    I have a 9300T but am saving up for the HD PVR (sorry can't remember it's name)

    I have a couple of programmes on the 9300 I'd really like to keep and wondered whether there was an easy way of transferring these?

    Humax HDR Fox T2

    The bottom line is there is no easy way to transfer from a 9300 to the HDR T2, you would have to remove the Hard Disc from the 9300 to start with.

    Hi liz

    as Barry says there is no easy way to transfer the files from a 9300.
    However if you are confident about removing the drive and you can copy the files you want off (you may need a specialised program for that eg humaxrw), they could then be transferred to an external USB hard drive formatted for use with the HDR though there may be some file conversion necessary too.

    Thanks both.

    I could remove the hard drive from the 9300 when I get my HDR T2 but not sure how to copy the files?

    It's no real biggy but I entered a photo comp with photos of my lovely dog Benjy and he was chosen as runner up and would be nice to keep the programmes where these were shown.

    I believe humaxrw (from the download page here) (link)will read the files from a 9300t drive - you would need to connect using a USB-SATA adapter or direct to a spare port in the PC. Alternatively you could mount the drive in an external USB enclosure.
    It's command line but straightforward.

    Do Not let Windows initialise the drive.

    If you check this - 9300T / 9150T mods at humaxDisk, the problem is that with these using SATA drives rather than EIDE, and a Linux file system rather than DOS, the old 9200 mod doesn't work.

    What you must do is read the file system via something like FS driver, since Windows does not natively read anything that isn't windows (I could say much more but I won't ;)).

    I'm currently working out the best way to do the cabling from the above mods, but finding cables/splitters/passthroughs is proving tricky.

    Another thing to try with the 9300 would be to download and burn a Linux "Live CD" such as OpenSuSE 11.4 - KDE Live (more choices at OpenSuse.org. You need to burn it as a bootable ISO image using a tool such as Nero, then set the BIOS to boot CD/DVD before HDD.

    Restart and experience Linux for yourself, no risk of damage to the M$ installation unless you choose to install from the live CD, even then the installer is pretty good at not breaking your M$ OS. YMMV...

    My experience is that the best connection method is removing the drive from the hummy and plugging it in via a USb adaptor such as Maplin IDE/SATA to USB 2.0 adaptor. Copy the file to an external HD (also via USB) and you're away.

    What makes you think it is a Linux file system? As far as I am aware it is Humax proprietary and very similar (but not identical to the 9200). Humaxrw will read and write to it.

    What do you think that will achieve?
