Settings: Installing your own
hard disk drives.
Nativ Vita features two bays on its backside to install hard disk drives or SSDs that meet the following specifications:
- 7, 9 or 15mm thickness
- Interface: SATA III (6GB/s)
- Capacity: With software 1.4.0 and later we support a maximum of 5 TB per drive (10 TB in total).
The following scenarios are supported:
- One hard disk drive: 100% of capacity will be used for storage of music and related data.
- Two hard disk drives:
a) Combine both hard disk drives and use 100% of capacity to store music and related data.
b) Use one hard disk drive for storage, and the other one for backup.
Note: If you insert two hard disk drives they must be of the same brand and model.
Before installing the HDDs please put your Nativ Vita on a soft surface so it does not get scratched. Place it with the glass front facing downwards so you can access the two hard disk drive bays on the backside.
Start with removing the one Torx screw that attaches the cover plate (you need a T50 screw driver for that).
Once you have removed the cover plate please unscrew and remove the hard disk mounting plate(s). They are attached with two Phillips (M3) screws on each side. Note: If you want to install one HDD you only need to remove one mounting plate. It does not matter which slot you are using for the HDD. Align the 4 mounting holes on the mounting plate with the 4 mounting holes on the backside of the HDD. The mounting plate must not cover the SATA interface of the hard disk drive.
Attach the hard disk drive with the 4 screws (included) to the mounting plate.
Insert the hard disk drive(s) into the bay:
- Slide the hard disk drive carefully into the SATA interface on Nativ Vita.
- Attach the hard drive mounting plate with the 2 Phillips screws to the mounting poles on the side.
After the drive is inserted please close the Nativ Vita Music Server with the hard drive cover.
Boot up your Nativ and go to SETTINGS > SYSTEM > STORAGE to set the configuration for the hard disk drive(s).
