The hard drive on my humax HDR1000S keeps losing recordings. Later they come back. Please help

Sadly this fault is common on this model.


Your best option is probably an exchange box from Humax, but you will lose your recordings.

Replace hard drive motherboard

Before you start replacing drive you need to ask yourself if you are trying to replace a bad hard drive and just want to start with a clean install of the O.S. OR are you replacing your hard drive with a bigger one and wish to keep your installed programs, data and documents. If you want to keep your data and documents you need to know how to save the Files and folders on your computer to a CD, DVD or a USB hard drive. Just replacing the hardware involves unplugging all cables from computer after shutting it down. Then opening the case and unplugging the cables from the hard drive and then remove the screw(s) retaining the hard drive. Remove the old hard drive from the case and replace it with the new one, replace screws and plug cables back up watching that that the connectors are correctly aligned with the key(s) on the hard drive's sockets. Replacing the Hard drive also involves installing the O.S. and all your programs and applications on the new hard drive. You can find a lot of information in the internet about this.

I cant format my laptop . when i run xp cd after

Sorry, it sounds like your hard drive failed. It is either that, or your XP install CD has an error. If it is the hard drive, it is easy to replace. Take it to your local PC techie and he/she will put a new hard drive in for a lot less than a new PC. Check out eBay as the cheapest place to buy a replacement hard drive; there are two types of hard drives for laptops - SATA and IDE. Got to buy the "right" one.

Need to find a Hitachi Serial ATA 400 in stock


Odds of finding that drive new are slim to none but you can use ANY hard drive of at least same capacity to replace it. In fact as a data recovery specialist I always recommend my customers use several different brand/model drives in their arrays and simply elect to use the smallest one as the size for RAID on the others as this greatly minimizes the chance you will ever have multiple mechanical failures in a short timeframe.

Feel free to replace it with anything 400 or bigger and your raid should be able to assign an appropriate sized partition to the drive while it rebuilds itself.

Hope this helps FixYa,

I would remove the drive from the case and plug it in to my computer directly. Image it, and replace it. All data will be retained.
