m0nkey: A brand new MTV PSU did not fix my hard drive issues, nor did plugging the unit into another power point (in case the one it was in was a bit suss), so I gave up and bought a new one - the 3700.
Thus, I now have a 3600 with a 1TB green hard drive for sale, if anyone is interested... the internals of the machine look fine to the naked eye, but we did find the plug outlet on the back of it seemed a bit loose, so this cld be the source of the problem.
If anyone's interested, pls sing out...
I'm interested. Are you in Auckland?
I'm also keen to hear how you find your new 3700 compares with the 3600.
