-- Problem with Philips DSR6000 (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=111228)
Ignore what your PC has installed on it - doesn't matter.
You could run the Maxtor MAXDIAG diagnostic on the disk (boots from a floppy), but this isn't a particularly good diagnostic - the drive has to be pretty much dead in the water before it will fail.
You cannot mount the drives in a new receiver and do anything useful. If you put them in another DSR6000, you'll get "Error 51" which requires you to do a clear and delete everything. If you put them in the new Hughes HDVR2 it won't even boot.
Since you have a backup, you could boot the Linux "TiVo boot CD" and use the dd command to copy the backup disk to the new one. Alternatively, you could use MFS Tools to do a small backup to a FAT partition on another disk (if you have one) and then restore to the new disk (this will be faster.)
Do not let your PC boot into Windows with your TiVo drives attached.
