I have a ST31500341AS 1.5Tb hard drive that is one of six identical drives I have in my ReadyNAS Pro. When I install this in the ReadyNAS Pro (in slot 6) it eventually comes up as a " Drive Fail" error.
If I remove it from the NAS, reformat it to NTFS and install it in my PC it works 100% as it should, I can read and write to it.
I have borrowed another HD to install in the NAS, in the same slot 6, and that also works 100% as it should. So it appears its not a NAS problem.
Does anybody have any suggestions on how I can get this particular Hard Drive to work in my NAS
All six drives are ST31500341AS with CC1H firmware, purchased at different times over a period of six months. The problematic drive was purchased May 2009
The NAS firmware is the very latest and the ST31500341AS is on the list of compatible drives for the ReadyNAS Pro

Thanks for the reply but after I have reformatted the failed drive in the PC, I have reinstalled it in the NAS and it still comes up failed disk.
If I go to the ReadyNAS "frontview" software I can read all the smart information off the "failed" driv, and its showing no reallocated sectors.

Yes it is a proprietary RAID. Its called XRAID2
The NAS formats the drive, so need to do that.
I have tried cutting & pasting the smart report but for some reason it thinks its over 20,000 characters and wont let me do it
