   Just purchased this and installed it at home (Firmware 1.05).  I have a PC with Windows XP MediaCenter SP 3, Pentium D CPU 2.8GHz, 3GB RAM.  Install went very smooth but when I click on the properties for this new network drive it says that it is 2.7 TB    (2,975,895,126,016 bytes capacity).  I saw some other posts about this problem with 4TB Quattro DriveStation and that I need Vista, is this true?

Windows will not always read this drive correctly, though since it is a 4x1TB unit running RAID 5 (you lose the capacity of 1 drive) this 2.7TB is about right!
