    Can I put a hard disk from a Pace PVR3 into and Amstrad or Thompson box? I have a dead Pace box and want to know what my options are to swap the disk into another type of box. I've successfully done it from a Pace to a Pace box but wanted to know if it's possible to do it with other type.

    On a related note, what format is stuff stored in on the disk - if I connected the drive into a PC, what would I see?

    Ta.

    The disk is formatted in an obsolete MS-DOS format I understand. Roger
