re re-using old BT box hard drive - A friend tried all methods here to no avail BUT says he finally connected the BT drive via usb using one of those converters that allows you to connect any old hard drive (SATA / IDE) via USB ... and HEY PRESTO . No problems at all. Formatted away all the BT garbage & now has a useful 160Gb western digital hard drive. Would be interested if anyone else succeeds this way. No idea why this would work when nothing else did.
