[QUOTE=CrazyCanuck;2038003]The 3223 might recognize the 160GB from the 5045. If it does great, I would suggest not to use the full HDD erase command as it would only reformat up to 80GB in the 3223. You’ll need to erase individual titles under the edit command.
I’ve upgraded the HDDs in my 4 ILO HD04s (2x250, 1x200, 1x160) and that’s the way that I have to work with it in order to keep the additionnal space on the HDDs.
Not sure about the links that tazprime provided, I tried looking at them but I need to actually register to that forum for them to allow me to see their postings.[/QUOTE]
If you use the hacked firmware from mikeb in the links given you can erase the hdd to your hearts content as it will not go back to the original hdd’s capacity, but will always give you the new full larger capacity of the new hdd.
The other way is to format yor larger hdd in FAT32 with 64K clusters, but you will lose the extra capacity if you did a disk erase.
