Digital Video Recorder User Manual
First possible reason: hard-disk cable and data cable are not well connected.
Solution: Please check the connection of hard-disk cable and data cable and make sure they are well connected; If still not working,
please unplug them and then try re-plugging again;
Second possible reason: It is forced to stop because hard disk has disabled track which causes the system checking hard disk
cannot skip
Solution: Change another new hard disk or reformat the broken one
Q10: How to input password and digital numbers
The method to input password and digital numbers is to click the box behind password or items needing to input by numbers, and
then the small keyboard will appear. Please select number or letter to input (the initial password is 123456), or you can use the
digital keys in the front panel, or the digital keys on the remote controller.
Q11: Why is the hard disk used in a DVR identified a new hard disk if directly used to another same type DVR? And why
must we format it again?
When DVR only uses one hard disk, the hard disk removed from one to another same type DVR can work normally without format.
However, when a DVR adds to a new hard disk, it will identify the hard disk as a new one and inquire whether to format no matter
whether this hard disk used or not in another same type DVR before. In this condition, it can be used normally after formatted
according to the guide; if two or more hard disks used in different DVR, when used in another DVR with the same type, they will be
identified to be two or more new hard disks, and all of them need to format. In general, please do not try using more disks removed
from different DVR into another one in case the data lose.

Calculate Recording Capacity
Users can calculate the size of hard disk according to the saving time and DVR recording settings. The DVR uses fixed video bit
rate. The below are the details at different settings.

The calculation format is: Total Recording capacity =Used space per hour (MB/h) (coverage rate of hard disk) × recording
time (hour) ×channel numbers
For instance, one customer uses PAL cameras, set resolution to D1, video quality to Higher, frame rate to 25 fps for enabling total 4
channels. He wants the unit to record continuously in a month. Below is the calculation:
Total Recoding capacity =700 (mb/h) X 24(hours/day) X30(days) X4(channels)= 2016000(MB)≈2016(GB)
Therefore, customers just install two SATA HDDs with 1000GB, it can almost record for one month.
