The file system used on DVD recorder hard drives is completely different from the ones used in Windows. There's no way to read that kind of drive with a Windows computer.

Some DVD recorders use Linux-style partitions, but the actual data and file format is typically unreadable even by Linux systems without using some specialized tools and arcane knowledge.

yeah, you have to plug it back into a recorder, pull the info, then you can mount it to your pc and format it for use.

Your shows are probably unrecoverable.

There are a few specific recorders for which recovery procedures have been developed, you could try asking your question at the link below to see if anyone can help you:
