I'm planning on buying a Panasonic DMR recorder with HDD (some later model, like EH575) and change the HDD to SSD (looking for recorders with sata interface).
Is this possible, have someone tried it?
(HDD change is possible in lots of recorders, only formatting is needed by the recorder itself for it's own file system)
My father got an DMR-EH55 or similar, but the hard disk is getting noisy in it. I'm thinking about refurbishing a used one, with the above written SSD and a new cooling fan so it will be quiet as possible.

Great, thanks the info! I'll get the ingredients and build it.
Look @ the manual and/or mfr website for info: you don't want to put in a drive larger than the largest drivespace expected by their firmware, otherwise it's wasted space and wasted money (unless you plan on repurposing later).
Example: some recorders expect 320GB max. Going to 500GB drive? It'll repartition & reformat to 320GB, leaving the other space unformatted and inaccessible to the machine, even if you try to format it yourself.
