Got this used diskless rackmount Tarastation Pro II cheap, I first tested it with a few 2.5 inch HD and all is working but when I replace it with 3.5 inch HD and it will give the error message of disk disconnected and I had try every HD that I have, old and new and still got the same result.

Anyone had experienced this ???

I'm assuming you haven't wiped the previous array yet? It sounds like the unit is still looking for the original member hard drives. You can remove the previous array's from the web interface, but this will remove any data in the array.

Are you trying to swap out the 2.5 disks for 3.5 one at a time or all together? If you want to preserve data on the array, try them one at a time so the array can rebuild correctly which can take several hours per disk. I would personally back up the array, wipe it form the web interface and then insert your 3.5 disks and build a new array which should work.
