Greetings from NYC, After many years of faithful service, the hard drive on my unit is starting to go. I’m not quite ready to get rid of the unit just yet, so I went ahead purchased the recommended hard drive to replace the original one. I updated the latest firmware on the unit as recommended and at this point the unit is not connected to my lap top. The problem begins when I’m trying to format the new hard drive.
I successfully follow the steps into UTILITY MODE, the PARAMETERS knob allows me to scroll to INITIALIZATION MODE, but when I press the knob to go into FORMAT MODE nothing happens and cannot get past this point.
