Would a 2.5" disk work too?

Post by erjee » Wed Jun 13, 2012 9:09 pm

I have some 2.5" SATA harddisks not being used anymore. Since I currently only have 1 disk in my MD-254, I was wondering if I could use one of those smaller HD's inside my NAS to expand storage.

I tried to fit one disk inside, but the admin pages keep saying there's no disk in the 2nd bay. It seems to only recognise the 3.5" disk that was already in there.

Tried another disk, which seems to work fine.
Would it matter if a disk is just plain SATA instead of SATA-II or SATA-III ?
