Hi, I’ve recently bought a new WD80EFAX (8TB Red) for my EX4100 NAS.
It’s not recognized although I can hear the drive spinning.
NAS detects the drive details (make, serial number) but reports the volume as failing, and I can’t format it. Front light is flashing red.
When I connect it to my PC, it’s not recognized by BIOS at all (ASUS Z370).
I’ve tried a SATA to USB adapter, same story.
One odd thing, when powering it up, I can hear clicking sounds for a couple of seconds, then it starts spinning.
Am I missing something or is the drive faulty?
