MBLD Getting New Harddrive with different type / version (Red, purple)

I have a WD Mybook live Duo with mirroring mode (RAID1), and now both hard disks are physically damaged, I am trying to buy a new hard drive with the same specifications as the previous hard disk (WD Green 3TB 64MB cache), but I have trouble finding wd green in my city (SEA-Indonesia), and I can only get one hard drive of the same type, is it possible to use a different type of hard drive (WD green + WD Red) even with the same capacity (3TB) in my MBLD?

Thanks, all the help will be appreciated

Unfortunately, it appears the answer is No.

Important: Replacement hard drives must be an exact Model-for-Model match with the hard drives originally shipped with the device from the factory.

For example: A WD Green model WD30EZRX-00SPEB0 must be replaced with another WD Green model WD30EZRX-00SPEB0 to function properly.


Thanks for the reply, I really appreciate it, but what if I replace both hard drives? so i will get rid the WD Green then using 2 x 3TB WD Red instead, is it still possible? (WD green is the default HDD when i buy for the first time)

If WD have stated that it must be Model-for-Model … then that would apply to all of them. (i assume)

Anyways, there’s not much info out there with people trying it … because it’s a risk and not to mention an expensive experiment to see if it works or not.

Only one way to find out for sure.

Let us know how the experiment goes.

Alright then, thanks so much for your help, I’m not sure I’ll try it anytime soon, but if it works, I’ll post here the details, sorry for bad language.
