I need to change hard drive. Does anyone know the proceedure?


you will need to format new hard drive to FAT32. then depending on system cd rom or no cd rom. with out cd rom both hard drives need to be in FAT32. can be done on a PC with FAT32 for large hard drive or down load FAT32 formatter any one will do to format the drive. then download the firmware and put just the 3 folder files on to the hard drive bin file etc. then put the drives back in the system. switch on and it shall do the rest takes about 10min. Now system with cd rom. down load the firm wear for your system. format the new hard drive so it is split into two drives both in FAT32. after this is done put into the system. burn the files for the firmware onto a disk and put in the cd rom on the system. and switch on the system and hold down camera 2 for 5-10seconds then the cd rom should load and put files on to the system and start up can take upto an hour depending on the size of the hard drive you are putting in. that should be it firm ware is available from the down loads and support on the Dedicated Micros web site.

I get "Disc problem -


the hard drive may be damaged or not have FAT32 format on the drive. this can be because the hard drive is not readable any more and needs replacing or it have lost it's format. check the hard drive on a PC. if not recognised on a pc you will need a new one and format it to FAT32 split drive as sound like you have the type with a cd rom. then down load the firmware and burn to a disc. put new hard drive in and cd into drive and hold down camera 2 for 5-10seconds should put the new software on from the disc and restart. takes up to an hour depending on disc size you put in.

Disk Problem - may be wrong FAT version suggets using monitor ro reformat disk. prior screenc showed message regaridng error 6019 (that was before my bosses started fooling with the system)


sounds like hard drive fail. take the hard drive out and put on a PC as a slave setting. if the PC picks it up, if it does go to my computer and check hard drive for faults using windows tools the hard drive should be in FAT32. if it will not read in window or ask's to be formated. it has lost is FAT32 format. now it can be remormatted but you will need a FAT32 format softwear as windows dont use this now in there firm wear. down load the firm wear from dedicated micro web site. and put the 3 files on the hard drive boot folder zip file and another one cannot rember name not dv file think it say or the not pad just the 3 files. put hard drive back in as master again. and turn on it should restart. will take a bit longer as it will be opening the zip file and loading the softwear. when its done then you can sort out the setting in the menu etc for record etc.if hard drive has failed and no repairable format it 2 FAT32 and do as above with 3 files. should be fine then. allso in the site is a manual read this for the setting.... think 6019 is hard drive fault

The box wont record saying the HDD memory is full however it only shows 26% and wont let me open the file or delete the file. further it has lost everything previously recorded


Hi, this is a common problem, you need to get in touch with the place you have bought it from and tell them your hard drive is corrupt and will need formatting and re-installing the firmware, now depending on how long you have had it they may tell you you need to pay to have it fixed, if they tell you that then you would be better off getting a new one.

the chances are something has over heated and caused the data on the hard drive to be corrupt so even though it only showing 26% it means the rest of the hard drive has corrupt data and cant be recorder on so you only have 26% of your hard drive left that you can use.

over time this will happen to all dtv recorders its nothing you can do either contact the place that sold it to you or have a look in the book that came with it and contact their customer support and explain whats happening, they will then tell you how to access the service mode and this will allow you to format the hard drive and may solve the problem.

we dont have the service menu details here as its only sagem who hold them and they keep it to themselves as its what their engineers use to reset the system and solve any problems.

it may or may not work but you have got nothing to lose so either take it back to where you bought it from and ask them about an exchange or refund or look in the handbook and call sagem customer service team and ask them how to format the harddrive

also check in the settings that this is turned on: OAD Auto Updates enabled.
make sure it is enabled.

also try doing the following to reset the box it may work but most of the time if the hd drive is corrupt it will need replacing before you can record again
1. Turn off the unit for 5 minutes to cause a full reset.
2. Turn on the PVR with everything attached except the aerial.
3. You will get an Er-09 on the display. On my PVR there was no output on the TV screen whatsoever (totally black screen).
4. Press 'OK' on the remote.
5. The box reboots in standby mode.
after this it should say OAD complete this means the firmware has been updated if it dont do anything then the chances are you have all the latest updates and you hard drive is no good.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Lost Pin number


I believe the default unlock code is "888888", not "8888" Try that.

here's a very poor copy of the owner's manual:

Clearing everything


A DVR has a small computer built in. When you run the clear everything option, this feature reinitialized the computer Hard Disk Drive doing a limited format. A format of a Hard Drive is always a slow process which normally takes 45 minutes to 1.5 hours on a 40 GB drive. Yours will actually take longer since it is larger (250 GB for 200 hours recording time), so I wouldn't panic yet. As long as you have a flashing red light on the box, it IS still formatting. If it goes beyond 8 hours, I would suspect you might have a problem or have been having some problem before (that motivated you to use clear everything).If, after 8 hours, it hasn't completed the format (red light flashing) then I would pull the cover on your DVR and pull and reseat the EIDE cable on the Hard Drive. Then restart again. Dirty contacts can cause this problem as well. Put the cover back on, do a hard restart and let it run again. If after another 8 hours, the problem still persists, then you may be experiencing read/write data errors on the drive. A failed or failing Hard Drive is most likely the culprit and it will have to be replaced. www.weaknees.com sells pre formatted and loaded Tivo Hard drives. If this is a Western Digital Drive, I would replace it with a Maxtor from them since the Maxtor are a special design just for DVR's.
