Problem backing up Series2 WD600 Drive
I'm trying to backup my new Series2 and use a new 160GB Western Digital drive to upgrade my TiVo (I know I cannot use all 160GB, but the rebate made it cheaper than 120GB).
When I boot with the boot disk, it lists my Tivo A Drive (a WD600, in theory a 60GB drive) as:
hdd: 66055248 sectors (33820 MB) w/2048KiB Cache, CHS=65531/16/63, UDMA(33)
I get the partition table a few lines later, starting with 'Apple', 'Bootstrap 1', 'Kernel 1', etc. so something is going right.
However, when I try to run:
mfsbackup -6so /mnt/dos/tivo.bak /dev/hdd
I get in response:
mfs_load_zone_map: Primary zone map corrupt, loading backup.
mfs_load_zone_map: Secondary zone map corrupt, giving up.
mfs_load_zone_map: Zone map checksum error!
mfsbackup: Backup failed at startup. Make sure you specified the right devices, and that the drives are not locked.
I'm wondering 1) if my BIOS is too old (~3 yrs) to handle the WD600, and therefore it's reporting the wrong size, and that's why I can't do the backup. Or is it something someone else has seen before?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
