NOTE:
Preparing a USB-IDE hard disk drive under Windows XP is almost identical to Windows 2000.
1.
Connect the USB-IDE hard disk drive to your computer using the USB Cable.
2.
Turn on your computer.
3.
The USB device icon should display on the Taskbar.
4.
If the USB-IDE hard disk drive is partitioned or has data, it will show up in My
Computer as a hard disk drive icon. Check the file system by right clicking on
the icon and checking under Properties > General > File System. If the file
system is NOT FAT32 format, format the USB-IDE hard disk drive using the
FAT32 format.
5.
If the USB-IDE hard disk drive is not partitioned, go to Administrative Tools in
Control Panel and launch Computer Management. Open Disk Management
in Storage and right click an unallocated region of the USB-IDE hard disk
drive. Then, click Create Partition.
6.
In the Create Partition wizard, click Next then Primary Partition, and follow the
instructions on the screen. Make sure that the FAT32 is selected for the file
system.
NOTE:
The partition size should be less than 32 GB because of Microsoft limitations.
After formatting is complete, the USB-IDE hard disk drive will be added to My
Computer.
7.
Connect the USB-IDE hard disk drive to the DVR.
