    Brilliant - following your video instructions it only took me a couple of minutes to get a FREE 500Gb Hard Disk which was previously installed in an old video recorder.

    awesome info.....I just took one out of an old dish network receiver without any problems......got a 500GB Seagate for a spare PC......YEAH....thank you

    This is awesome! I recently recieved several old dvrs from a friend, and I've been wondering what to do with them.

    One tip I have as a more experienced site user: Try to keep your titles concise and free of unnecessary exclamation. This makes the how-to appear more professional and increases your views.

    Ah I see... Well if you have some scrape metal from the covers you could try what I did and make some plate Armour out of it. Hear is a Tale guard...

    I just did this over the weekend, previous tenant left a DVR, I happened to be building a new computer. Popped open the DVR and there was a 320g SATA western digital drive. Awesome score. Formatting it was tricky find in windows 7, but fairly easy.

    Most of my projects are made from scrap and salvaged materials!

    The matter is very interesting, but the video is impossible to watch because of the shaking of the camera. Please let it be still, I'm dizzy.

    I do apologize, when I get enough money I am going to buy a actual camera instead of using my phone, so I'll be able to have the stability issues fixed, and hopefully make more proffesional videos.

    I had to do things the other way around to fix a DVR by changing and upgrading the internal HD.

    Well done!

    PS: All the partitioning/formatting etc are straight forward in LINUX

    Good to hear, I don't have much experience working with Linux, but I do know that their interface is a lot more user friendly... I guess that is just one example XD
