I have been looking but can't find any info on if there are any firmware upgrades that will support 2 x 2TB hard drives in my D-Link 323 NAS? I currently have 2 x 1TB hard drives but was told there is a firmware upgrade to support more storage.

Thanks for any help.

Here's a link to version 1.10 of the firmware, dated 5-Jan-2012:
ftp://ftp2.dlink.com/PRODUCTS/DNS-323/REVA/DNS-323_FIRMWARE_1.10.ZIP

Also, here's a direct link to the Release Notes for it (which are also in the ZIP file):
ftp://ftp2.dlink.com/PRODUCTS/DNS-323/REVA/DNS-323_RELEASE_NOTES_1.10_EN.TXT

Notice item 41 in the v1.08b01 05/15/2009 updates list:
41.Support 2TB HDD.
I have two Western Digital 2TB drives model WD20EARS in one DNS-323 and two Western Digital 2TB drives model WD20EADS in another DNS-323. They work fine in the DNS-323, but these are old models and if I were doing it today I would get the Western Digital "Red" drives, which are designed for 24x7 use in a NAS. The 2TB model is WD20EFRX:
