Bosch Divar sata HDD upgrade help

Recommended Posts

I have an older Bosch divar that has a 250 gig drive in it and I tried upgraded to a 1 TB drive. The problem is it wants an ide drive and tried a sata drive with a roswill sata to ide adapter. It sees the drive in the menu but it only records to it for about 15 min before I get a disk failure. Even after the failure the HDD still is shown in the menu its there but it just stops writing to it unless I reboot it and it will record again for 15 min or so.


I really love this dvr but just want more storage for it. Maybe someone here has used other adapters with good luck. I am willing to try another brand

check in the spec sheet what's the maximum supported HDD size. if can't figure it out call Bosch they have super good support. and don't try IDE/SATA adapters, these will work on PC but rarly on DVRs. get a native IDE drive its <$100 for 1TB
