Hello. I'm trying to save the recordings of a damaged Toshiba rd-xv45 before discarding it. I'm in the long tedious process of burning DVDs, but I am wondering :
Is there a way to use directly its seagate HD on my computer, and to import the data from there ? It would allow for more flexibility, and I could get rid of the whole machine earlier. I don't know how the data is encrypted on this DVD recorder's HD, and if there are available tools to access it from the computer. I'm not keen on just tring, as I'm not certain if I can just remove the HD and put it back into the recorder if I fail to access its content from the computer. Just in case it turns out to be a one-way trip, I'd prefer to know in advance if plugging this HD on my computer could be useful or not.
So, has anyone of you already tried to read a retrieved DVD recorder's HD from a PC ? Does anyone know the chances of decyphering this specific model's recordings ?
I've been asking in other forums, and they advised me to come ask the question here instead. So... uh, hi.
