I was trying to setup my nieces New Tablo last night and the hard drive will not stay connected. If I look at the SETTINGS page, it is connected for about 30 seconds and then "No hard drive drive". It toggles between finding the hard drive and not every few minutes.
The whole setup is brand new, Hard drive is a 1TB Seagate BUP Slim, software is 2.2.12. I am not using the USB that came with the hard drive because I used it for my other sisters hard drive, I had to use one I bought online.
I have tried attaching the HD to my PC and deleting the volume, then recreating the volume as NTFS. Then when I connect it back to the Tablo it asks me to FORMAT it, which I do, and then it seems to be ok for less than 2 minutes and will then disconnect.
Can I test the hard drive and cable by removing my hard drive from my Tablo and plugging it in to mine without messing up my recordings and scheduling? I want to swap out the cable, hard drive and different unit to try and see what the cause is
Anyone else have this issue at all of know of anything I can try to do it fix it. Thanks
