    Why does a mod have to step in, to say that he was present when I hooked up my external drive?

    No, it's not. My 2TB external one is the one the receiver's using. I connected it, turned everything on, and walked away. Period. Of course, Rich was here to see everything, so he must know. :rolleyes:

    I cannot admit that which is not possible to admit. All I know is what I did, and that's the fact, Jack. :kisshead:

    Well, its a waste of my time because with all my experience its not true. A few days ago I powered everything off, and when I powered up, the HR34 got going before my EHD, so when it booted I had no recordings and no series links.

    Fact. You can claim whatever you want, but it just aint TRUE.

    It's true if it did happen, and it did. I connected it, turned everything on...voila!

    That was for you, because you are obviously delirious.

    No one needs to be there to see anything. It's NOT possible! I even provided you with numerous links to prove it's not.

    It spins, but what other purposes it serves are unknown. And it has it's own set of SLs.

    I think what he was saying is that Lord Vader's internal drive is still the one in use. It's the ONLY thing that would explain still having his SL's, if he actually does.

    Does everything have to be spelled out for you? What I wanted to say would be prohibited by the Mods.

    I saw what happened when I plugged in two different HDDs and got no transference of SLs. As I knew I would. And I did it using a Thermaltake docking station, the external device that is so simple a neophyte could hook it up but you can't.

    Illogical.

    They cannot "prove" anything unless they were here to see what I did. Sorry, but that's a fact.

    He might have put a previously used HDD in. That or he's on the internal. No other way to do it that I know of.

    But he'll never admit he's wrong.

    No, it's not! There's SOLID proof all over this board that the SL's are stored on the hard drive and do NOT remain on the unit when the hard drive is changed. THAT is a fact.

    I cannot admit that which is not true. I also cannot deny what happened--I connected the drive, turned it on, & walked away pleased.

    I have never said they weren't "stored on the hard drive."
