My DVR-EL8240ME started beeping.  When I checked it, an error of “No Disk”.  However, the system is showing the 1 Sata HDD, but there is no “HDD No”.  Does this mean the drive has failed?  If so, how should I troubleshoot it?

Good day, yes it could be a HDD issue, do you know how many hard drives you had installed?

Ok then the HDD may be failing or got disconnected in some way, try reseating all the hdd connections and rebooting if that doesn’t work then you may need to replace the HDD.

I checked the connections and then rebooted the DVR.  The disk is now being seen, but apparently it has reached capacity and now it beeps a couple of times, then seems to overwrite again and works fine.  If it is set in the read/write mode which should overwrite prior data, what would cause it to now reach capacity?  It has been working fine for a year or so, but now seems to reaching its 1TB capacity.

If your HDD settings in the general tab is set to overwrite then your hard drive will use all off its capacity the whole time and will only over write the oldest file recorded. it normal.
