Default Re: Sky + Hardrive

1. Hard drive (technically, it's hard disk drive or HDD)

2. It definitely has a hard drive. Depending on the model, it's either SATA or IDE. Lot's of good info on them here: http://www.morlocks.co.uk/sky.htm

Copying the info to your PC may be a bit complicated: http://www.satcure.co.uk/tech/page18.htm#drive.

Here's some software that will copy the contents of the Sky+ drive: http://www.copyplus.artisswebdesign.co.uk/
