A quick fix if you want to keep the unit is replace the hard drive with the drive in the ESATA enclosure.

I have a HR21 with a bad hard drive. If I plug in a hard drive via esata, will the firmware format the drive via Esata or I'm still SOL and will need to get a replacement.....
What do you mean by "bad hard drive"?
