InstantCake Help

I purchased InstantCake to help me add another hard drive to my DirecTiVo. My DirecTiVo is a Samsung SIR-S4080R running version 6.2. It had a Western Digital 80 GB drive. I purchased a Western Digital 250 GB drive to add to it. I tried using mfstools on my own first but after setting up the drives and reinstalling them in my DirecTiVo it just reboots each time it gets to the screen saying that you are only a few minutes away from getting to use the tivo. msinfo on those two drives says the mfs_load_zone_map is corrupt.

So I purchased InstantCake and burned that on a CD so that I could boot up my PC and it gets to the screen that says "Your cake is in the oven!" but it only restores 1430 out of 1453 megabytes (98.48%) and the compression percentage becomes unreadable as it just flips through all kinds of numbers. I have tried the 6.2 and the 6.1 version of InstantCake. I have tried booting off their PTVNet tools CD and using my InstantCake CD with that. I have tried with both drives, and with each drive alone. I always get the same problem when it is restoring the same byte (It is byte 1325 of 1453 91.22% on the 6.1 CD). I have also tried in two different PCs. Although I have only burned the ISOs on a PC that uses Roxio Easy CD Creator.

Any more helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
