Title: DNR-202L can't seem to recognize my HDD... HELP!
Post by: ToolWarden on August 28, 2014, 06:46:48 PM
Hi All,
Need a hand.  Trying to set up my DNR202L, and even though I have a WD HDD attached, the Setup Wizard isn't seeing it.  I'm puzzled.  Any suggestions?
Thx.

Try a USB flash drive to test. If that works then it might be that your WD drive is either not compatible or has some sort of volume encryption enabled.

If the USB flash drive works, try reformatting the WD HDD on your PC and then reconnect it back to the 202L. Also ensure the drive is powered externally.
