I think the hard disk has died (or is dying) in my Live Hub. Sometimes it will play, sometimes it will stop playing mid-film and all you can hear from the box is ker-chunk, ker-chunk, ker-chunk. I’ve heard a few hard disks die before, and they sounded like this
It’s out of warranty, so I was thinking I could just whip the lid off, remove the existing disk, stick a new one in, and carry on…right?
I have a spare 1Tb SATA drive - 3.5", do I need to do anything to it first? Format it, partition it? How easy is it, once de-lidded, to swap the drives? When I boot it with a new drive in, will the software load up from some sort of ROM or do I need to flash it?
