I am not aware that Verizon has released a list of "certified" external drives.  Most of us in the beta test have been using the WD 1 TB MyBook AV DVR expander (WDBABT0010HBK-NESN) without issue.  There has been talk that the WD 2 TB may also work (and be able to use the full 2 TB) but I don't know of anyone that has tested that option.  Please keep in mind that this is a peer to peer (user to user) forum, so unless the poster has a VZ user name (which mine DOES NOT), nothing said here is official.

If a forum member gives an answer you like, give them the Kudos they deserve. If a member gives you the answer to your question, mark the answer as Accepted Solution so others can see the solution to the problem.

so far just western digital my book's,  the twitter guy says the hard drive "needs to support over 100Mbps sustained I/O (40Mbps write) - hard core performance"


I don't think they have an official list yet,
