Adding Hard Drives to an OpenEye Recorder
OpenEye Linux systems do not have the ability to hot swap drives, be sure to power off and unplug the recorder before installing hard drives.
Ensure the hard drive is compatible with our system. Refer to our technical support team for further questions and information.
For 3rd party hard drives that have not been formatted by OpenEye, the recorder will need to be put through a full factory default once the hard drive is installed. This will format the drive and allow for footage to be written.
Hard Drives Received From OpenEye
- Turn off and unplug the recorder.
- Physically install the hard drive. Be sure the power and SATA cables are seated correctly, and the hard drive is secured.
- Turn the recorder on.
- Make your way to system settings, and storage tab. Be sure to enable your drive.
3rd Party Hard Drives
We recommend using the same model drive as what is being replaced. Other drives may be supported but are not recommended.
