Anyone have any experience with upgrading the hard drive on these units.
A upgrade is a relatively simple procedure, however, I would like to keep what is on the existing drive & move it to the new drive.
With a simple upgrade, the unit will format the new drive.
I would like if possible to clone the existing drive onto a larger capacity drive. If a true clone is possible the recorder should not need to format the new drive (in theory i suppose).
My questions are:
what format is used on the hard drive on these recorders- fat, fat23 etc?
would the unit recognize a SATA drive using IDE to SATA converter plug (the original drive is IDE)
is there any recommended software to use for cloning (if possible)
