Question about Philips HDRW720 DVD Recorder
Hello Steve, I was wondering if you ever managed to track down that formatting CD? My hard drive has died and after opening it up I see that it is just a standard Maxtor 120GB ATA drive but I suspected that it needs special proprietary Philips formatting. I contacted Philips technical support but they were not able to tell me anything and their authorized service centers want a fortune just to troubleshoot it, never mind repair it. I managed to find a copy of the service manual on the internet but have been unsuccessful in finding this formatting CD. Then I noticed your post and thought perhaps you had found it?
Any help you can offer me would be appreciated,
Jeff I did find the CD from Partstore.com Part number 3122 785 90710 http://www.partstore.com/PartSearch.aspx?PartNumber=312278590710
Install the new Maxtor 120G drive order the 3122 785 90017 cable to the unit and a PC and enter windows Hyperterminal program.
Power the unit on type 2107 at the Hyperterminal Prompt and the drive will format and install the demo videos to the factory settings. If you need assistants my email it YPLab@qwestoffice.net.
This unit is worth the time to fix since no other on the market has the TV Guide.
