I have a 501 as a second receiver. It's still working, but the disk is making more noise than usual. I think it may soon quit. Is there a way to remove that drive and copy an image over to a new drive using a PC and some software. If that's possible I need to do it before the 501 HDD dies.
I'd like to keep the 501 rather than get a newer one due to the $5 they charge per month for them.
Thanks for any help!
