If the HDD is formatted as Standard Configuration, then the HDD "may" mount successfully, but no guarantee.  If you haven't already done so, make sure you make a backup of your data prior to any data migration activities such as this one.

D-Link made improvements to the HDD  filesystem when they moved from the DNS-XXX to DNS-XXXL (Cloud Enabled) models. Unfortunately, the changes resulted in the loss of backwards compatibility.
