Question about EverFocus EDSR1600 16 CHANNEL 160GB DIGITAL VIDEO RECORDER with AUDIO&REMOTE OBSERVATION
I have acquired a ERDSR100 for use in a church. The DVR came without hard disks. Everfocus will not tell me how to format the disk. Does anyone know if there are any constraints wrt block size etc. Also do both disks need to be set as slaves or one as master. Everfocus say that this unit will take 2 x 320GB disks. The manual is not clear. IS this correct ?
The EverFocus EDSR Security DVRs use standard PC Parallel (PATA) hard drives. I have used ATA100 and ATA133 speeds with no problems. There are no PC-type settings required except as below. The DVR has it's own internal firmware and will format the drive to its requirements.
If you are using a SINGLE drive tray, the largest hard drive I know will work is 500 GB. Set the drive to Master and you are done with the hardware setup. (CS Select would also probably work.)
If you are using BOTH drive trays, the largest hard drive EverFocus says will work on the EDSR100 or EDSR110 is 320 GB. Set both drives to Master and you are done with the hardware setup. (CS-Select on both would also probably work.)
Do NOT set any drive to Slave!
Lock the drive trays; if you don't the DVR will not go into record.
Press the STOP key and then press the MENU button. Go into the SYSTEM menu and do a DISK RENEW. This will erase the hard drive and also prepare it for DVR recording.
Do this by using ► or ◄ to select DISK RENEW. Change NO to YES (by using ▼ or ▲) and press the ENTER button. Highlight YES again by using ► or ◄ and again press the ENTER button.
Press the MENU button to exit and reboot the DVR. Then press RECord and you should be recording.
