Cause

Upgrade hard drive to increase storage capacity.

Resolution

If the unit in question is currently less than 4TB in total size then it is possible to upgrade the storage. The DVR5100 series has two (2) internal Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) connections for storage drive use. Each connection has been tested to support 2TB for a total possible storage amount of 4TB.   Please note that DVR5100’s shipped prior to July 2007 require a bios update in order to support hard drives larger than 500GB (see LL#17480).


The following models are available for DVR5100 Series hard disk drive replacements or upgrades:

Part Number Description
DVR5KRP-250 One 250 GB hard disk drive
DVR5KRP-500 One 500 GB hard disk drive
