Question about Samsung SSC DVR Digital Video Recorder with 80 Gb Removable Hard Drive
I have a Samsung SSCDVR. I purchased a new Hard drive. In reading some past posts I figured I would have to format the hardrive, I formatted it and still have the same problem. It says it is booting and then says NO HDD. I have changed the jumpers to all three settings. (Master, Slave, Cable select) The green light, lights up and the amber light flashes once when I turn the unit on. I all so here the hard drive start to spin. Does this unit need some kind of software installed on the hard drive or is that built in to the unit.
Your reformatting the hard drive removed everything
it is now not booting from the hard drive because there is no operating system to boot from
you will have to put the os disc into an external cd drive , change the boot priority from hard drive to cd and get the os onto the hard drive

I have set up a dozen or so if these units.... so it's fairly simple (if you understand the terminology) - By the way, I just got off the phone with Samsung tech support to confirm. John at GVI /Samsung says the drive cannot exced 160 Gig or it will not recognize it period. Secondly, the drive cannot have any format or partition whatsoever. So use a partition tool and delete the partition and the DVR will initialize it and format the drive to suit it's operating system.
I have had luck repartitioning the drives in a basic FAT 32 and making sure I did NOT set the partition as active..and the DVR configured the drive properly. Good Luck!
