I opened the box to find the actual model # (thanks for the tip Rich) It is a WD 30EZRX and Lucky13 is using one. It could be a little tricky get it working initially as detailed below. But a simple fix if I have the same issue.
Update on the above post.
The HR44 would not format the WD30EZRX. As Lucky13 did I connected it to a HR24 it formatted the HDD and I then reconnected it to the HR44 it then formatted the HDD and seems to be working ok so far. At some point I will connect it to the PC to see if it is using the full 3TB.
After getting the hard drive working I did have a problem come up with the HR44 not being able to use the play list on the HR24. I probably created the issue during the swapping of the drives and the relocating of some connections to my UPS. After searching here and finding a suggestion to check the whole home menu and the status of what each HR was recognizing in the network I determined the HR24 was the problem location. Then as suggested here I ran thru the network set up on the HR24 and this seems to have fixed the issue although I did have to do it twice as the problem returned.
1. Is there a topic or tip that has the basic trouble shooting recommendations for the whole home deca system?
2. Is there a sequence that should be followed to reboot the whole home network and deca?
3. When the tech was doing the install he said unplugging the power inserter would cure a lot of issues. Also he said D* required the power inserter to be connected directly to an outlet not to a UPC or power strip. Is this correct?
The deca module is connected to a UPS.
