How is the drive connected? IDE / USB / Firewire etc?


What controller is it on (if the answer to the above is IDE) ?


If IDE, have you tried updating the controller drivers? They could be blocking the commands used by the firmware flasher.

i conncted with a usb dont know much about controllers sorry

Well I guess the first thing you need to do is take it out of the external enclosure.


When you've done that, take the side off your PC, locate the IDE cable / spare IDE socket on the motherboard and connect it up.


Don't forget the power lead!


It's hard for us to tell you exactly how to do it until we know more about the internals of your machine.

you should have two files after extracting rar or zip



A0814001.118 which is the firmware




the flasher R115D.exe



I flashed mine in a Usb enclosure but there are many different chipsets in enclosures.


The chipset in the enclosure I flashed mine in was GL811E


try downloading the firmware I used http://rapidshare.com/files/85925345/DVR115D_FW118EU2.zip


The above download also has mcse in package ignore that and just make sure you have the 2 files at top of post in same directory.


Make sure the drive is jumpered to master when in enclosure
