Thanks are due to Lordsmurf for 'guiding' the selection of which DVD recorders to try next.

This is going a lot faster than anticipated, and I didn't want to flood the forum with too many separate topics. So.. now, A Late Delivery from Avalon.

This Software can read a Hard Drive removed from the DVD recorder and connected to a PC and copy its recordings over to the PC... multiple versions have been released.

These are pre-Beta, Alpha quality releases. They work and have had some testing, but may still have quirks or bugs. Commentary and bug reports are being invited to improve and refine the functionality.

The latest version includes support for all of the recorders included in the last Alpha, whether it was released to the public or not. The version number is displayed in the About box.

Alpha 1 included (Toshiba support) was version 4.3.1.00 (4.4 alpha)
Alpha 2 included (Philips / Mag support) : 4.3.2.00
Alpha 3 includes (RCA 8030 support) : 4.3.2.01

i.e. The Latest Alpha version of 4.3.2.01 contains support for the following:

Toshiba RD-XS32, 50, 52, 34, 54, 35, 55, 34SB, 34SJ extractions are working.
Philips 3575 and 3576 extractions are working.
Magnavox 2160 and 513 extractions are working.
RCA DRC8030 extractions are working.

The Alpha 4.3.2.01 is available for download from (here)
I've posted a video of the process with the 3575 (here)

If you are adverse to running the software on Windows, the software is also known to work under WINE on Linux, and there are several options for running on the Mac.

Details are available on this page (How to run on Linux and Mac)

Have a great evening.

addendum (correction):

"Details are available on this page (How to run on Linux and Mac)"

should have had a different link:
