You should be able to drop any size hard drive in that unit. Unplug it and take the cover off. The hard drive will be screwed in to it's holder and will have a 40 pin ribbon cable and a power cable running to it. The drive will have the specs on it. Just google it and see what pops. Should be no problem.

Lorex eco 130 can not get to menu, screen shows Lorex page

There should be a paper clip size hole somewhere on the back of the unit. If you depress the button in there it should be the reset. The problems sounds to me more of a hard drive issue though.

Getting a system alarm - HDD FAIL. Does this mean I need to replace the internal hard drive. If so, what hard drive is compatable with this unit?

Depending on how new the system is, you should check with either the store or the manufacturer, and see if it is still in warranty. If not, and you would like to replace the drive, open up the unit, and pull out the old drive, look up the model number online, and order the same model/type. seeing this is a newer model, I believe it will be a sata drive, unless they made their own special connector for their own devices.

How do you retrieve data off the hard drive

Take the hard drive out if the DVR or what ever it is you want to retrieve the data off of and order a hard drive enclosure if the cable is small and looks like this:
you need a SATA enclosure if it looks like this: You need an IDE hard drive enclosure you can find them at HTTP://WWW.AMAZON.COM at good prices :)

I have Samsung SHR-1040 DVR in use for 3 years. It is giving a humming sound now which is annoying. All other function working OK. What could be the problem

There is a small fan in the back of the unit which might be rubbing or failing. It's a standard type of fan so any good computer parts store will have a comparable replacement. Or it could be the hard drive is beginning to fail. You will have to open the case to find out.

Does the DVR not work with a Mac

It works independently with security cameras/multiplexers/or any video input. the hard drives have to be pc format to workin the unit..the unit takes a new harddrive out of the box and formats it for use.. does this answer your question???

I have the same problem. I believe this unit is a lemon by Samsung. I was so exhausted I went to Hard drive erase. After I erased the HD, now it will not record or go into recode mode. I think all it good for now is just to view the monitor. When I call Samsung they dont have a clue what a DVR is. I never seen a company so illerate. They cant even tell me where I can send it for repair.
