Thumbs down Nothing is ever easy...

So....that didn't work at all.

My 630 freezes/crashes soon after restarting it. The little pulsing orange light that moves back and forth during reboots gets stuck on the middle position and stays there, indefinitely. Nothing short of turning off the HDD and unplugging the 630 will get the signal back.

I'm using a Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB in an Vantec Nexstar 3 enclosure, but the 630 doesn't seem to like one (or both) of these.

Haven't called tech support yet; I guess that's tomorrow's order of business.

PS. I don't have VOD enabled (no ports left on my router). Someone had mentioned the lack of VOD could cause issues.
