    Hard drive woes - new 2TB Seagate Pipeline, lots of disk errors

    Well, thank you to all respondents and I seem to have a working disk now. Caution over Amazon suppliers seems warranted. The Seagate Pipeline ST2000VM003 which others have found a good replacement 2TB drive is now discontinued, but I persisted. First Amazon supplier (Artio International...

    Hard drive woes - new 2TB Seagate Pipeline, lots of disk errors

    @MartinLiddle - also thank you. Will still post label when I get at box. For what it is worth, hummy still cranks away despite disk problems and continues to record stuff, most of which is coming out fine.

    I used to use fan package before last disk blew up - I was on out-of-box firmware until first disk died, after a number of years, then ran on custom firmware with the factory replacement, for a few more years. I had not yet put 'fan' back on and weather has been a tad warm, but I think that...

    Hard drive woes - new 2TB Seagate Pipeline, lots of disk errors

    Hi to all. I have had my HDR-T2 for quite a while and have sent it back for disk replacement once already, which they did for disk cost and postage and in short time frame. Very happy with that but it was years ago. The disk failed again a while later and I did not get round to doing anything...
