4th gen tablo.
I’m trying to use an external drive, attached to the USB port on the back.
I’ve tried two different USB drives and in both cases, the Tablo forgets the external drive is there after a while. That is, if I go to settings/storage - it shows only the internal storage space, not the external drive.
I suspect that the Tablo is not telling the drive to stay awake. If I unplug the drive, and plug it back in - the Tablo sees it again.
Has anyone had any luck with external drives on the 4th gen Tablo?
No - either SSD or spinning disk hard-drives will work.
Although they do say-“Internal (laptop style) hard drives placed in external enclosures can cause frequent USB disconnects and communication issues between the drive and the DVR.” Which is my situation.
But, a 2.5inch ssd in an external enclosure does work just fine.
And, my legacy quad, has a 2.5inch SSD drive mounted internally which works just fine.
