Onkyo MB-S1 "Digital Music Libary" CD Player (Hard Drive Format?)


It comes equipped with a 20gig harddrive that, so far I cannot figure out the format of. Anyone got any ideas on how to mount this drive?

dmesg reports:
Code:
hdc: FUJITSU MPG3204AT E, ATA DISK drive
hdc: max request size: 128KiB
hdc: 40031712 sectors (20496 MB) w/512KiB Cache, CHS=39714/16/63, UDMA(66)
Code:
forever:bkeating> sudo fdisk -l /dev/hdc

Disk /dev/hdc: 20.4 GB, 20496236544 bytes
16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 39714 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 = 516096 bytes

Disk /dev/hdc doesn't contain a valid partition table

Hi bpk,

It appears that you posted this query a couple of years ago. I was wondering if in the meantime you came up with a successful way of reading this harddrive. A friend of mine was able to read it with some sort of a hard drive recovery software but he says it was very slow.

I use my MB-S1 for recording radio concert broadcasts (since it has a handy built in timer like a VCR) and it would be nice to move those to other devices. I also tried swapping in a larger unformatted drive and that did not work (it gave a Fatal Drive Error message).

Hello,
I recently purchased an Onkyo MB S1 and contacted the Dutch company who imports Onkyo in the Netherlands.
They told me it was possible to replace the harddisk with a bigger one as long as the C/H/S was the same as the Fujitsu one that is fitted.They said they tested it with a 40 gig model and it worked.....
Did the one you tryed comply with the mentioned cylinders,heads ....

My onkyo mb-s1 needs a new harddisk. Which type do I need and what about formatting etc?
