    Sony T-60- "Welcome, powering up"

    I have programmed my hard drive with 25extreme. I hooked up my receiver and I got a "Welcome, Powering up" message. It has not gone away. I have waited several hours and reloaded the software too. Any suggestions????

    I would make sure.
    The message you are getting is from the prom.
    I don't believe your drive is being recognized.
    Could be the cables.
    More likely the jumper.

    It is not a jumper it is a software option.

    search turbo

    I don't think this is the problem.

    You may have a bad image of xtreme or more likely you do not have it jumpered correctly.

    I know you say it is jumpered corectly but the diagram on the drive is a little confusing.

    here is a link to Maxtor/Quantom regarding the TiVo drives

    I get this from time-to-time on my test T60 box. I unplug the power, wait for drive to spin down, and repower - and it loads.

    Also make sure all cables are seated. Unplug and replug them - flat flex cables too.

    Have also heard of a guy whose drive power contacts were opening up inside the connector (from lots of drive swapping) - look and see if they've started to spread - a common problem with these cheap-cheap-cheap-cheap PC power cables. A needle-nose should fix them.

    I still can't get it to work !!! Argghhhh!!

    Can you tell me what you did to get this to work…I’m still having the same problems. I get powering up then the screen goes blank with static then powering up.

    I have a 40 GB Quantum drive . Jumpered master. I have experience building computers and am confident of it’s master jumper status.

    I upgraded it with a 25xtreme t60 image CD for a 40 GB hard drive while jumpered slave on the secondary IDE

    All cable appear to be secure. I’m at my wits end….


    Can you please help….

    try removing all jumpers from the drive and rebooting the system. If that doesn't work, let me know.

    I had something similar and solved it by taking the drive out and zero'ed the initrd. It happened after I ran tivoMAD (or what ever the expansion program is called! ). Worked like a charm after that. So, give that a try.

    I tried installing a 60gb maxtor in mine with no luck. Then i finally broke down and went to do xtreme on my 40gb and it worked first time.

    With the 60 in, i got the same results you are getting now.

    Never did find out what's wrong, but are you able to hack it with just your original drive in? Start simple and work up to harder.
