Question about Pioneer DVR-640H DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder
My dvr-640 h worked good for 14 months. when the hard drive became full, I erased a couple hours of recordings only to see it still read full. I tried to optimize it but it keeps saying "optimizing not complete. please optimize again. I did. Still won't optimize. Also, I deleted another 120 hours off the drive but still reads full. I did the factory reset as well as unpluging for days at a time. Nothing works. According to the manual, If the hard drive freezes, the "hard drive initialize" option appears under disk set-up. It Doesn't. I called pioneer to see if they could send a bootable disk to initialize the hard drive. They won't! I guess I could remove the hard drive and put it into a desktop to anylize it but I don't have that comp with me here, only my laptop. Anyone know of this happening to anyone else? Please advise.
Melnavz does not what he is talking about, and he give a extreme bad adviced. If you carelessly remove the hard drive it will bricked your dvr. Before you mucked around with the hard drive, make sure that you have the Pioneer Data Service Disk GGV1273 type 2 DVD and Pioneer service Remote control. For more infos follow the link below:
