I guess this is my intro post/thread. It's a problem I'm having and I've done the search thing but didn't see an answer for what I'm having an issue with. Maybe I missed it?
I have an external hard drive connected to my ViP722K that my wife uses to store her movies on. I have 2 of the ViP722K's that I use and it went between both DVR's without an issue until now. A couple weeks ago we had a transformer blow and power went out to our whole house while we were watching TV and the hard drive was connected at the time also but not being used. I never checked to see if the hard drive was okay at the time because I didn't think it would have had an issue. (Not sure if that's what caused it or not). So tonight I was going to transfer more movies over for her and the hard drive says it needs to be formatted to work with Dish Network. So I took it to the other DVR and it's saying the same thing. My other external drives I have all work fine between either DVR. I'm hoping that there's a way to back this drive up before I have to format it and then reinstall the movies for her??? Or am I going to have to tell your she's SOL and start over????
Appreciate any help or info that you all have. Thanks.
