Unfortunately the CCTV software is in excess of 1GB, by the time you include the DLL’s etc, I’m not supposed to be able to get at the underlying windows environment, as the whole unit is sold as a factory built unit.(Intellex)
I’d be reluctant to try and bodge/hack the server software in case it causes the unit to stop recording 16 camera’s worth of footage to the internal hard disks.
I can put a maintenance call in, but unfortunately they would swap the whole server, I would receive someone else’s server.
Unfortuantely they won’t just change the combo drive. I won’t get back our original server and the one I receive may come from a site which was in a poor environment or has not been quite so well cared for.
Hence the preference to replace the drive with one that it already recognises.
The omnipatcher claimed to be able to change the ID, however as already stated by someone else it only supports drives several years old which were 16speed or less.
If it’s not possible to change the ID reported by a currently available drive, then I shall have to attempt something else.
I suspect ADT will charge me an arm and a leg for a replacement drive with the correct ID in it as a once off purchase , going off their other prices for parts.
Thanks for getting back to me.
