i own 2 LG DR7622RW DVD recorders for about 2 years
both machines have undergone several repairs, after having problems reading discs.
in fact, one of them is at the moment in the vendor's lab for several weeks now
this recorder is perfect when it does its job, the problem is that writing and reading dvd discs is not reliable, i can never be sure that a recording i make will actually be there
so i thought that if i could add ah hard drive (or swap the DVD Drive for a hard drive) and "fool" the recorder to treat the HDD as its native drive, everything will be perfect
i have good hands and knowledge of drives in computers,
also i dont mind attaching the HDD externally or in any way.
dont mind either if it will see the hdd's capacity as only 4.37GB.
just looking for reliability
i guess the firmware has been designed to not recognize anything but the original DVD drive, but maybe there is a chance to overcome this
will appreciate any suggestions or any experience if someone tried this on any similar dvd recorder
p.s. if i had the money i wouldn't be bothering here, i would dump the thing and buy a good dvd recorder with hdd
