Newbie storage ? Quad

I bought a 4 tuner quad. Wondering if this drive is compatible? I’m scared to open anything until I’m sure. Thank you very much in advance!!!
MDD (MDD8TSATA12872DVR) 8TB 128MB Cache 7200RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive designed for heavy duty 24/7 operation. It is perfect for Surveillance System, CCTV DVR & Desktop computers (PC/MAC).

You should be very afraid :wink: - all the references specifically tell you, internally, it has to be a 2.5" -
Compatible Recording Storage Options - a desktop 3.5" drive will not fit inside a Tablo Quad.

Thank you! And thanks fir the humor!

If you’re using an external enclosure, make sure it’s got it’s own power supply.

It does. It’s a Godo usb 3.0 to sata III max cap. 3.5" up to 12tb.
Box says there’s a on off button on the box with a dc hook up.
I’m unsure if the hdd n external enclosure are compatible with the 4 tuner quad (no internal on board memory)
