I have an WD 1TB expander box from a Pace digital box. Can I move it to my Motorola DCT4316 PVR? How can I format it?
When you plug the expander in to the Motorola PVR - is the PVR already turned on at that point?
You should connect the expander with the DCT3416 powered on and tuned to a channel.
When you connect the expander to your Motorola PVR it should prompt you to format the drive.
It will give you a Yes/No option, if you choose Yes - the PVR will erase all contents on the drive and format it, then an on-screen message will notify you the drive is ready for use.
I am getting no prompt. When I look in the PVR - settings, the expander is not recognized. Is my expander kaput! The light on the from is yellow.
The light on the front is yellow.
Yes, that seems to have worked. The PVR says the drive is formatted now. Thank you!
