I have experimented in replacing the 500gb drive in my HAP S1 - in my case I am trying to resolve a problem that occurred a few weeks ago not long after the firmware update. My S1 crashed and stopped reading files off the HDD. When the 'rescan HDD' option is used 'some errors' are detected. This problem is not solved by changing the HDD drive for another - when factory reset the S1 recognises whichever HDD is fitted and reads the size of the drive correctly. If I connect an external drive via the usb port I can format the drive 'successfully' but it then is identified as 'not available' when the HDD status option is used! I can transfer files onto the drive using SyncBackFree and these are stored on the internal drive and visible over the network on my PC. However - the S1 itself does not detect any album / track etc even though it correctly displays how much of the HDD has been filled / is still available. The Sony HAP Transfer software will not transfer anything onto the S1 stating that 'no file extension is selected' even though the app is set up correctly to transfer all file types. The HDD Audio Remote IOS app also will not connect to the S1 even though it is found as a unit in the App Settings. I have run out of ideas for what fix to attempt. There seems to be no means to set the unit back to the earlier firmware to make sure the recent problems are not related to poor installation of the latest firmware. I cannot find anything online to indicate that this problem has happened to another HAP S1 user. Any advice much appreciated.
