I was wondering if you can use WD gold in a home NAS like my cloud devices (EX4100) and others. instead of using WD red

Hi @RED78,

Please refer to the article:My Cloud Home: Hard Drive Compatibility: My Cloud OS 3: Install phpMyAdmin App on Firmware 2.21.126 or Lower

Have you opened a Support Case? If not opened, for more information, please contact the WD Technical Support team for the best assistance and troubleshooting:

That did not answer my question, that I asked. A simple yes or no would of been enough.
But this brings to another question, do I need that software in order to use WD gold for storage on my NAS (EX4100) or I don’t need it and I can just raid format it in order to use the WD GOLD HDD?
