I get this error which I understand is a failed HDD. The stealer wants upwards of $450 to put a new drive in. If I source a replacement drive can I just change it out or does something need to be loaded on it?
Has anyone done this themselves successfully?

The HDD has to be replaced. You can't do it by your self. Software has to be equal.
How old is the 48??

Hello Henrik, the Bose unit was purchased in November 2005. I have step by step instructions with photographs showing disassembly of the unit and I can purchase the same 40GB Toshiba disk drive elsewhere. I am just concerned that the hard disk may need pre-loading with some software.

Hi there
I know for a fact, that the HDD needs this.

Hi DMC and thank you for the link. Your information looks promising. I have a couple of questions.

You said you used ROBOCOPY to copy from your failed Bose drive to your new drive and it worked. You didn't mention if you were able to get the new hdd to work with just the DATA folder on it and formatted to the correct partition size before you made the ROBOCOPY. You also said there were six files in the data folder on the new bose drive. Do you know if your new drive would have worked without them?

I'm not certain you have proved you can simply buy a new hdd, format and partition it correctly and create a DATA folder and it will work.

BTW - is the Bose disk SATA or IDE?

After you did the ROBOCOPY was new drive noe C: or did it stay as F: and F: worked OK in your bose?

Thanks once again for your link and I lok forward to hearing from you.

Hi Greg,

Apologies for delayed reply first. I guess simply copy-paste from Windows explorer would also work. Maybe I was too cautious by using ROBOCOPY function.
As I said the new BOSE HDD (Toshiba) was having only one folder on the first partition, named DATA with 6 files only:
NETWORK.BK
NETWORK.DAT
PLAYLIST.BAK
PLAYLIST.DAT
PRESET_NAMES.BAK
PRESET_NAMES.DAT
These files are not big and I have already sent to many people be e-mail. Some of these are text files, but some of them are binary files, so I am sure that just putting a new disk, properly partitioned, but without these files, will not work.
I have not tried my WD disk with DATA folder only; I immediately copied all folders and my music back to the WD disk since I was eager to see if it would work. And it did work! I see no reason why it would not work if I had copied only DATA folder from the original BOSE HDD to my WD disk. If you remember, I tried the original BOSE HDD first in my media center and it was Ok errors messages 801 and 802 are gone.
BOSE HDD Toshiba is IDE disk. So go and buy any 2.5 IDE disk. It goes without saying that I had to buy IDE to USB adapter in order to connect BOSE (Toshiba) and WD disk to my laptop and also Y cable because both Toshiba and WD disk are taking more than 0.5A which is maximum what USB port can provide.
Drive letter is irrelevant since Windows assign it dynamically. In my case, when I was creating partitions on WD drive, Windows suggested the first free letter which was H: in my case, and the next partition was I: But does not matter when you put it in media center.

Hi DMC - I purchased a USB to Sata/IDE adapter and after many tries I was able to get it going for long enough for me to copy all the files, in excess of 100 CD's. What a relief. I'm waiting on a Toshiba HDD the same as the one in the Bose, I don't want to take chances and buy another and perhaps not have a driver.

An update on robocopy as I couldn't get your parameters to work

>robocopy G:\ C:\Bose /S /DCOPY:T

This copied from G: to C:\ and preseved datestamps.

I thought my drive was cooked and indeed I got the dreaded 801 - 802 errors as soon as I put it back in the unit. Buy yourself one of the adapters and google is your friend. You will find a lot of info on getting that drive going one last time, long enough to make a copy of all your music.

I'll post again once I've got the new drive and got it working, hopefully later this week.

I was able to find the same drive online for AUD$79, plus AUD$50 for the adapter I'm way in front if it works, AND, I'll still have all my music. The shop I got a quote from was for around AUD$400-500 and no attempt to save/restore the stored music.

I am still getting an error after copying the data from my old drive to a new drive. The new drive is exactly the same as the old one. I tried robocopy and even tried making an image of the old drive and copying it to the new drive.

I can't see any difference between the old drive and the new. Is there any secret in the second 8GB partition? Mine is not formatted.

Hi DMC,

I've format/partitions my HD as your suggestions also I've create those 6 files with zero byte and connect in media center, use update disk to update music database then finish with no error code 801 and 802 anymore. Unfortunately I cannot store any music, sometimes they stored until 100% after that the said "no music availabel". Please send me (paiboolsilp@gmail.com) those original 6 files since the torrent link not working anymore.
Thanks in advance.

I tried again to get it working using the steps as suggested by DMC without success.

Has anyone else been able to format a a new drive and copy the that data from the old drive and get it to work?

If so, please advise step by step how you achieved this.
