    R2750 HDD various problems (not formatting, not recording, not detecting, etc.)

    Hi,

    after 5 years of great work my R2750 begun to working badly.

    It started corrupting recording files tagged as "not readable", so I begun to formatting the HDD many times.
    Sometimes it got minutes, sometimes hours. I restarted it many times.
    Sometimes the formatting said "OK", but I was able to see old files on it. Some other was really formatted.

    The list can continue, but now, because I suspect the SATA interface is gone, I simply would like to know if I can connect an external hdd to the usb. In this case all the recording function will be preserved? Also the programmable recordings?
    Hello,

    do you have tested the HDD on a PC? You should connect the R2750 by USB to a PC to delete all Files and of course all partitions (very important) on the internal HDD.
    After that please format the HDD with the R2750's formatting Option and test it.

    Also you should test another internal HDD.

    regards
