Hello everyone,
Long time since I posted. But come here regularly. Here is my dillema(sp).
I have a DCT5100 with dual tuner, DVR and firewire which was recently activated.

I want something simple. To be able to see the 5100 harddrive thru firewire and simply copy the already dvr recorded shows to my pc so that I can make mpeg dvds.

This was how I did it with my old replay..very simple.

However, although xp sees the box, it seems to want drivers. I have no idea how to deal with this. I dont want to capture video, merely copy files from the comcast harddrive. Is this possible? I was expecting xp to "see" the comcast harddrive.

Can anyone help???
Thanks

Update to my question. I actually have the 6412. Checked this with comcast and in the setup menu. Don,t know why I thought I had 5100.

I also would like to know how to transfer video files of previously recorded programs. I found out how to record the current program from another post, but I really want to know how to archive my recorded prorgrams into my PC when my DVR is full. Damn it comcast... I hope they come out with a DVD-R....
