Question about Western Digital NetCenter WDXE3200JBN 320 GB Network Hard Drive

3 Answers

Western Digital NetCenter crashed

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 the same problem. I e-mailed Western Digital but no response yet. My HD responds to pings. I did a port scan on it and the only open port I found was 110 (POP 3). Has anyone found the answer to this? I have a WD5000B019 500GB Netcenter

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?

Hp 2420 offline error


Upgraded all jetdirects to their latest firmware, DOWNgraded any jetdirect J7949E on firmware v33.15 to v33.14 (.15 is horribly broken and crashes after a couple of minutes usually).

I have enabled SLP protocol on all the print servers, I have then telneted into the jetdirect to set slp-keep-alive (available with the firmware updates) to a value of 2 (2 minutes between slp anouncments).

I have changed the MAC age time on all the switches to 900 seconds from the default 300.

Jetdirects now announce themselves every 2 minutes stopping the switch forgetting that they exist. I have added a logoff-period of 1800 seconds to a single port with a Xerox printer on it which stops it reauthenticating every 10 minutes (unable to change slp interval on it).

This may or may not help, but I've had the printers on line for the last week now and when I ping, they are still there!

Delete or reset a wrong firmware file for IVO- m600 mp3 Player (Rockchip)


This is how to get into update mode,

All you do is this,

1) Switch the player OFF using the main on/off switch.

2) Hold down the "MENU" or the "PLAY" button and keep it held down.(try the other buttons if these dont work)

3) Connect the usb to the player.

4) Wait for about 10 seconds before releasing the button.

5) You should be now in "ROCK USB" upgrade mode

6) Then just start ConsumerUpdate and upload your firmware.

You probably have Winders Media Player 11. If you can find another computer that has WMP 10, you can use that computer to do the firmware upgrade, then go back to the original computer. Thingsa should work fine. Otherwise, you need to unistall WMP 11 and WMP11 runtime. Another case of Billy messing us up. And don't even get me started about vista....

I had this same problem.  The solution is to unplug it from your UPS and plug it directly into the power outlet.  I know this sounds crazy but afte 1.5 hours on the phone with WD tech support I finally got to a top level tech and he said this is a common problem.  They just don't work consistantly when plugged into a UPS.
