    the 5TB HDD is formated in GPT-NTFS
    The 6TB HDD is formated in GPT-NTFS
    every HDD is from Seagate same Model 3,5 inch

    Hi Olsch

    Pls, clarify : You just put out the disk from its own casing and connected it to X9s with the provided e-sata cable ? That 's all ?

    Or you also formatt it inside a pc first ?

    @Olsch USB interfaces are often not transparent as they typically do sector translation (the >2TByte limit).
    Sure it is GPT and not MBR initiated?

    Logical Sector size is 512 bytes and no (hidden) other partitions?

    That defeats the advantage of using their external SATA port. This model is probably the only 'TV box' (as the Chinese calls them) that has that feature. USB3 has irt's own problems by adding one more coversion (interface) to the mix.
