Amstrad DRX780 HDD Upgrade

Postby Interstice » Sat Mar 03, 2012 3:04 pm

Hi,
In pulled my 780 apart today to remove the 320 HDD and fit a new 1TB Hitachi purely to increase the recording capacity. I connected the 320 to my laptop to use copy+ to lift the original content to an image file (which would then be written to the new Hitachi HDD). However copy+ tells me that it does not support the Darwin EPG. I suspect somebody out there has a workaround for this or do I have to wait for copy+ to overcome this? I don't want to lose the original disk content (wife would kill me).
I also noticed the PSU looks a little heat stressed so am considering replacing all of the capacitors therein, I cannot find a kit of capacitors. Does anyone have a list of these or know of a kit supplier?
Many thanks

Amstrad DRX780 HDD Upgrade

Anybody had any success with a 1TB hdd upgrade in the Amstrad HD box?

Im considering the Samsung SpinPoint F1 HD103UJ 1TB since there are a lot of people using these in other boxes.

Thanks
