    Yes it is possible. I'm not yet sure how big you can go up to, but when you do you will need to Format the HDD (after HDD change)

    You turn on the player and wait for MENU Screen. Then hold buttons AV and STOP. After 3-4 sec. see you FORMAT on the display. Your standard IDE HDD is formated, clean and ready for recording:)

    Hope this helps

    Also, does anyone know if they can take data from the dvd hdd to a normal PC???

    Scrisp, thanks for that, don't want to appear stupid, but do you have to purchase extra hard drive and add it, if so it this easy, or is their extra space on the machine that you just activate?

    Sorry, can't help you with your question.

    Kirkleech yes you need a new hard drive but I havent heard of anyone successfully upgrading to a larger drive on the DTH7000.

    I heard several reports of some who tried but the larger drive only installed as a 40 gig.

    I also read somewhere that it is not advisable to use a 7200 rpm drive as it takes longer to spin up and the Thomson can time out.

    Having said that, everything above is what others have posted and not my personal experience, I would also dearly like to upgrade my DTH7000.

    Scrisp, follow the link below for downloading info to PC
