I removed my 3.5'' hard drive with all my recorded shows, and placed it into an enclosed case with an external power supply and fan. my new receiver  does not recognize the contents of the  drive , nor does my computer ( no shows or folders listed) but does show the device is ready to use and does show safe to disconnect drive in task bar . the  drive was formatted in the az  + when it was originally installed 3 years ago . what am I missing/ or needs to be done to read my drive ? thanks

Which model AZBox?

What kind of new receiver?

What kind of computer?

VLC and SMPlayer should be able to play recordings made with the AZBox, but to do that requires your "computer" be able to recognize the Linux EXT2 filesystem used by the AZBox. Supposedly there is a Windows driver for EXT2, but I've never tried, as I use mostly Linux on my computers anyway. If your "new receiver" doesn't recognize files on your AZBox's HD, most likely either the new receiver doesn't understand the transport stream files the AZBox created (the problem I have with my AZBox ME for h.264 recordings), or the new receiver doesn't recognize the EXT2 filesystem. Possibly the new receiver needs to have EXT2 filesystems mounted manually. If your computer only has Windows, you could burn a Linux live CD or DVD to disc or USB stick and boot that to play those files with the Linux VLC or SMPlayer versions. If your external device is USB2, you should be able to connect it to an AZBox to play its contents.

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
