I have DISH TV with the DVR. I can, and have, connected a external hard drive to the DVR. The hard drive, RIP, died. I am now looking for a external hard drive USB2.0. The hard drive must have an external power supply (required). I think I can get away with USB2.0/3.0. Someone please help. Before I can investigate transferring ALL the movies and such from the dead hard drive, I need to have something to transfer the data to. Steve Furlan, So. Calif.
If you are going to try to transfer the files from the old drive you can get an external hard drive dock. If the drive itself is OK then you can use it with the dock. If not then you won't be able to transfer the files off it without some very expensive service.
