Why I oughta... (dead HDD)

I bought a Linksys USB200M today on the way home so I could install it on my DirecTiVo this weekend (thanks for the pointers, Stevel) and my freaking Hard drive died tonight...

After spending no less than 2 hours on the phone with DirecTV, and having them reach the conclusion that I should buy a new one, I figured I'd put in my old HDD (the original 40 GB HDD) and lo and behold, everything works. I'm downloading all software updates from the last year right now.

My 120 GB Maxtor only lasted 10 months... where is that receipt anyway.
I was going to upgrade/hack this weekend anyway, now I just need a new disk. Any ideas on what the best/most reliable brand is these days?

Is the 137 GB limit still a limit for DirecTiVos (series 2)

I have some precious cargo on the dead drive, is there some easy way to move it to the new Hard Drive when I get it up and running? Presumably, once I get the network adaptor going and do things I can't type about here, as long as the relevant sectors of the old HDD are ok, it should be possible, but what do I know anyway?
