    We have not used one for years. If I remember correctly, only drives with Avid firmware will work.  You can't replace it with an off the shelf drive. Basically, you have no option other than buying a new chassis from other manufacturers.

    Many thanks for your reply .. I highly apprecite it.

     

    But, I realy need confirmation from Avid that I can not use off the shelf drives!  It would be realy so stupid if Avid did limited the storage for only thier own HDD!

    We had no problem with standard SATA drives in our VideoRAID SR. Except of course that there is a 2 TB limit per drive. We tested with WD RED 4 TB drives. They were seen as 2 TB drives, but otherwise worked fine.
