Link act blue and now computer cannot find it

I have had this unit for two years, and everything was fine. My wireless situation stopped working, so I replaced it. Now the same computers cannot find the hard drive (Buffalo LinkStation) and I notice the LINK/ACT light is blue rather than green. Anybody solved this before?

Jennko, I cant solve this problem, but I am having a very similar problem myself because i moved, and replaced network hardware when i moved. I believe this has something to do with DHCP addressing. I hope someone out there can help us. If you got a solution to this, can you forward to me? danny @ dannyhowell . me (no spaces)

Hi, few days ago I bought a Netgear NAS 2110 and connected it to my Netgear WNDR3700 router. I installed RAIDar utility and followed the instructions. Everything seemed to work alright. From my laptop I...


If it's new it's probably doing some housekeeping. The drives need to be formatted and then the RAID arrays need to be sorted.

On installing my server, it took days to complete, however, that was with existing data on the drive.

It might not be letting you switch off because it's busy and doing so would mess up what it's trying to perform.

If you don't want to wait to find out if all is OK, go into the configuratio utility and set just one drive up. This will show if it's working as a unit. If all is fine, install the remaining drives, maybe one at a time.

Yes, the "click" indicates that there is a hardware problem.

Unless you ship the unit to a commercial (and expensive) Data Recovery Service, who will disassemble the unit, repair it just long enough to copy your files, all your files are gone.

If the unit is still under warranty, the manufacturer will replace the hardware, but won't do anything to try to recover your files.

WD mybook 1TB is gone from the network


Have you tried different cables or a different port on your router. Is there any way to get into the Hard Drive by connecting it directly to a PC and checking the network settings or anything..? If not, then you may have to connect it directly to a PC and share it to your other PC's.

Lacie 2 big does,nt boot


Hmmm, reseting worked on mine. Identical symptoms except light stayed blue, not red. Unable to power down.
Before trying to get the drive working I got the data off using the procedure in the second post of this thread:

http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/peripherals-hardware/126831-reseting-lacie-2big-network.html

You need a linux system running. Maybe a live cd will do. I installed on an old IDE drive I had.

I then rest the decive using this procedure from Lacie and my drive is working again. Worthless though, because I can't trust it.

The procedure below will reset the 2Big Network to factory settings:
IMPORTANT NOTE: Following the procedure below can ERASE ALL DATA on the drive. Prior to following these directions, verify important data is stored securely on a different storage device.
Switch the drive OFF. Once it has shut down, ensure the power switch remains in the OFF position.
If the drive is in the SAFE mode, move the RAID switch to the BIG mode.
PRESS AND HOLD the button on the front. MOVE the power switch to the ON position. The light on the front of the drive will start blinking.
Once the light stops blinking, RELEASE the front button.
When released, it will begin BLINKING AGAIN. When it stops, PRESS AND HOLD the front button. The light will begin to blink again.
When the light stops blinking, RELEASE the button. The drive is now resetting itself. Switch the RAID selector back to SAFE if desired.
To restore data if it was lost during the process, recreate the shares and users on the unit prior to the reset. Any firmware updates applied will need to be applied again.

Can't map network drive WD Blue ring edition


The Failed Mount issue is usually caused by Internet Security settings. The most common way to resolve it is to add the following files/ports to the exceptions list of your firewall(s) -- in some cases you will need to add it to the Windows Firewall, even if you have another Firewall installed as well:

MioNet.exe (C:\Program Files\MioNet\jvm\bin\MioNet.exe)
MioNetManager.exe (C:\Program Files\MioNet\MioNetManager.exe)
ServiceStatusGui.exe (C:\Program Files\MioNet\ServiceStatusGui.exe)

These ports are also required for MioNet to create a drive-letter for remote drives:
TCP In/Out 443
TCP In/Out 445

Problem Accessing Shared Folders in Network Stoarage Device


vista is only going to complicat things, try re mapping the drive, delete the shortcut and use my network places to find the drive then make a new shortcut to it if you can access it from there, i've had windows 2000 do the same thing especially with my laptop that I take to school, it a lot of times its due to changing ip's but occasionally windows just seems to forget where stuff is on the network and needs to be reminded. shortcuts can be made by draggin the folder to the desktop or desired location or right click the share you want mapped and select map network drive.
