Seagate would be Pipeline HD.2 trim for AV market...
Based on past experiences I wouldn't give you 2 cents for a Seagate drive.
I feel the same about WD.
Is the WD AVGP preferable over the WD20EURS? This is for an HR24 with a thermaltake dock.
The EURS model drives are AVGP drives.....
I have a 1TB WD EURS drive in an Antec enclosure connected to one HR20-700 and a 2TB WD EURS drive with a TT enclosure for another HR20-700. Both work perfectly well.
I am not sure why I am getting video stuttering and freezing with this combination.
I would bring the external drive to PC and would run two tests: one as-is; second - after installing bare drive into PC.
The program would be Victoria for Windows, while better get self-bootable CD with MHDD v4.6
Which HR are you using it on?
I just purchased this. I realized that the HD had been used briefly (2 hours) with another DVR so I hooked it up to my computer and deleted all the volumes on it. I just power cycled the HR24 with the drive attached to see if maybe that will clear up the issues.
deleting volumes ? shouldn't affect ... will see what you'll get after this easy "fix"
I just wanted to wipe it clean. That's all.
Just an opinion, but the 24-500s are a royal PITA when you're trying to put an external device on it.
But you have done it successfully, right? One of my other HR-24s is a 500 and the external dock worked fine from the get go.
What did you do to rectify issues?
Since the unit is owned I could just put it inside. Is that been your "fix"?
I am considering a G-Technology G-RAID 4 TB Dual External Hard Drive to go with a HR24/100, actually two of them. One for each. With the esata, will it recognize this drive? This may have been covered in a previous post, I apoligize in advance if I missed it. Any insight would be appreciated.
The HR2x series is only capable of 2TB of space, so as long as its 2TB mirrored and looks like a single 2TB drive, it should work in theory.
I haven't heard of anyone trying that enclosure so you'd be the first. As CCarncross said though you're limited to 2TB so you'd need to setup the enclosure to use RAID1.
Thanks for the info RunnerFL. Quick question, is there a "graceful" way to shutdown the enclosure? or just simply turn it off with the switch?
The enclosure itself? No, just hit the power switch. If you have it hooked up to a DVR though you should do a menu reset and pull the power when the front panel lights have gone off.
Excellent, what I thought since there doesn't seem to be an option.
I only had 2 identical unopened WD 3 TB Red drives around and used them in the Sans Unit and it will not format I get an error "Diagnostic Code - 75-411" when first booting to my HR-24.
I knew it wouldn't detect all 3TB but I thought it would at least format it to 2 TB. Is that the main reason for the error or something else? I don't want to go through 63 pages of working esata setups so if I were to go to a brick and mortar store what 2 - 2TB drives should I get? Any of the WD Greens?
