There are 1000s of cheap USB video capture adapters available on FleaBay, any one of them should do the job.

What make model drive is it? If it is networked, can't you view the download progress via the web interface?

Wow, that's some serious hardware. Never touched one of those. Did you check if there is a hack/plugin to view the progress via the web interface?
