So, after swapping disks around and trying for a few days at a time, I think that the 2TB Seagate pipeline disk I was using with my THR-22 is in fact what was causing the stuttering/dropout problems. It seems to work okay with the original internal disk, and with a 2TB WD green disk.

So now, I'd like to copy the programming from the Seagate disk to the WD disk. I'm relatively linux-proficient, and I was following the instructions in this thread.

I can't mount either disk, though. When I try
mount -t xfs -o rtdev=/dev/sda3 /dev/sda2 /mnt/new
I get an error "special device /dev/sda2 does not exist" (same thing for sdb2). I don't see any 'partition' devices in /dev, only /dev/sda and /dev/sdb (obviously there are several other device files there, but nothing else that starts with sd[a,b]).

I'm using gparted 0.4.6-1.

That thread have nothing to make TiVo THR22's drive copy.

Be sure your drive is discovered, try run in term window: fdisk -l
It could be protected somehow, like not spinning, etc

You could try dd cmd...
