View Full Version : Surface scan on TiVo drive

Hi All,

One of my TiVos has developed a problem, which I'm trying to trace.

Power supply has checked out ok. I now suspect a bad block or something on the hard disk. I've installed a test disk (3gb) and so far the problem hasn't shown up.

What I was wondering is wether I can use the Seagate Discwizard (the boot cd) to do a check on the drive (from memory this is an option on it) without it corrupting the data. Will this work, or will it cause the disk to no longer work in my TiVo?
