You cannot do that, unless you hack into the firmware of the DVD player, which would be both difficult to do and probably *******.

Does anyone know how to mount the Drobo B800i on Linux in NTFS?

Pretty much all Linux operating systems, by default, will "see" an NTFS formated hard drive. So after plugging your Drobo in to your linux based OS it should come up as a mounted hard drive automatically. When you post a question like this it is important to detail the exact OS being used, the version of the OS. etc.. Without the details it is difficult to talk specifics..

GTech hard drive broken and need to copy and backup data from it

If you can hook it up as a secondary drive on your mac you should be able to boot up off your main drive and then look into the secondary and transfer over the contents you want. The drive has to be recognized by the computer bios, if not recognized then the hard drive logic board is toast.

Bad news is that it is possible that your attempts to repair may have permanently trashed the unit - than can also happen so be prepared for the worst.

Hardware failure -36, 2747

I have a DROBO which I am trying to recover with DiskWarrior.
When I connect the DROBO and try to run DiskWarrior, I get an error -36 "hardware failure".
I can hear the DROBO doing "stuff".
If I wait several hours until the DROBO is quiet, then DiskWarrior doesn't get the error, and I can try to recover it.
Scratched my head over this for a while, so figured I would post the solution in case anyone has the same problem.
All the forum posts are about dead disks.
My disk isn't dead, it just has a sick filesystem, as proven by the fact that if I wait long enough, DiskWarrior can try to do something with it.
The disk activity was a clue.
I suspected that TimeMachine or something else on the mac is trying to fsck the file system in preparation for mounting. Unfortunately that takes HOURS on this large volume full of time machine backups.
So opened Terminal and typed: ps -ef ' grep fsck_hfs and there was the culprit:
0 67332 18 0 6:26am ?? 1:02.06 /System/Library/Filesystems/hfs.fs/Contents/Resources/../../../../../../sbin/fsck_hfs -y /dev/disk5s2
To kill it, type kill followed by the second number from the left, in this case: kill 67332
The disk activity stops, and you can then run DiskWarrior.

Hard drive freezes constantly and freezes computer

Perform diagnostics on hard drive to see if the issue is cause by it. If drive checks out fine then the problem is with the OS needing repair.
