After putting the new drive into the Humax and switching on, did it attempt to format the new drive as mentioned in the first part of Specaircrew's post #12 ?

My Linux machine did not even acknowledge the presence of the new drive after it had been in the Humax which suggests that either the caddy does not see a formatted drive with no files or that the drive was not formatted by the Humax I will try the drive "internally" in the Linux machine to see if it is detected then. I obviously cannot cause the Linux machine to format a drive that is not detected when the USB caddy is plugged in. Last week I put a brand new drive into a netbook PC and installed Mint 18.3 onto it from a USB boot stick. I don't know if the machine detected the blank drive before the ISO image went across to it....

I am running out of unformatted or blank disc drives to try!

Time to get the lid off the linux box...

Just seen this thead. I had a similar problem some years ago. I found an app called humaxrw which enable a windows machine to access a humax formatted disk. It worked on the 9200 and 9300 machines, don't know if humax have changed their file structure since.
