H2wS EHD problem

Just hooked up a previously used EHD in place of one that was functioning properly. Got a popup saying the EHD needed to be reformatted for use. Unfortunately it was working fine when I disconnected it awhile back.

I left it plugged in and did a hard reset. Got the same popup.

Any suggestions?

To verify, this EHD was used on the same account, with the same account number, and with an hDDVR before, correct? A VIP211 and a Wally will both have a different format than a DVR. If it was an HDDVR that it was used on, on the same account, Dish may be able to authorize it with a programming hit.

Do you have any recordings on the hard drive? If not, please reformat the hard drive. If you do, please send a PM so that we can send an authorization signal.
