  1. Silver River III 5G + 5TB WD Red not working properly

    HDD is ok, tested via another enclosure. BTW, problem solved, just needed to convert MBR->GPT. Now everything works fine.
  2. Hello. Recently I have purchased a 5TB WD Red HDD and a Silver River III 5G enclosure for it. Unfortunately they seem not to work properly with each other. I tried several usecases: Attach the enclosure with drive to a win 7 x64 system - win 7 wasn't able to discover the drive from computer management app (Win+R->control admintools->computer management) Reboot to a Ubuntu 14.04 x64 system - situation is better, gparted sees the disk and i was able to make two(4TB + 1TB) ntfs partitions on it. Again reboot to win 7 x64 (the drive was partitioned from gparted under ubuntu) - still no luck, the system can't see the drive. Connect the enclosure with the drive to ASUS RT-AC68U router (that is my aim - i want to make a home storage drive, controlled from the router) - not working. BTW, I tried to use the enclosure with my old WD Green 500GB HDD - works like a charm. My question: is there a way for Silver River III 5G to work with 5TB WD Red HDD? Thanks in advance.
