Hi Jack,

The error means that the harddrive is at fault. You can try to reset the unit first unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet and wait for 1 minute. Plug the power back in. Allow the system 5-10 minutes to re-initialize before using. Check the issue again.

You may reply to me by entering your message in the box at the top then hit the send response button to send.
