N4810 memory
#1
so thecus recommends adata or trancend as supported memory modules.

so why when i opened my new n4810 its got a innadisk or inodisk brand 4gb ram module?

theres something seriously wrong here.

either ur supported ram module list needs to be updated or thecus is shipping units with inferior components to consumers.

how can you ship it with something other than what u say you recommend?

then aqain the new os7 units have been around for awhile and not even a sub forum for them yet.

who's ever in charge needs to crack the whip.

It's a 'known to work' / 'known to not work' list. The model numbers change all the time. As long as the RAM stick is to spec (and the quality is good enough) it'll work.

In the case of the N4810, you need DDR3-1600 SO-DIMMs or DDR3L-1600 SO-DIMMs (lower voltage version) in either 2GB, 4GB or 8GB size. Since the N4810 maxes out at 8GB of RAM, you'd be better off to use two 4GB SODIMMs so that the chipset can use RAM interleave.

You may need to run a patch or to edit the MENU.LST file. I'll let you dig around for the info.

Thank Thauma for the reply.
the reason i was so upset by this as before it arrived i was trying to find another 4gb memory module based on the supported ram types.
the adata and trancend recommended ram is still epsensive in north america(if u can find it in stock).
i hadnt actually purchased another stick as i wanted to check the unit to see what was installed so i could get a matching module(i dont like mixing brands).

this innadisk or innodisk brand seems to be something only available in tiawan,china,ect and searching it give nothing for north america.

i know thecus doesnt support or recommend it but i have also read and ask(a ebay seller of many thecus models) that u can install up to 16gb with no modifications.
i ordered some kingston ram,i will post when it gets here the results.

regarding the menu.lst file,i searched my nas filesystem didnt see it.
i would assume it would be in /etc somewhere..

From instructions posted elsewhere here for the N5550:
https://forum.thecus.com/showthread.php?...7#pid62007
1 - Enable SSH on the N5550
2 - From SSH:
# mount /dev/sdaaa1 /boot  <-- normally you're browsing the HDDs, menu.lst is on the Flash drive the NAS is booting off of.
# vi /boot/boot/grub/menu.lst
3 - CAREFULLY remove the "MEM=4G" on the line from the "menu.lst" file. SAVE changes (wq).
4 - Reboot
5 - Confirm that more than 3GB is addressable by the N5550
6 - Disable SSH  <--- optional but if you're paranoid...

i have the N4810 and just installed 16gb(2x8gb) of Kingston KVR16LS11/8.
this is the same low voltage memory you mentioned.
nothing extra had to be done,installed it and booted the nas and it reconized all 16gb.

i know its overkill at 16gb but the difference in price of 2x4gb modules of the brands thecus recommends and 2x8gb of what i bought was only abt 30-40 dollars.
the innadisk(or whatever it is) brand that came in the nas i cant find anywhere.i preferred not to mix ram modules so thats why i did what i did.

That's OS7 - I guess that OS version doesn't need to be patched.

Far as i know, the memory patch is needed only for .CDV NAS models.
- N7510
- N5550
- N4800 series
- N4510U series
- N2800

i forgot to mention something i noticed when i took the cover off my N4810 to upgrade the ram.
there's a additional sata hdd interface thats unused.i should have taken a picture but didnt think of it at the time.
if your looking at the unit from the front it would be above the slots for the hdd's and behind the lcd display.
i'm wondering if they used this same board for the 5810 maybe? does its OS install on the hdd's itself or a separate hdd?
it will only accept a 2.5 hdd(mounting holes and brackets).next time i need to reboot my nas i will have to check the bios(keep forgetting to do this also) to see if it shows a interface as nothing connected.
