I'm from Miramichi city, a place in Canada, created in the 90's by joining the small towns together along a famous salmon river known as the Miramichi. I don't know if it will ever really be a City. I'll always be a hiller from Chatham and Newcastle will always be Newcastle. Anyway that's me, now here's my problem if anyone can help because it's driving me nutz. I'm used to taking hard drives out of pvr/dvr boxes and using them for storage, but I have 3 drives, each 1TB, that will only spin up when their in their pvr box. It took me a week to figure out how to format them and trust me it's not just disk management. That's how I do all the rest. But even though I now have them formatted but still, if I turn them off they will not power back up unless I plug them back into their pvr boxes. Everytime I do that I then need to reformat them and I lose all the data I just saved on them. Saying I'm stuck is an understatement. Any help?
