    Hm, a somewhat peculiar problem. Try this:

    Right click on "My Computer" > "Manage"

    A "Computer Management" will open up. Click on "Disk Managment" in tree structure on its right.

    Find your HDD in the list of available HDDs and tell me what you've found or - better yet - post a screenshot [you can use www.imageshack.us for upload].

I've seen a simular problem where the disk is empty but it says there is a reduced volume remaining, In my case i ran check disk (started on restart) on the drive and it found a ton of files that were lost and restored them, so this regained the lost space. If that doesn't work, try right clicking on it in my computer and formating it.

How can I copy all HDD's data in LG HDD/DVD Recoder RH1888HS by my computer or Laptop?


If the unit is under warranty...DON'T DO THIS.

open up the unit and remove the hard disk.
If you have a desktop, connect the drive like you would any other hard disk.
If the drive does NOT show up under My Compujter, then the format is proprietary, and all you can do is back up the drive with a program like Acronis True Image (you must have more free space on your hard disk than the DVR's drive size...if the DVR has a 500G hard disk, you need 500G of free space on your desktop drive).
If the drive DOES show up with a drive letter under Computer, then create a directory on the C drive and simply drag and drop all the files from the DVR hard disk (E: or whatever it makes itself) to this folder. The files may still be in a proprietary format and unplayable though.
If you are trying to play the files on the computer, I suggest using VLC player. It plays almost everything in the universe.

I have a 250gb seagate sata but when i put my 80gb IDE hdd it only detects in booting and in bios but after that if i open my computer i cant see my 80gb IDE Hdd and even in device manager my hard disk was...


there was wrong in the set up of jumper in your 80gb hdd. Look closely to the 80gb harddrive, in between the ide cable terminal and the power supply connector you will see 8pin terminals paired together and a jumper use to short the paired terminals. It is most likely that the jumper was configure to detect your hdd as master. If the ide cable you use for the 80gb hdd was also use for the dvd/cdrom drive then it will conflict with it if both jumper setting was set to master. See the description of jumper settings in the sticker of the hdd. Position the jumper to slave.

Reboot your system again and see if the 80gb finally appear in your system. When system boot upon detection of hdd, the primary master should be 250gb while your primary/secondary slave will be read your 80gb hard disk.

Want to replace 80Gb HDD with a bigger one. How? Do I have to copy everything from the original one to the new one before actually replacing it? how?


Hi there,
Before you change the 80 GB Hard Drive you can take the backup of your hard drive to the External Hard Drive or if you have any sata case so you put your new hard Drive in the sata case and make 2-3 partitions in the new drive and copy your data in the new hard drive except in first partition which will be primary C Drive for your laptop and will replace data when you install windows in it. after the windows is installed and your data is verified in your new hard drive you can clear your old hard Drive or use it as an External Hard Drive (as you like )
2nd thing which is more safer and reliable is that you make backup CD/DVDs for your data before proceed to formatting or even changing hard drives, it will be very useful and helpful for any unforeseen data loss
if you require more assistance regarding this feel free to reply to this post

After I reformat my LG HDD video recorder to give me more space, it only clears a tiny portion. How do I clear the whole recorder? I am going to HDD format, and reformatting. Thanks


Hi,

Do you mean it always shows 10Gb less space than the capacity of the drive. ie only shows 150Gb but you have a 160Gb drive? The reason for this is that it has 10Gb reserved for the buffer of the pause/rewind live TV.

Cheers,

Keith

New HDD = 80GB but, Bios sees >1TB unpartioned space.


Whenever you switch drives, you must access the BIOS and have it redetect the drive every time. Try the new drive again. Have the BIOS detect it. Use the Windows XP disk and do a full fomat (youll get an option to quick format it, but dont) If the format fails, then the drive is defective.

Troubling in sata connection


  • I suppose there is a jumper(beside the power pin) on your new HDD,
  • if its true the your HDD supports 3GB/s mode but your motherboard does not .
  • So place the jumper on the HDD on 1.5GB/s combination.
then
  • Disconnect the 80 GB,
  • Connect the new HDD,
  • Boot from any bootable xp or vista or any disk tool like erd commander and try to format the new HDD.
  • Then connect the new HDD and boot from it.
Tell me what happened.

No booting


The problem is Operating systems are co-dependent on hardware.
If the motherboards, processors, ram, video adapters, etc don't match you would not be able to swap hard drives and expect to boot.

You could try pressing F8 on boot and try to access safemode.

If it does boot into safemode immediately it will want to reactivate windows.(because of all the hardware changes.

If it still can't boot, you may want to put the 80 gig in as slave to the 40gig and ghost the 40 gg hard drive over to the 80.

If you don't want to lose your data on the 80 gig then reboot with an xppro cd and reinstall windows in the same partition overlaying the installation on top of existing windows directory.

the new windows will have to be activated but all data will still be there.
