Pg 22 - FORMATTING THE 8300HD EXTERNAL DRIVE
eSATA 77/13/06 - I’ll note up front that my 8300HD is running PASSPORT version 2.5.052 with BETA SATA support. I have never used SARA, so I have no idea if there are any similarities.  Having said that, here’s the first relevant screen.
eSATA 87/13/06 - Here’s the screen describing the internal drive . . .
eSATA 97/13/06 - and the AVFS stats on total capacity, used space and free space. At this point, I powered down the 8300HD, rebooted it, powered up the external drive and hot-plugged them together.
eSATA 107/13/06 - Upon connecting the already running external drive, the 8300HD detected it and displayed this screen.  I selected “Format Now.”
eSATA 117/13/06 - Seconds later, this screen appeared.
eSATA 127/13/06 - I entered DIAG and found the SATA page now had this log.
eSATA 137/13/06 - The first picture I took at the time of formatting - several weeks ago - showed much more free space, but was so blurry it could not be used. I took this shot a day ago. Notice the “AV Size” and “AV Capacity.” Wooo hooo!

As I noted on the previous page, the external drive on this 8300HD is a Maxtor Quickview with 250GB capacity. I attached a 500GB Maxtor Quickview 500 to my other 8300HD.
