I have a unitiserve 2GB device. Forums often talk about a hard drive that has stopped working due to age… I plan to make a copy of the hard drive before it runs out. A few questions about this:
- Unitiserve supports a maximum of 2GB disk?
- Is it true that the SSD disk does not last long in the unitiserve device (as I understand somehow related to the old windows and
with the hard disk communication method)?!?
- I myself have thought of Seagate Ironwolf 2GB as a new drive (or maybe even Seagate Ironwolf Pro 2GB?!?)?
- Does this hard disk limit of 2GB mean that the disk format should be FAT32?
Many thanks in advance!!!
Surely a question for Naim Support - @Richard.Dane - ??
Yes, probably a question best addressed by Naim support.
The HDD in the Unitiserve contains the entire OS, database etc as well as just music files, so you cannot simply slot in a replacement. Ideally it’s a job for a Naim service agent - as far as I’m aware nobody has been able to DIY this.
Yes, unlike the Uniti Core, the OS on the earlier HDD models is stored on the HDD so a simple backup drive isn’t an option.
Naim used Seagate “pipeline” drives in the older HDX/NS/Uniti models, I’m guessing there was a reason for this(?)
MCZ 10v1500uF has gone bad… the device is still working. The question is, should we stop using the device until this capacitor is replaced?!?
Again, something I think only Naim’s service dept via Naim support can answer.
