I feel your pain. Though issues with drives on the HCL are fortunately rare.MD0MDI wrote:The problem is which one??? I have already tried one from the list which i have then been told is not compatible, and i have now lost out on £28 return postage to send the drives back, so which ones that are on the list will work, or is this list just going to be full of drives that are not compatible???
No one seems to give me a correct answer, and even telephoning Netgear here is the UK has proved to be useless, I am really seeing the level of customer support that Netgear offer!, i.e. NONE!
From Netgear's point of view, they have certified all the drives on the HCL (with the unfortunate misstep with the drives you bought). All they can suggest is that you pick another drive on the HCL - what else do you expect them to tell you?MD0MDI wrote:I have already looked and the drives in question are at least double the cost of the Seagate drives, it took me months to save to afford those it could be upto 6 months before I can afford a set of hitachi drives. I think due to the ack of help from Netgear on the phone here in the uk I am thinking of putting the enclosure on eBay and giving up on he whole idea!

They seem to be removed from the Pro-6 list also. Given that Netgear denies support for drives not on the list, it seems to me that it is a huge problem for folks when Netgear takes them off later.rollercoaster wrote:I have recently purchased a NV+ v2 and looking to fill it with 3TB drives.
If I am not mistaken early this week there were 2x Western Digital 3TB drives listed in the Compatibility list but now they dont appear ?
Can someone confirm ?
