Sky+ Amstrad 280 DXR Which hard drive?


Active Member

Has anyone upgraded one of these boxes, I had the infamous hard drive failure after 13 months of ownership.

I have tried several hard drives without success, all 160gb, same as the orginal. I have done a load of reserach without success, everyone seems to list for the Pace boxes or earlier amstrads, I know how fussy these boxes are.

Can anyone recommend a drive that works for this model

Do the Samsungs work, I'm not interested in buying from the upgrade company as they are blatantly overpriced and I can buy a new sky+ box for £30 more.

I managed to perform a low level format of my orginal drive using my PC however that only held out for a while.
