    Default Wont Recognize drives

    I just replaced the drives in this unit with larger ones that came out of a win 7 pc.
    The unit will not see the drives.
    Placed them back into the pc and was able to see them. I deleted the existing partitions.
    Placed it back into the NAS and they are still not seen.
    Put a new drive in and it was seen.

    Can't I use a used drive?
    Need I do something special first?

    You mention that these are "used" drives? It could be that the MBR contains a entry that the NAS does not recognise. Try wiping clean the MBR. a simple format or fdisk will not do that. If I remember correctly [fdisk /MBR] should do the trick -
