Question about Quantum Fireball Lct20 (QML20000LD-A) 20 GB Hard Drive
Installed it on a newer computer and it only reads it as a 9 mgb drive dont know whats up
is there an instalation disk i can get somewere
I've just solved this very problem on a lct 20 (40GB) which was showing
as 9mb. The drive came from a dead series 1 Tivo DVR, which locks the
drive capacity when it shuts down. The utility that solved it for me
was qunlock (Google it - there's lots of Tivo upgraders who offer it)
which runs from the dos prompt (make a dos floppy - or windows startup
disk - and copy the program to it). Simply type qunlock n where n is a
number (0-3) that represents where the drive is (type qunlock/? for a
guide). The important bit is to power off the computer afterwards! (Not
I also found the HDD Capacity Restore Tool from HDDguru.com which runs under windows, but although this reported the correct 40GB capacity of the drive, it did not successfully restore it for me

After clearing CMOS and it still doesn't work, try to run FDISK on the drive. Delete partitions and create a new one. There could be a hidden partition which could be using the other hard drive space. Restart PC and then format again. This should allow you to use the full hard drive capacity.
