DNS 321 with a 3 TB Western Digital HDD Problems

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I recently acquired a used DNS 321 and I was trying to get it setup with my 3 TB Western Digital Green HDD, but I can't seem to make it through the formatting process for some reason.

The hard drive shows up properly on the first screen.
509

I have tried formatting using both EXT2, and EXT3.
413

It will normally make it to about 15% before it stops.
470

And then this error shows up.
429

At first, I just pulled the drive out of my computer, and put it in the DNS, leaving all of my info, and the original partition on it, but I read online to start fresh with no partitions or data, so I deleted my partition. The same exact thing happens. I have also tried updating the firmware. If anyone could help me out, I would greatly appreciate it.

It seems likely that the DNS-321 doesn't support drives above 2.2TB.

I'm curious, if you move the drive over to the other slot and try again, does the error code change to 18?

I don't want to try it now, because I gave up on that, and backed all of my data up to it. I pulled a 2 TB drive out of an external I had laying around, thinking it would work fine, but for some reason the drive won't format in the DNS 321, and when I hook it up to my pc now, it says it can't be initialized... Is it dead?

Found this in one of Sean's posts - try it:
Quote:
Open the Start Menu, in the search line type diskpart, press Enter
Type list disk , press Enter
Type select disk X (where X is the number your 3TB drive shows up as), press Enter
Type clean, press Enter
Type convert gpt, press Enter
Type create partition primary, press Enter
Type format quick fs=ntfs, press Enter
Type assign, press Enter
Type exit, press Enter
I think you can skip the "convert gpt" line. wink.gif Do do "clean all" if "clean" doesn't work.

If it can't be partitioned from the command line, something probably happened to the drive.
