At first I got 75% free and I tried to clean the planner etc. I then got ..No recording available.. system problem..contact Sky. Reformated the drive in the PC and tried again. No luck. Called Sky - did not mention the bigge rdrive - could not fix it. Replaced the original 40Gb and noticed that the Sasung had become quite hot. No fan had come on at all. The original drive works ok with recordong/playback etc. Any idea why the Samsung did not work? What is the best drive option for the Amstrad please? I know some have used samsung before.
