I have a new Powerbay  4 bay NAS with one 2TB drive installed. I can't figure out how to get it to show as a drive on my home network. I have been through the manual and not quite sure where I am going wrong. I think it is getting hung up on the drive configuration page in the web configuration. When I hit create in the disk configyration: RAID setting screen I get an error message no matter which configuration I choose. Here is a screen shot.


I am using a Windows & laptop. The NAS is hardwired to a Verizon Router. I can see the drive when I log into the Router configuration page.

Duplicate topic closed. Other topic is here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/615888/attempting-to-set-up-an-nas-totally-baffled/

Please do not start multiple topics about the same issue. This creates confusion for you, those helping you and can delay the help process.

All discussion will take place in your other topic, which hamluis moved to Networking.
