I have a Synology DS411j and unfortunately one of my 1TB disks failed and needs to be replaced. The replacement process will take sometime and what I would like to do is to use a 1TB disk from a WD Mybook World Edition storage that it is not used anymore.
I took the disks out and when I installed one of them in my Synology, it could not be seen by the system. I took the disk out and I then used the second one with exactly the same results.
What I did after that was to try my luck by installing the disks in a PC with Windows XP, then to a PC with Windows 7, then in a docking station connected to both Windows XP/7 and MAC OSX 10.6 and then as a last resort I used Hiren boot CD and many of the utilities but again it was not possible to recognise the disks.
I finally reinstalled the disks to the WD enclosure which recognised them with no trouble at all!
I do not know what else to do, I googled it but I could not find anything and your help at this point would be much appreciated.
Thank you very much in advance.
