I am anxiously awaiting delivery of the new 4 channel Tablo. Previously I tried (and returned) the first version of Simple.tv and I want to use the Seagate Expansion Portable Drive that I used with Simple.tv. I think the file storage system used by Simple.tv is called JFS. Does anybody know if my new Tablo will reformat the drive as necessary? I ask this because I can’t reformat it by plugging it into my Windows 8 computer - appears that a third party program will be necessary. I want the drive to be ready when the new Tablo arrives.
Tablo will format the drive as soon as you plug it in.
I ordered Western Digital Elements 2TB unit. I believe Tablo recommends it. It has a plug-in power supply low voltage transformer to 120 VAC
