I am hoping someone can assist me please. I bought a s7010 pvr that did not recognize the 1.5 TB WD elements external HDD. I then contacted dishTV who told me that it was not supported due to its capacity but if I purchased the 1TB version it would work.
I returned the old drive and got the smaller one, swapped from NTFS to exFAT (as instructed in the manual) using the windows 7 quick format option. The drive still shows 'not ready' or 'not recognized' and I have not had further reply from the help desk yet. I also copied the two autorun items (one hidden folder, one hidden file) back to the reformatted drive in case they were needed (and were accidentally erased when I formatted the drive)
I have also gone to the WD website and downloaded a special file for 'using older format fat' but it will not run on my windows 7 machine.
The PVR manual merely said to insert the HDD into the USB and it would work.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as this whole freeview thing has become quite costly in terms of time and purchasing parts that are incompatible.
