35670A "External disk not responding"

Hello all, newbie here. I'm connecting to my DSA through a GPIB connection, and the ultimate goal is to get the analyzer to save/load instrument states from my PC.

First I set the DSA to be a "System Controller", but when I try to set the default disk to "External Disk", it gives me the error message "external disk not responding". I checked the address on the PC and the DSA and both are set to 0.

I switched the machine back to "Addressable Only" and sent it the command :MMEM:MSIS 'EXT:C:'.  It doesn't give me any errors, but it still doesn't set the default disk to external. Any ideas?
