Hi guys, does anyone know how to replace the built in 160g hard drive in the Panasonic DMR-EH57 with a larger 1 or 2TB drive. I can do it physically but am aware it might take a bit of programming or software. Any advice is appreciated. Cheers, MB

I would like to do this so I can transfer the many Mini DV home videos I have via firewire onto the drive

Why not get a media player instead. It can stream your videos from your PC via your home network.
I've just been given an A C Ryan Playon HD2 (Birthday Prezzie) and it's absolutely fantastic. I installed an internal 1Tb HDD and copied a lot of stuff from the PC. The HDD is not essential as it will happily stream videos from the PC's HDD via Network Cable or WiFi with no trouble and plays about every file type imaginable. Only about twice the price of a 1 Tb HDD too.

Yes I have been considering a media player that records as well. I was thinking the Panasonic EH57 because it interacts with my Panasonic camcorder, records in MPEG2, creates chapters automatically, can burn to DVD etc. I think I just need to find some software for Mac or PC that keeps all the DV info and can capture via firewire into high quality reasonable sized files then use the media player for viewing. 1 hour of raw DV can be 12gb! If you know of a good capture converter on the fly program please let me know, cheers
