How to capture recorded video files from DirecTV hard drive.....?
I was wondering if there was a way to capture recorded programs off a DirecTV hard drive and transfer them over to your PC.
I tried moving the Western Digital 80GB HD over to my PC and attached with IDE cable and connected the power cable, however, when I boot-up ubuntu does not see it.
I even tried buying an enclosure and tried that using a USB and Ubuntu does not see it.
I noticed that Windows-7 sees its there (the Western Digital HD ) via USB, however the PC Windows-7 does see the HD either, meaning, it does not allow me to enter the HD.
Does anyone know if there is a way to grab some of the recorded files off that DirecTv Western Digital HD...?
