I have run out of space on one of my ext HD's and I need to remove the full one and add a new unformatted one.
What is the procedure for doing this in the new CUI?
The new drive is the same as the old one (WD My Book 2 terabyte)
thanks for any assistance

ps I am really struggling with the new CUI, especially with the lack of any info from Dish re how to use it with a 40.0 remote!

Hit the # key on the remote to bring up some help.

Just unplug the EHD and plug in the new one. Once the Hopper recognizes it's attached, it should ask to allow it to be formatted. If your hopper has an extra free USB port, you should be able to leave the old EHD attached and use both at the same time.

Thanks, sounds like the procedure is the same as the old interface.
Still wish we could name our EHD's though--it would be much easier to keep track of what we have on them!
