My WD hard drive died, I replaced it with the same type, how do I get the QC software onto the new drive?



You do not need to install software on the hard drive, you only need to format it. Menu - Advanced - Disk Manage. Click the Disk and click format.


It is actually a QT5716, I replaced the drive but still get a continuous high pitched whistling sound. Any ideas?

please locate the power supply for your cameras and connect that power supply to the DVR. Then see if the same error occurs

camera power and dvr power are interchangable.

You would want to use Western Digital Purple, or Seagate Skyhawk hard drives as replacements.
