Seagate Disk Compatibility
« on: April 10, 2012, 12:15:07 AM »

Hi all,
some day ago I bought an DNS-345.
I'm deciding what kind of disks to use with it.

I saw that WD models (caviar green 2/3 Tb) are fully covered in compatibility list.

Are the following disks compatible with DNS-345?

Seagate Barracuda 3 Tb - model type ST3000DM001
Seagate Barracuda 2 Tb - model type ST2000DM001

Thank you in advance.

Unfortunately, given how new this product is, all we have to go on is the compatibility list and the experience of end-users who tried different HDD models and posted on this board.

Dlink is asking for trouble by doing this, you do realize it that? Would you by a car if the manufacture built it from scratch and never tested its road worthiness and said "all we have to go on is the experience of the customers who buy our cars?" Most likely no one will buy it. :)

Anyhow I have two older style 1.5TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 and two WD Green 1.5TB, the info status shows the drives are all okay after restarting the system however the disk manager says the RAID 5 is degraded but won't tell me which drive it thinks is the problem so I don't know if if its the one the Seagates or WD Green drives. Anyhow its doing a rebuild which has been running since 9am EST today and its now 7:16pm and its only 80% of the way through. In a production environment it should never take this long.

One other interesting to point out is the drive light on the front display; if one the drives were blinking; if that's what it's supposed to do when a drive is degraded; I would know which one has failed. If this is not already a feature then it should also be added to the wishlist so that people know which drive they need to replace in the event one does actually fail.

I think DLINK must test at least the 4/5 top 2 to 3tb disks on the market to give to their customers a base for a secure buy. What do you think about this JavaLawyer?

Seagate top disk (for NAS, not talkin' about faster disks):
Seagate Barracuda 2 Tb - model type ST2000DL003 (5900rpm)
Seagate Barracuda 3 Tb - model type ST3000DM001
Seagate Barracuda 2 Tb - model type ST2000DM001

I agree with you 100%. I'm sure D-Link will publish an up-to-date list of compatible HDDs... I'll keep my eyes open.  :-\

I am running two Seagate Barracuda 3 Tb - model type ST3000DM001 in my new DNS-345. The NAS seems to be working fine with the drives but only after upgrading to firmware version 1.01. I do have extremely slow transfer speeds, though; this may be due to the HDD. I don't know for sure.

I have 3 DM001 Seagate drives. For ensure performance and stability, check hdd firmware release. Latest revision in CC4H (my previous version was CC4C)...

check hdd firmware

Is that the same thing as the NAS firmware, or is that a firmware for the specific hard drive? If it is for the hard drives themselves, how do you upgrade them?

Each hard drive has a firmware. The revision is printed on the label. For fw upgrade you need to connect it direcly to your pc (via windows or with a bootable cd)... Check your hdd vendor for details...
