I just installed 4 new (unformatted) 1.5TB Seagate drives into my new DNS-343 (FW 1.01), connected ethernet cable directly to computer (running Vista64), and turned it on for the first time, per instructions. When I run Easy Search (v188.8.131.52 and v184.108.40.206), the DNS-343 shows up (at 192.168.0.32). But when I click on it and highlight it, the "Configuration" button grays over and is not selectable. Therefore, I cannot even begin to format the drives.
I'm aware of the firmware issues with the drives, for both D-Link and Seagate, but I don't think I can update either of them until the drives are initially formatted.
Any suggestions, short of returning everything ASAP?
Thanks for your help!
