New DVR39 problems


I currently run a Phillips 112, with an 80 gig A drive. It's been working great for several years now.

Just today, I received my RCA DVR39, which I got on E-bay. I want to set this one up for the kids to use. Well, when I unpacked it, I could tell something inside was loose and banging around.

Opened it up, and the HD had come loose, and torn out the front panel cable, the MB power cable, and it's own data cable.

Fixed all that, and now it powers up and sits on the Welcome. Powering up screen.

How do I find out if the drive is shot or just blank?

If I put it in one of my Linux boxes, what should I see on it?

If it's blank, where can I find an image for this unit?
