have to be connected to an IDE to USB adapter with anexternal power supply, something like the image below. If you willavail of the services of a qualified computer tech, then most likely hehas something like this already.
The DVR's HD can now be attached to an operational computer. Here is the trick, the computer must be running Linux.
