Move Drive To New Controller changing external disk controller RRS feed

  • Question

  • my console shows one of my disks as failing so i tried the disk with a new controller( originally buffalo 1tb external drive) and have discovered that its only the controller that is failing but when i use the disk in a new external controller the server does not recognise the disk as part of the storage as the disk name is wrong.the disk was a buffalo external drive so displayed as a buffalo drive but the new controller simply recognises the disk as a wd 1tb, is there any way to rename the disk so as to make my server realise its simply the same disk with new controller(ive tried removing the disk through the console but tge controller dies after 5mins)sorry if its a simple thing but im wreking my brain as the disk is part of my storage with several hundred dvd rips on it and it would be a nightmare to loose the data .
    thanks
