Hi guys,
I have a LG High Definition Recorder LST-5402P, and the HDD has an erorr. When I try to format it, it says Please wait, then Failed to format HDD.

Is there any solution to this? Thanks

Don't worry. I fixed it.

All I did was change over the HDD inside the recorder, luckily I had a spare 200GB ATA lying around :)

Oh I was wondering about those issues.
I have a LST-5402P and was wanting to know how to back-up the data off the HDD. one of the questions I was going to ask was if the hard drive can be replaced with something of a different size, or if it has to be the same size and model as the OEM drive? The other question I was going to ask is if anyone knows the format/filesystem of the HDD's used in the LG units? are they FAT/NTFS/EXT2/HPFS or something else used by LG? Does anyone know? or should I remove the drive (from my 2month old unit) and put it in my PC to find out?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.
