In the issue, you had selected the format type that cannot be recognized by the computer when the hard drive was connected to the LinkStation.
If you had formatted the hard drives by the following format type, the issue will happen.

  • EXT3 (you can read the data by using EXT3 reader.)
  • XFS
  • HFS+ (it can be recognized on Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.)


You should change the different format type.
