Question about DISH Network DVR-625 DTV Receiver / 100-Hours Video Recorder
This morning I was playing back a TV show I had recorded when the hard drive suddenly stopped. I tried to turn the unit on and off several times, but it had no effect.
I understand the files on the 625 hard drive are encrypted. Is there any way I can recover the programs I recorded? I'm a professional translator and the content on the hard drive is important to my business. Does Dish Network have the means to recover files from a crashed hard drive?
Usually hard drive failure boils down to files not opening succesfully, or a random internal failure, not a physical issue with the hard drive, however because dish network repairs these issues on a large scale the fix is to wipe the software and start over which means all recordings are lost, unfortunately recovering these recordings is basically impossible... if you often record things which are imperative to your business i would suggest getting a 622/722 dvr which will allow you to download these recordings to an external hard drive via usb, you will have unlimited use uploading and downloading programs for a one time fee of about 40$

With the usb port is it possiable to transfer your recordings to a memory stick instead of a external hard drive and is there a charge for this service?

It sounds as though the hard drive is about to go south on you soon and the receiver is going to need to be replaced however, in the interim you can change the options of the recordings and make it a default so that the recording continues past the end of the show. It is possible that extending this time will allow you to view the portion you want before it skips to the end. In order to do this press the guide button and select a program in the future. On the create timer screen select the option icon. You will now be at the timer options screen you can extend the time the recording will last after the end of the show and when it will begin recording prior to the show. I would also set this as your systems default so that it performs the same way regardless of what you are recording. According to the latest known receiver issues this is not identified as it is a common indication that the hard drive has an error internally. If this works I suggest that you have a replacement sent to you so that you do not lose the use of your DVR un-expectantly.Remember to watch all recorded events prior to replacement as you will lose that info when the receiver is swapped.
