Can you please suggest how I can repair a hard disk?

Any suggestions how I can repair a hard drive in a Pioneer DVR-550HX-S which I can see on my laptop via the USB cable but cannot identify the platform operating on the disk. Windows informs me its a "Generic Hierarchical" system...what's that? I don't want to reinitialize the disk and lose all the recordings. Thanks.

Hi,

The Pioneer DVR systems use a linux based drive format, as such you will need to download and install a linux file system driver into your computer to access the files.

Go to:

http://www.fs-driver.org/download.html

download and install the driver file and you should be able to read the drive. If you're still having problems feel free to post back here and I will continue to assist you,

I have the same problem. Has anyone found a solution? I have an HP Notebook dv6700 with a Pioneer DVDRW [DVR-K17B ATA Device]. For the past few months I haven't been able to burn anything to disc. I can't find any firmware updates online. I'm not sure if I need to buy a new drive?

Thank you in advance for any feedback.

Hard drive shows full even after erasing 120 hours.


You should empty the recycled bin in the system and delete all temporary files on it.

DVD R burnt by pioneer drive couldn't be read by itself.


If there were compatability issues with the disc it would have been unable to burn to the dvd initially, the problems you mention are a sign that the reading in the dvd is failing and there's never a solution for problems as these, as it means that a replacement is needed, as the dvd writer arent worth repairing. I had the same thing exactly, but after a while it wouldnt even acknowledge that i had a writable dvd in the drive, but was ok with cd's. I think it is down to poor quality lasers, so as to keep the dvd writer prices down.
