Getting the IB-MP301 up and running couldn't be easier. Simply open the side of the unit by unscrewing the four large black screws and lift out the plastic side panel. Once inside you are presented with an IDE cable and a molex connector. These need to be connected to the hard disk you have chosen for the unit (in this case an 80gb Hitachi Deskstar).
If the hard disk you've installed is brand new, it will need to be formatted using the FAT32 file system. Unfortunately, due to an operating system limitation, Windows 2000 and above are only able to format up to 32GB when using FAT32 (see Microsoft KB article here). However, Raidsonic do have a DOS based utility that can be downloaded from their website (here) that allows the disk to be formatted up to its maximum size.
With the disk installed and formatted, you will then be able to transfer files to the Icy Box and access the main setup menu using the remote control. The following images have been taken directly of my LCD display with the IB-MP301 connected.
