I have the same model DVR and I am having the same problem noted above. I have ensured the CD drive is the primary slave and the single hard drive is the secondary master. I have tried InstaCake and 3 different PC's (even taking the drive with me on vacation to my sister's in Indiana to give it a shot).
I always receive the same message at the end about it being successful but then ending with:
umount2: Device or resource busy
umount: /dev/hdb busy-remounted read-only
Is the above an error message that must be corrected or it is just a standard message and I must be encountering a problem elsewhere?
