Question about Iomega NAS 200d 160 GB Hard Drive Array

2 Answers

Hi,I would like to upgrade my NAS 200d (now 4 years in use). can I: - replace the 160GB disks by larger ones? - replace the 256MB memory by 2x 512MB or 2x 1GB? - upgrade BIOS? - update Trust antivirus> - update Windows Server 2003? - install XP Pro instead of Server 2003? The NAS is sometimes bogged down CPU 100%, I don't know why. Hopefully upgrading/updating would fix this as well. What motherboard is used in the 200d? Aida32 does not find info. Thanks very much, Art

    Iomega's website gives little useful information on upgrading and updating. Does anyone else at FixYa's have technical knowledge of the NAS 200D or should I contact Iomega support as suggested?

Yes, you can replace the hd's with whatever brand and size you want.
Yes, you can upgrade the RAM to 2x 1 GB.
Yes, you can update the BIOS but you should do it only if you really need that - upgraded components aren't recognized.
Always keep Windows updated. 
Yes, you could use XP Pro instead of Server but running a data server on an XP install is going to be much more error prone. You have a well oiled server soft, keep it. Why fix something that isn't broken ?

The only way to get 100% reliable information on what u can and can't upgrade u need to contact the customer support for this product, there are no listings I can find to upgrade this unit, u will need the part numbers of any parts that can be upgraded, but based on my experience with this you are far better off to just replace the drive, if you are getting an error message about no data found then there is a fault in the drive, it will most likely fail completely in the future, suggest you back it up now before that happens.

Adding computer memory


The only thing you could do is put in a 256MB module in the slot that you have access to. Only one socket is user upgradable. The second socket is only upgradable by a Dell service center. They would have to install a second 256 module to get you to the 512MB max.

Hi there.
Yes you can upgrade the memory to 2 x 512MB DDR SDRAM memory.

HP ze5470us memory upgrade not fully recognized


Hi there,

I am almost sure that you, by accident of course, switched the memory blocs, so that you have put in one 256MB and one 512MB.

Have a look at the once you have on the table.

Hard disk and ram


Hello Kevin Shaggy...

Let me see if I can help you out a bit...
Adding a 160gb to a 40gb does give you 200gb. BUT!!! you will loose a little bit on each one after formatting the harddrive. The new drive will wind up being about 157 or 159gb give or take a little.
ANY harddrive partition, whether it is a c:, d:, etc...you DO have to format EACH drive letter.
If you partition your 160gb harddrive into 2 parts, (2) 80gb drives, then they would get two drive letters and both of them get formatted.
IF the 40gb drive is C: then the new 160gb partitioned in half would be D: & E:.
CDROM Drive would be F: and so on....
Floppy Drives, CDrom Drives, DVD Drives, you do not have to format like a hard drive...

If you add a 1gb stick of memory to your existing 256mb stick of memory then you WOULD have 1gb + 256mb. If you remove the 256mb and just add 1gb, then you would just have 1gb.

Need to know what type of RAM my MD 1921 has so I can upgrade.


Hi KF27,

Your system has and supports PC SODIMM DDR RAM with a MAX support of 1GB. You currently have 512MB of RAM (2x 256MB), so your only option is 2x 512MB of RAM..

I hope this helps you out!

Installing Memory


Hi

Yes, you can replace/upgrate the memory module under the keyboard.

Before you proceed, note that Dell Inspiron 2650 uses DDR200 3.3V SODIMM modules. Also, memory module capacities supported are 128MB and 256MB with a Maximum memory of 512MB. If the current memory installed is 128MB, you need to order 2x 256MB modules to replace/upgrade both memory slots. If the installed capacity is 256MB, you just need another 256MB for the slot underneath the laptop.

Check "Removing the Keyboard" for guide removing the keyboard to access the 2nd memory slot.

Read "Preparing to Work Inside the Computer" before committing to the above procedure.

Let me know how you get on.
