Question about Iomega NAS P400u (32371) 40 GB Hard Drive Array

Open Question

Iomega P400U I have an Iomega P400U that recently failed. Apparently during a remote firmware upgrade one of my co-works disconnected the power supply. Anyhow.. long story short we can boot the device and the hardware is functional but the OS was totally lost. I talked to Iomega and found I can get a new number one drive complete with OS however the cost is outrageous and I'd like to see about using 500gb drives to upgrade the capacity anyhow. Any idea what else I might do or use to make this system functional again. I've tried reloading it from scratch using Linux but its not that easy. I keep having problems seeing all the drives (still using 40's) etc... any help would be great!

Damaged drive controller on HDD a possibility. Pull drive and test as a slave to rule out a bad RAID controller. Let me know if the drive is failing under SMART setting in system BIOS upon boot.

How I can recover emv400 after power disconnecting during firmware upgrade


You are never allowed to disconnect power during firmware upgrade. If you do, there is no way to recover from it, except to unsolder the firmware chip and install a new properly-programmed chip.

Upgrading your Iomega P400U


I was trying to upgrade the capacity of the NAS by adding 320 gb hard drives. I kept running into problems with the bios not supporting the drives and not finding drivers for the system. I came across an Open Source program called FreeNas that solved all the problems. It works great.

My nokia n91 is not powering on while im upgrading its firmware.


Hello Sir, This issue is seen very usually in cell phones. It is very common that after upgrading the Software's firmware, the phone's mother software fails and becomes unresponsive. This results in failure of the phone and it doesn't powers on. If a phone fails after upgrade, the company immediately voids the warrenty of the Phone. In some cases, it is impossible to repair or rollback the software. In your case, you can only do one thing. Kindly take it to a Nokia Service Center and ask them to anyhow re-install the phone's software.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

My 3com officeconnect doesn't work after upgrding the firmware


Are you able to login to the router? If you can reset the router to factory defaults..If you can't login to the router...Is there an external reset button on the router you could try to reset. with a paperclip? Otherwise, I had this happen on a linksys router/switch. New router time. You should just return it where you purchased the product. There was already something seemingly going wrong if it was rebooting. 3 weeks? just return it. don't even mention the firmware update. Here is the site info for 3com: http://knowledgebase.3com.com/ OfficeConnect - Firmware upgrade fails with incorrect user interface image Problem: Incorrect user interface image Problem: Firmware upgrade fails Problem: Error when upgrading firmware Problem: Incorrect firmware Problem: Wrong firmware Fact: Firmware Fact: Download Fact: Update Fact: Upgrade Cause: The downloaded .exe has not been extracted Fix: The downloaded .exe needs to be extracted by double clicking on it. When performing the firmware update use the extracted files that were obtained from the "exe" file. e.g You will obtain a "bin" or "dlf" type of file which is the firmware required for your upgrade. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
