    as I mentioned before, using SATA ports on the PC motherboard will reduce the time 10 times
    Can you check if SATA ports are there ? pictures ?

    Ummm, I don't see more then one one SATA connector used for internal HDD ... yeah, seems you should use USB ports - then your HDDs must be in enclosures.

    There are ten. 4 in front and 6 in back.

    Version does not indicate the version.

    Probably USB 2.0

    Would that make any difference?

    The only thing is that version of USB 2.0 is slower than version 3.0.

    Do not know what a SATA controller card. I do not know what a PCI slot is or what this would look like. I will take the simple way out and copy and paste the shows. If i knew someone that knows ant]ything about computers i would look into the PCI slot idea.

    you could consult and buy and install the PCIe SATA card (with two SATA connectors on a bracket of the card) from Fry's or similar store

    Would be easier and would not cost any monies to copy and paste the files.

    Can not do that because traveling would cost monies to get to your house. There for would not be free.

    Well that waste of monies and time. Not allowed to copy files from one hard drive to another. No wonder that Windows is so popular. Ubunto makes a simple task impossible.[​IMG]

    With getting this permision thing changef I might be able to copy the recordings from one external hard drive to the other. What ever a ROOT owner is.


    What I descovered is that I can copy recordings from the external hard drive from DISH Hopper to and drive with out any problems.
