2.4.1 BLK-HD4D, BLK-HD8D DVD-R/W installation
If your DVR does not include an internal DVD-R/W drive, use the following procedure to install one. The DVD-R/W can be used to
archive stored data including video clips and snapshots. Your DVR will accommodate one standard-size desktop system DVD-R/W
drive with a serial-ATA (SATA) interface. If your DVR was purchased without a DVD-R/W drive or HDD drive, a hardware kit,
including mounting brackets, screws and cables is included with the DVR.

CAUTION
1.
Follow recommended electrostatic discharge (ESD) guidelines while performing this procedure. Install the DVD-R/W drive in
a static-free environment, wearing a certified ESD wrist strap. If a static free environment and ESD wrist strap is not available,
touch the bare metal of the DVR chassis frequently when installing the drive to dissipate the static charge naturally generated
on your skin and clothing.
If your DVR is powered on, use the menu system to perform a System Shutdown.
a.
Right click anywhere on the live view screen, then click SYSTEM SHUTDOWN in the pop-up menu (see “3.1 Starting
the system for the first time” on page 28), or click the SYSTEM SHUTDOWN icon on the taskbar.
b.
Follow the on-screen instructions for shutting down the system.

SATA data interfaces on the PC board are labeled HDD1, HDD2, HDD3, etc. Not all are connectorized. Always use the lowest
numbered connectorized SATA data interfaces for the HDD drives in the DVR, and a higher numbered connector for the DVD drive.
For example, if HDD1 is not connectorized, but HDD2, HDD3 and HDD4 are, and two HDD drives are (or will be) installed in the
DVR, use HDD2 for the primary HDD drive, HDD3 for the secondary HDD drive, and HDD4 for the DVD-R/W drive. Connector labels
are marked on the PC board.
In the following example, HDD1 is not connectorized, an HDD drive data cable is plugged into HDD2, and the DVD-R/W drive
data cable is plugged into HDD3.

SECTION 2: HARDWARE OVERVIEW AND SETUP
2.5.2 BLK-HD4D, BLK-HD8D HDD installation
The HDD is used to store video and snapshots recorded by the DVR. Normally, DVRs have one internal HDD and one internal
DVD‑R/W drive. However, a second internal HDD can be installed in place of the DVD drive, if needed.
Your DVR will accommodate one standard-size desktop system HDD with a SATA interface. If your DVR was purchased without an
HDD, a hardware kit, including mounting brackets, screws and cables is included with the DVR.
For attaching bracket
to DVD-R/W (flat-head,
fine-thread screws (4))
For attaching bracket to
HDD (pan-head, mediumthread screws (4))
For attaching bracket
to chassis (pan-head,
course-thread screws)
Mounting Brackets (one pair per drive)
Screw types
To install an HDD, carefully follow the procedure below.

CAUTION
1.
Follow recommended electrostatic discharge (ESD) guidelines while performing this procedure. Install the HDD in a static-free
environment, wearing a certified ESD wrist strap. If a static free environment and ESD wrist strap is not available, touch the bare
metal of the DVR chassis frequently when installing the drive to dissipate the static charge naturally generated on your skin and
clothing.
If your DVR is powered on, use the menu system to perform a System Shutdown.
a.
Right click anywhere on the live view screen, then click SYSTEM SHUTDOWN in the pop-up menu (see “SECTION 3
System Setup” on page 28), or click the SYSTEM SHUTDOWN icon on the task bar.
b.
Follow the on-screen instructions for shutting down the system.
2.
