"Green" drives often don't work in a PVR because they "spin down" when not active and the PVR will not spin them up again properly. Many PVRs require either a purple, black, blue or red drive to function properly.

Sometimes it's possible to connect a green drive to a computer and delete the "green" firmware that makes them spin down.

After putting it off for a year I finally swapped my Hard Drive out after the price dropped to $60. I didnít even have to format it as it was recognized immediately upon start up. Iím thinking Iíll buy another HDD as a spare at that price.
