    I know this question has been asked, but based on the search mostly in 2003, so am wondering whehter the DMRE85 can have its 80GB HDD changed to a larger unit or with the IDE controller is firmware restricted to 80GB only.

    As I read it makes sense from a manufacturer perspective to restrict this upgrade, however I am surprised that no one has found a way around this will a hack/firmware/chip mod.

    Are we limited to 80GB on this model?

    Thanks

    Yes - same for all HDD/DVDR combis to date. Producers see much of their future profits from selling you machines with larger HDDs in the future.

    If you check this thread:

    http://www.videohelp.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=253998

    you can see that somenone has just installed a 300 GB HDD in a Pioneer 510 HDD/DVD recorder. Check it to see what is needed.

    Hope that helps

    ...of course the 510 isn't a Panasonic E85 which is what the original poster asked.

    Oh, and just add an (un)interesting point... the hard disk is a Samsung Spinpoint - I had the lid off mine the other day! :rolleyes:
