[qanda]This question is published in the hardware section for the Philips DVDR3450H. Click here to view full specs.[/qanda]I have a Philips DVDR3450H out of order. I’ve tried to install DVD recorder’s hard disk into my PC, but I can’t find it in control panel; however, I can see it in system’s hard disk’s, like ST3160212ACE hard disk, but I cannot see anything inside disk. Hard disk is not out of order; wich way to connect to it? is there any driver to install ? Thanks

It’s probably written in a propriatary format. Most HD video recorders are. You could reformat the disk if you wanted to use it as a disk drive on the computer but that would erase the contents of the disk. I don’t know how to view the current contents though.
