Hello there just wondering if anyone found any other compatible internal
hard drives besides the ones below i have exhausted all resources on the net for the 622.
Every place seems to be sold out.. These are the major 4 seen on the 622 units..

Unit is not under warranty so might as well see if i can salvage it..

6L320S0 Maxtor 320 625,142,448 7200 SATA 150, 16 MB; seen in 622
ST3320832SCE Seagate 320 625,142,448 7200 SATA 150/300, 8 MB
WD3200JS-57PDB0 WD 320 625,142,448 7200 SATA 150/300, 8 MB; listed in 622 FW
WD3200KS-57PDB0 WD 320 625,142,488 7200 SATA 150/300, 16 MB; seen in 622

Thanks in advance..

Any of the 722-compatible 500GB drives should also work for more space.

OK, thick hint - get my post with a picture of 500 GB from 622HZ.
Look at Dishmod group and do find a message with same model, in that exactly post you'll see other 500 GB models and whole set of compatible HDDs for 622/722/622HZ.

OK, if you didn't want to research by yourself, or give up then I found something interesting to try - ST3500830SCE (approved), I've see it in Internet stores.

It means whether it works or not. :D

I already tried one of those from newegg and it definitely does NOT work in a 622. Works fine though in an EHD enclosure.

um, obviously the post right above yours proves what you just said to be incorrect.

just upgraded mine with the seagate drive. now except for black color and decoder chip, I have a 722. :D Almost double the internal space is nice.

after install, it booted twice, then came up and said the drive was corrupted (duh, nothing there yet) and it needed to erase it. Pushed ok and a few minutes later it was done. Just had to rebuild the timers and restore some stuff from the EHD. Better than new.
