Thread: DM800: unable to initialize the harddrive


Forum: Dreambox Receiver Discussion

Hi there, Just installed a new 250gb hdd into DM800, and tried to initialize it, but get the following error: Unable to initialize harddisk . Mount Failed. and also, Unable to initialize harddisk . Mkfs Failed. I've tried a couple of different images, and it seems to work ok as i can access a few files that have already been written to it. Any ideas what the problem might be?

    and also,
    Unable to initialize harddisk . Mkfs Failed.

    I've tried a couple of different images, and it seems to work ok as i can access a few files that have already been written to it.

    Re: DM800: unable to initialize the harddrive

    Sorted it.
    Loaded latest Oozoon image into flash, seemed to remember i unplugged the USB drive as well, and then the hdd initialised ok.

    Had to remove Oozoon from flash though, as my LT5 image kept crashing in multiboot. The Oozoon CVS was obviously not compatible with LT5 .
