I have a Pioneer DVR-533 that no longer recognizes the hard drive. It's about 1 month past warranty (imagine that).

It takes a long time to power up, then says "HDD ERR" on the display, and goes directly to DVD mode and doesn't allow me to switch to HDD mode. When trying to access menus that relate to the HDD, it says "The Hard Disk Drive info is incorrect".

The hard drive isn't making any unusual noises. How do I set the HDD info? Is a service disk required? I remember seeing a remote control, for what model I can't remember, that could be loaded on a Palm Pilot; would this help me? Where would I get that?

I'm very computer and electronics savvy, I just need some basic info to get started. Would this have happened on my computer I could take care of it!
