Sky+ Amstrad 280 DXR, how to fix dodgy hard drive/freezes etc


Active Member
Hi Guys,

Just fixed this one, I wasn't so sure the drive was up the shoot, so I took it out put it in my PC.

Vista Error checked it on boot up and fixed issues, I then formated the drive with NTFS even though Sky reformats it.

Done an indepth error check on the disk, it then cam eback with no errors at all.

Popped back in my sky box, it came back to life yipeee

Done a full format by doing services -> 4 0 1 -> select 8.

All is well, this fixes the drive stutering issues and random reboots. Will give long term feedback.

Works well in the short term though.
