To format a hard drive or array, select it from
the Target Disk drop box. Choose the file
system desired from the File System dropbox
(internal drives can only be formatted with XFS).
Note that FAT32 has a 4 gigabyte filesize limit
for individual files. If you choose FAT32 for your
file system, you will not be able to store single
files larger than 4 gigabytes on the drive. Use of
the XFS or EXT3 file systems is recommended.
Press Select Target Disk when done, and then
Depending on the size of the target hard disk or
array, a disk format may take several hours to
complete. Shares on the LinkStation will not be
accessible during the disk format.
Note: Reformatting a drive will erase all data
on it! Back up any data on the drive before
The Buffalo have a description of the codes in their knowledge base. You can see on how many times it blinks what the cause of the problem is. If I am right the device is about 6 years old, the HDD might fail..... In any case it is out of warranty and if it is truly the drive maybe you can swap it.
there is no one blanket answer to this problem that could have many causes. It could be the DLNA server on the linkstation, it could be the version of the firmware on the PS3 or it could be the files that you have on the linkstation, BUT this link on the sony forum touches on some of these and offers some solutions
However most people seem to install something called twonky server, which i am planning to do...... hope this gets you started.
There is a reset button on the back that resets your security and setup, but does not wipe out what's on your hard drive. Follow the instructions in the user guide to reset the device using the Reset button (it's probably just a matter of pressing it in for 10 seconds, then unplugging it and plugging back in).
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)

I would agree with you, unless that model has a fan and the fan bearings are out. Bearings will make a huge noise when they fail. But, you mentioned it's also dead.... so it might actualy be. Even if the unit is out of warranty, sometimes the hard drive inside has a 3 - 5 year manufactures warranty. Depending on how the unit works internally, you might be able to replace that hard drive and continue on.
