    Adding Drives to 3U

    @J.Green Thank you sir!! The problem was it was not even seating right into the bay so it was not registering. Took me a while of pushing it in and out and messing with the locking cam but it finally took and now I am up to 30TB! All Blue lights!! Thanks also to all who gave help. This really...

    Adding Drives to 3U

    NO message at all, but definitely 1TB less than I had PRIOR to replacing the 1TB with a 6TB. I get that I may not truly gain 5tb, but surely shouldn't have lost 1 tb by adding 5 additional! Actually, the newest drive does not have any lights. And I noticed that the drive doesn't seem to sit...

    Adding Drives to 3U

    To update on the progress. I had a 3U with 2 empty slots. The seller sent all 4 6TB drives to K to be reinitialized (or whatever they call it). Received the 4 drives, placed 2 in the blank slots and they were immediately recognized. I then removed ONE 1tb drive and replaced it with a 6tb...

    Adding Drives to 3U

    Thanks Mark! So, if I understand (which I highly doubt), as I pull each drive out to check the size, will it then start trying to rebuild each one? With 2 open slots, my intention was to add 2 of the 6TB first and let the hot spare get moved to one of the 6TB. But I still need to figure out...

    Adding Drives to 3U

    Good morning everyone! I am in the process of acquiring 4 new drives (6TB) for my 3U server. I currently only have 2 empty slots, so I will be replacing 2 of the current drives. I currently have a mix of different sized drives in there and really don't have any idea which are which. I am...

    SOLD: KSERVER-5000, M-500 Player and Co-Star Switch

    I guess I meant how much storage does the one you are selling have? You listed the movies but I did not see the capacity of the server you are selling. The picture finally just came up as I was typing this. Thanks!! I am not sure if I can fit another 3u in my rack. Let me check

    Added M300 doesn't list my library

    Ah, it was parental controls. There was a small checkbox in my settings to hide content. But it all showed on my M500 so I thought that wasn't it. Clicked that and restarted my M300 and it all shows up. Thanks as always!!

    Added M300 doesn't list my library

    Sorry but I haven't found this question in searching several pages so far. I just added an M300 to my system and it registers on my server under the components page. On the M300 screen under system summary, it lists my servers and all of the specific info of my server. But on the M300 Movies...

    Server Rack Cabinets

    Thanks Vodder!! I was looking at one somewhat like that for about $1200, still a massive savings compared to that one above. Appreciate your input as always!

    Server Rack Cabinets

    I have found a few posts regarding server cabinets but they were several years old. Wondering if anyone is using a server rack cabinet in their living room/media room. I have a storage room near my theater equipment but it can get somewhat dusty. Was thinking of keeping my equipment in an...

    New to Kscape and lots of questions

    Good morning all!! I am new to the kscape community, though I have been creeping for a number of years. I have just purchased a few used pieces that includes a 1u server, m700 vault and an M500 player. Have a chance to get a 3u and maybe a dv700 as well. I have a ton of old dvd's and a hundred...
