My Direct TV box crashed and I now have a new box. Unfortunatly, I have recorded videos that I want to save from the original unit. My old box is an RCA DVR40. I pulled the hard drive out of the unit and am able to connect the drive via USB to my windows XP computer. It recognizes the drive but I can't access it. Can someone tell me the programs I need to view and extract the files from the drive so I can save my videos? I'm not a programmer nor do i know linux but I know my way around a computer and can follow clear instructions well. Thanks.
