mfstools can't see partitions?
I have a hacked Phillips HDR312 with 2.0.1. It's currently inactive, since I have my new Hughes DTiVo doing it's dual-tuner magic. I'm selling the HDR312 to a friend of mine, but I need to do some maintenance first.
I've been trying to use mfstools (on the bootable CD) to make a backup and divorce the A drive (even though I have a 2.0.1-Z16 backup on another 30GB drive). Problem is, mfstools can't seem to find the information it needs to back up the drive. The drive is installed as /dev/hdb. I don't have the exact error message on me at the moment, but if I run fdisk /dev/hdb and try to list the partitions, there are none displayed. If I mount /dev/hdb4 /mnt/tivo, it works fine and I can see all of the files that should be there. I've checked to make sure the drive isn't locked.
FWIW, I'm running:
mfstool backup -6 -s -o /mnt/d/TiVo.bak /dev/hdb
There is a large FAT32 partition mounted on /mnt/d.
Am I doing something wrong? I'll post the specific mfstools error information when I get a chance.
