Question about Home Security
I sent the DVR back to the supplier and this was replaced and I got the same problem, I sent the Seagate 300GB HDD back and this was exchanged for another HDD a 300GB Western Digital. The problem still remains with both the DVR and HDD being replaced, I use the system but cannot record can you advise what can be done to rectify the problem
Guys this one stumped me for some time, here is my solution that worked like a dream
1. plug the hard drive you are using into a pc and check the hard drive is recognise and works.
2. Delete all partitions
3. ensure it has a 8 bit cache buffer!! This is the most important one. That means the system only supports older hard drives. I got 2 second hand ones from the local pc store for $50. See the list of hard drives that are know to work below.

FYI for some reason the person I bought this off online "Ebay" had no idea how to support and I could not get support from their web site as they email they give just bounces back.

You may be lucky because the battery acid may not have gone beyond the contacts in the battery chamber: open battery chamber and clean out especially at the bottom of the chamber and blow out any loose stuff when you finished cleaning ( use pencil erazor or something similar , but do not use sand paper or anything that will damage chrome plating of the contacts ; you do not want corrosion at later stage ).
