I am not sure where this post should reside so sorry if I got it wrong! I have been trying to backup videos saved on a Pioneer DVR-630H DVD & HDD recorder. First of all I looked at backing up onto DVD from the HDD, but this is a long winded nightmare due to the clunky UI and the sheer amount of videos on the HDD. My next brain wave was to open up the recorder and get the HDD connected to a PC, dump the raw data, then hopefully extract/convert the videos into a usable format. The HDD is a Seagate IDE, so I used an IDE to USB interface. The drive does not appear in My Computer, and it appears in Disk Manager with a blank volume label and the file system is blank. It is listed as online and healthy, and it shows the correct capacity, and also the correct model number in Properties. Can anybody advise as to how I can copy from the HDD? I know it might not be a compatible file system, but surely there is some kind of workaround?... I hope.
