I plugged into M20D a USB hard disk with external power and  stagescape does not find it .

USB stick or SD card - no problem.

 

Are there special harddisk that can only be used with M20D?

I have not tried, but the manual mentions using a USB harddrive. Maybe try reformatting? Or make sure you can see it when plugged into the computer? Probably tried these things.

The drive must be formatted FAT32

I tried to use a USB 3.0 HD that I bought at Cosco.  The light came on the HD but it wouldn't work.  I read this post and learned that the HD was in NTFS format.  I followed the above post and was able to reformat the HD to FAT32.  My one question is does the HD need to have external power or will it work off of the MD20?

 

Thank you,

not a fix to your issue but more of a recommendation..regardless of the size of the drive you are limited to a max recording time of i believe 3.5- 4 hours so there is no point of getting a large storage external.  you can get a 32 gig sd card for 17$ on amazon. i would just buy multiple SD cards before I use a mechanical external hard drive imho. SD is smaller and not susceptible to shock damage etc.

I believe that the HDD needs external power supply to work with M20D.

I have tried with 3 different USB powered HDD, with no luck. my old usb 2.0 HDD with power supply works like a charm. :)

if there is no way to power it besides the usb connector you can get a powered usb [2.0 or higher if available] hub so that u can use the HD you have invested in.
