Use of the DX8000 and DX8100 series DVR HDD's interchangeably.

Issue

  • Can I take the HDD out of a non-working DX8000 and place it in a working DX8100 and get the video from the older DX8000 working again?
  • Can I use the hard driver out of a DX8000 in a DX8100 and get the video working?
  • Does the DX8000 support SATA drives?

Environment

  • DX8000 - Any version
  • DX8100 - Any version

Cause

No available reference for the swapping of hard drives between the DX8000 units and the DX8100 units.

Resolution

Due to the fact that the DX8000 hard drives are IDE based hard drives and the DX8100 hard drives are SATA based drives, the two systems cannot utilize the opposing model DVR's hard drives.
