Question about Western Digital NetCenter WDXE3200JBN 320 GB Network Hard Drive
I've tried to upload a new firmware. It is supposed to switch off after 2 or 3 minutes during upgrade. This one powered off immediatelly after I pressed 'upgrade'. I waited at least 30 minutes before touching it (recomendation says about 5 minutes). Now it responds(ping) to its original IP, but nothing else. Not even the power LED lights. Is there any way to upload the firmware without the web GUI?
I have a dead one as well - won't power on. I took it apart and found that there's a DR1220 button-cell battery on the underside of the main board. It should be 3V but only shows .6V on my meter. I'll swap it out and update my post if the problem is solved.

Umm... it sounds bad. If you can't get the unit to power back on after your performed the firmware update, it may have power failed during the update... and "bricked" it. Try a different power source and see if you can get it to at least power up. If it won't, there is probably no way of recovering it. I'd suggest contacting Western Digital to see if they have a recovery process for a firmware failure. Is it still within the warranty period?
