    Yes you can try what i tried.
    I took the HDD out from Pioneer DVR, and used as an USB drive with my laptop. I run several HDD recovery softwares, and finelly I found this:
    Stellar Phoenix BSD - Data Recovery Software
    It was good becaouse the Pioneer DVR HDD formated with OpenBsd Linux system.
    I saved 24 Gb file. The only problem was, that mor than one movie was in a large file. You cab later edit (seperat) it.
    Could you write me, what happend with your Hdd?

    Hi isakiel,
    I use MsWIndows XP on my laptop. And used the BSD version of the Stellar Phoenix program.

    Hey all, I realize this post is quite old but it is still very relevant in Google searches for corrupt Pioneer DVR harddrives. I had a 633H drive corrupt on me last week. I wrote a few scripts to help me recover the contents successfully (which I have completed). You can see all the fun details here: http://knoopgroup.com/blog/pioneer-dvr-harddrive-recovery-tools/
