Seagate drives with EX4100


#1

Hi all

I am looking at the EX4100 for my photography
I already have 2 x Seagate NAS drives and wondered if they would be OK in this?

Anyone know if they can be used or are WD red drives all that work

TIA Jim

I use 2 Seagate drives, no problem!


#3

Thanks. Now I can use my Seagate NAS drives


#4

What size are the drives? They ought to be exactly the same in all respects.


#5

They’re 3TB Seagate NAS drives
Looking at getting another 2

Heloo TreKronor,
I have Seagate ST3000DM003 installed but not working!!
did you go through some steps to make it work for you?
thank you,
Essam,

Sure, you have to initilize (build up the RAID / JBOD) the drives, but that’s all. I use Seagate-, Hitachi-, etc drives without any problems in my two EX4100 (one EX4100 with RAID, one EX4100 with JBOD with different mixed drives)!

Isn’t there a way to do it without formatting the hard drive?
thank you,
