Does anyone know what kind of cable is used in a HR34 to power the hard drive?
Its a sata drive....it will be a SATA power connector...
15 pin SATA.
Know that you are not permitted by the owner of the HR34 (DIRECTV) to modify or otherwise muck about inside it.
It's so easy to add an external eSATA drive, so why mess with the internal drive?
Should have been more specific, I am asking about the connector that goes to the board, not the drive.
Because the unit had already been opened and the hard drive, sata, and hd power cable removed.
Adding the drive is easy. Finding the right combination of drive and enclosure is the subject of a very, very long thread.
And the concensus of that thread is that ThermalTakes and Antecs with any green Caviar model from WD seem to work the best. I recommend EURS.
1. It has recently surfaced that the TT enclosures have a power switch issue.
2. For whatever reason, a lot of people come home with Seagate drives and "never heard of it" enclosures so apparently the word isn't getting out.
