Network drive rebooted after power outage. instead
Network drive rebooted after power outage, instead of 2x500GB it just shows one disc in the NAS setup and nothing can be changed. The drive has 2 WD green 500gb HDD inside and each one reports 2048GB connected to a linux live CD......any tips?

I think you mean hard drive. NAS devices aren't meant to be plugged into computers. They're meant for networks. NAS means "Network Attached Storage". There should be a disc that comes along with it to set it up. If you don't have one, you can connect to it through a web browser to set it up, thats usually how its done. If you look at the devices in your network, you should find its name, and then you can type in its name in a browser. As an example, if its name is seagate-nas, then you type "seagate-nas\" (without the quotes, and with the '\') into your browser and it should come up
No. Hard rives are for the most part the only moving part on a computer. Failures occur randomly just as flat tires on cars occur randomly. If the drive is going to fail it is normally due to wear or factory defect.
In your office network, for sure, you have a DHCP server who gave the IP addresses to all devices for that network and this seems to be the reason for why you could see your NAS. On home, you also need a DHCP server. You don't say anything about you home network. The best idea is to just make a temporary network with 2 devices: your computer and your NAS by connecting the NAS directly to your computer's network adapter, set the IPV4 IP for that adapter to the same class addresses as your NAS was set by default (usually NAS had "192.168.x.y" where "x" could be 0, 1 or 2 "y" could be any value between 1 and 254, but mostly, 1) and try to access it via http to manage him (need a user name and a password). For NAS default address and username and password, consult NAS user manual. Access it with from your preferred browser using: \\192.168.x.y
Once you gain the control, cut off his DHCP service and tell him to accept the IP address from the network defined DHCP. (btw: one normal DHCP server is allowed on one network! Cascaded DHCP also is allowed, but it's a little bit complicated) Good luck!
Same issue here
Running win XP on my laptop and I have my LaCie NAS on my network and was working fine 'til today.
Issue: unable to access my LaCie NAS
troubleshooting done:1- rebooting NAS 2-power cycling the whole network 3- also tried accessing NAS from a Mac Book (used to be able) 4- nable to ping it by name or by IP
I had one my NAS's shares mapped to Y:, Now I can see the share from my network places but when I go to map network drive the Y: is no more assigned to that share.
My next move would be to re-install the NAS but I want to know and make sure that this will not delete what I have on that NAS.
Thanks to anyone that would jump in and give a hand to a desperate novice in Networking
Consider a few things that may solve the problem: 1. this is how I always like to test; shut down the NAS drive for a minute and reboot; once rebooted see if it is accessible 2. need to know the ip address of the NAS drive and make sure that ip is not blocked by your system firewall (e.g. add that ip into trusted address on the firewall program; or temporarily disable any anti-virus or firewall and see if you can access, and if you can then it is the issue of firewall), 3.unless you have customized the settings, open my computer and on the addressbar type type the ip address if you know (if it is WD Mybook World then you can also try typing \\mybookworld on the address bar); in this case also try it by temporarily disabling any anti-virus or firewall program 4. one way you can figure out the ip for your nas drive is through the router's homepage; since I don't know your router type I can't give you specific steps; but try to get onto the router's main page and see the client's list or DHCP Client's List or something similar where you should see an ip also assigned to the NAS drive which is connected to the same router.
Post the feedback what happens... we'll see... good luck !!!
