are these drive compatible?
« on: September 22, 2011, 10:08:28 pm »

I have 2 x 2TB Samsung HD204UI  2TB/R54/32M dirves.   Are they compatible to my Linkstation LS-WX2.0TL/R1

 

I put them in and did the TFPT boot and got it up and running,  created RAID1 for redundancy.... then it said there was a firmware update, so I took it and it never rebooted.  Now is just has red light flashing 6 times.....  it happened the 1st time trying to create the RAID 1.   Just want to know if this is the drives or the unit..... it is brand new.   I just can't have all my valuable data on it and it blows up like that.  Please advise.   If I need to get the right drives let me know,  though they did work.  thanks and Help

Well I see my drives under the TeraStation Pro.....  Mine is the Linkstation Duo.   Is that the model first on this list? LS-WXL/E

Jotin,  I see the Samsung HD203UI on the WXL list but mine are HD204UI.  Will the 204's work?   I have 2 of them and would like to use them instead of the 1TB drives.  Thanks.
