PVR9200 data off old HD

    I've put a new HD in my unit and plugged the old error prone HD into my PC and it comes up as a drive but doesn't show any video files. I notice reference to some recovery software called pvr101 but can't locate a copy. Could some kind person email me a copy?
    Is there another approach?

    many thanks

    Thanks BMAX, but I've now resolved it by downloading a piece of software called humaxrw.exe
    Runs in DOS window - works treat.

    New HD is Hitachi which according to other posts has a slower startup than the old Seagate so the Humax doesn't always start up correctly from standby.

    Two options:
    1. Never put it in standby, which means the unit takes 30W as against 10W in standby, works out to about £3 a month, hardly a big issue.
    2. Put the old Seagate HD back in the Humax and reformat it. This is the option I've gone with and all is working ok for now. I can always move to option one if I get errors.

    Hope this helps somebody - don't buy a Hitachi for you old Humax !
