I have purchased an LG RH2T160 hard drive. It was working fine for the first two months but has now on three separate occasions frozen while watching a recording from the hard drive and taping a show at the same time. It just freezes and you cant do anything and have to hold down the power button to restart. When it restarts, the new recording hasn't saved...
Also having problems with a copied disk. It works in a friends LG RH2T80 but when I put the disk in ours, it just says "reading" and has a picture of a dvd spinning on the screen and never starts.

I believe you are looking for a 320 GB replacement drive, I would remove the one in there first to check which brand it is, and then just replace it.
LG haven't release any information saying that the hard disk has any specific brand (or as far as i have read about them) And the software to run the drive should be separate. The only info i cannot provide, is the formatting options. You would need to check that with your PC first by putting the old drive in your pc and checking the formatting on the old disk, then just format the new one to the same file system and it *should* work. I say should strongly because sometimes there are hidden gremlins in problems like these, and I don't want you to go ruin your player but taking my advice as you would from an LG representative. I do work in the I.T. industry and all of the DVR recorders I have seen just use a normal hard disk with certain filing systems.
Hope this helps, anymore problems, just ask!
