Oh, that hurt!
I've got 2 TT's setup with WD AVGP drives, no issues whatsoever...don't know why you had a problem making them work.
Well, different people have different experiences with most devices. I've never had one that didn't work.
Well I could no longer "fix" the ever increasing noise from my MX-1 fan and did not want to run fan-less in an enclosure (at least for the HR21-700) so I retired the MX-1 to my backup disk enclosure and ordered a Rosewill RX-358 V2.
It arrived, I transferred my WD20EADS I've been using for over a year to the enclosure and sadly it is not recognized. I fortunately had my old standby docking station
and am back up and running. Strange because I use an older version of the Rosewill with the same drive on my other HR21-700. Also, I can place a different W20EADS in the new enclosure and access it on my PC. Time for some investigation over the weekend.
I've read several posts about the Rosewills being noisy. Never had one, mostly because of those posts and my enduring faith in the TTs.
My one and only Rosewill enclosure only lasted about 6 months before the fan failed, and Rosewill doesnt stock ANY replacement parts for them....I called their tech support just looking to purchase on my dime a replacement internal fan, and they said there is nothing we can do for you
My current Rosewill has been in service from the same time I put the now defunct MX-1 online and is still working well wo/issue. Just wierd that the "new generation" is causing issues. Plenty of downtime next week to investigate!!!!
I just got an HR24-200 and I can't get it to recognize the esata drive. I have tried 2 different enclosures and 2 different cables. Are there known issues with the 24-200? Also, does Directv support esata to the point that they would replace it for this reason?
I know it isn't using the external because I recorded something on the internal before hooking it up. I have rebooted several times to no avail.
You didn't mention unplugging the DVR which is required.
I have never done that before. Is it really required? I will try that.
dminches what kind esata do you have with your HR20-700?
One of them has a Thermaltake and the other has a Roswell.
I unplugged the DVR, rebooted and still no esata.
You are: Unplugging both the HR and the TT from the wall. Then plugging the TT in and giving it time to spin up. Then plugging the HR in, right? Since you have other external devices, I'm assuming you followed this procedure each time.
Jack, if you're considering a Rosewill enclosure, I would advise against it. I've been reading too many negative posts about them.
Well, it turns out it was the EVDS drive. Has anyone determined if the Seagate ST2000DL003 drives are acceptable to use?
I think WD has a five year warranty on their drives. At least some of them do. Don't know about the EVDS. I'd certainly try to return it.
Stick that Seagate in and let us know if it works. I'm on pins and needles...:lol:
The Seagate ST2000DL003 (in a Thermaltake dock) has been working nicely with my HR24-200. So far no issues reported. I bought this drive (2 TB) for 79.99 before the floods. Hopefully it can last and work well.
If you or anybody else finds anything out it would be greatly appreciated! I just purchased the RX-358 V2 to replace my MX-1 which had been working for several years, but I just couldn't take the ever increasing noise.
I plugged in the Rosewill and it caused an error on start up that prevented me from even getting to the diagnostics menu. The diagnostic code I received at the end of the "there was a problem with your storage device..." message was 75-830, which after calling customer service was told that it means there is a problem with the drive.
There wasn't an issue with the drive because I could plug the drive into the MX-1 and it was recognized by diagnostics and checked out fine but once I switched back to the Rosewill it refused to boot.
I thought that it may be a formatting problem so I formatted the drive and it didn't do the trick either
So now that I don't have any recordings on the drive I'm running off of the internal drive on my HR21-700 for the time being so I don't have to deal with the noise of the MX-1.
Are there any other enclosures that people are having luck with? I've skimmed over some issues with the ThermalTakes and I don't want to buy another MX-1 because of the cost and the fan issue.
Thanks for the work everybody, this forum has been a huge help!
By the way I have a 1TB WDC WD10EACS-00ZJB0
