Adding a new A/V drive
on Sep 17, 2007 at 7:55:20 pm

I am demoing a 6tb a/v drive from Isilon.

I wanted to know if anyone has hooked up another drive like this on their 844x to capture audio and video.

If so, how do you go about making 844 detect the drives?

TIA

Hi Sam,

No experience with these drives, I'm afraid (though they look fantastic). How is the drive appearing in Windows? Is it a mapped network drive, for example?

My guess is that unless it appears as a volume in Disk Management then 844/X isn't going to be able to connect. But again, that's *not* experience talking. Have the Isilon support people been able to help?

Cheers,
Ben

It does appear in Windows as a drive but it does not appear in 844x as a volume in Disk Management.

I did not contact Isilon yet - I thought it would be an 844x problem.

Any other thoughts on maybe configuring the 844x?

TIA

Sam

As far as I know one way the 844/X decides if a drive is fast enough for video capture is that it only looks for drives connected to a storage card (e.g. SCSI) that is placed in a special slot on your CPUs PCI bus. Are the drives connected to the same card as your other storage? Or did you add another storage connection card, like a SATA card? If yes, try placing this card in the slot where your SCSI card is now.
And make sure that your drives are formatted correctly.
