i dont have my machine yet, but i was just thinking that with doing a lot of harddrive recording, you'll have to defrag the drive at some point so you dont experience any frame-rate dropping... but i haven't read about anyone doing this.

also, can you replace the harddrive with an OEM brand for future expandability?

i realize this isn't a "computer" but with the added hardware inside, i'm thinking it will need maintenance beyond what a normal "consumer electronics" device would need.


anyone?

There is no need to defrag the HDD on the Panasonics (see the active thread elsewhere on this board about this subject).


No, you can't "upgrade" the drive to a larger capacity. You can replace the existing drive with one of the same specs. Or, you can put in a larger capacity drive, but it will only format to the size of the original drive. However, you must ensure that any replacement drive does not have higher power consumption or the unit will either fry up or begin to exhibit various malfunctions.


Currently, there are no successful "hacks" for any of the Panasonic HDD-equipped recorders-and there likely never will be.
