Best 1tb drive for Amstrad DRX780UK Help..

Postby surfgeek » Tue Jun 15, 2010 4:42 pm

Hi, could do with some expert advise please.
I have an Amstrad DRX780UK, I bought a Seagate Barracuda 500gb ST3500418AS at the weekend, transfered my recordings using copy+ and it will not work with my box. Stuck in standby. Tried loads of times to do a hard reset from the top panel, checked cables etc.... Can only assume that the Seagate is not compatible with the Amstrad, now using the Seagate as a backup drive on my macbook pro.

Can somebody please advise what 1tb drives 100% work with the Amstrad DRX780UK.

Thanks in advance

Just this very minute upgraded my Amstrad DRX780 with a WD Caviar Black 1TB WD1001FALS and all good so far. Tried 2 recordings at once, live pause and playback for old planner entries.

Used Copy+ 1.2.0.7. and all good (thanks for the software!! :D )

Fingers crossed it remains stable :wink:
