      Old Sky HD Disc Write Protected

      Hi Guys

      I have justed replaced the 300GB Hard disk in my HD Box with a 1TB drive using copy+ and its all working well.

      I went to use the old Hard Disk on my PC and it reports that its write protected.

      Is it possible to remove the write protection on the old sky drives or have they done something to them.

      Thanks

      Paul

      Try using diskpart.exe from the Command Prompt. On Vista, follow:

      Sky HD Hard drive upgrade advice....

      The sequence looks the same in my Windows 7. Not sure about XP.
      Panasonic TX-P50G10B, Onkyo HTS 3305, Sky+HD Thomson 4E3007 (with upgraded PSU & WD5000AVDS HDD),
