Was it an oddball connector, a non-phillips head, like one of these?





Let us know how it works out.

i guess it was most similar to #2, went to home depot twice got what i thought would work it didnt
so then i broke out my dremel, that solved it
right now cloning seagate sata hdd to maxtor ide hdd
then ill put original seagate sata hdd back in and wait for replacement seagate 250gb sata hdd
when replacement arrives ill take the maxtor ide hdd and clone that to the new seagate 250gb sata hdd
then if all goes well i should have a 6412 with a 250gb sata hdd instead of 120gb sata hdd

I forgot one that is similar:



I just wouldn't want to get hammered with some DVR "purchase" fee if it was just a matter of having an anti-tamper screw head.

Can you use a washer with new/different screws to bridge the gap? If they are on the bottom they might not ever see it!

What is the model number of the 250gb sata seagate drive that you used?

Seagate 7200 8mb cache SATA ST3250823AS of new 250 gb drive 6412 will only recognize 160gb but it better than nothimg

Somewhere I read that the 6412 has a limitation of 160GB built into the firmware. This would account for the reason your 250GB shows up as a 160GB
