Advertisements I have a Roamio that's quite a few years old. Some weeks back I noticed it getting a bit louder so I ordered a replacement drive, a 3TB WD Red WD30EFRX. Over the weekend, we noticed it was hung on Starting up (we didn't power cycle it) so I figured the drive was dead. I tried using MFStools, etc. but the original drive showed no partitions. I plugged the WD Red into the case and powered it on, but it didn't go to starting up. For kicks, I plugged in a SSD drive and got the Starting up and it went to into restore mode. I tried the Red again and it's not working.... I've got the Roamio with external adapter and 500gb HD, wondering if the external doesn't have enough power to spin up the 3tb?
