I bought new hard drives for our 3play 4800.
when we tried to record, we got this error: Warning: heavy disk usage causing dropped frames in recording. These are brand new drives and haven't been used.
They are formatted NTFS, 2TB 7200 RPM (they exceed the minimum suggestions in the 3play manual --(All else being equal, larger drives are normally faster – try to use 1TB drives or above. Use SATA 3.0GB/s drives with rotational speed of 7200 R.P.M. (or better). Drives should have a larger onboard cache (32Mb or better is recommended).)
They are enterprise class drives. Could that be the issue?
