Our PVR 9200t has just played this much-reported trick on us too. The Recorded Items list is blank but the HDD control shows a lot of space is still used. A quick new test record did appear in the list and played back all right. So I understand that to try to retrieve the file list I should link to a PC - I'm on a 32 bit machine running Windows Vista. (Reformatting the Humax hard disc and accepting the loss of programmes would be a last resort I'm trying to avoid.) Can someone please clarify for me what has been said in various threads? Is it correct that I must open up the Humax, remove its hard disc drive, put it in a powered ATA to USB connector (bought from where? Maplins? PCWorld?), plug it into a USB socket on the PC, and then use humaxrw? Or is it possible to use the (square, printer-type) USB socket behind the fold-down front panel of the Humax. Does this work, but just very slowly? Or does this not interface with the hard disc drive at a low enough level to allow humaxrw to work its magic? I've tried this, using "humaxrw :2 -l", but get the message "Permission denied" for Physical Drive 2. Oh, and even if I do connect things correctly, how do I know what drive to ask for? On a related point, I've also used this straightforward USB connection with eLinker software, and I've installed the Humax driver software that came on a disc, and I've successfully copied an mp3 and jpeg from PC to Humax - but are "MP3" and "Image" the only folders this will allow me to access?
