Depends, there are 2 different versions of this unit, if both are the same then I don't see why not.

Storage / Linkstation LS-CH1.0tl compatible with LS-CH1.5TL

Can I take a drive from LS-CH1.0TL and move it to a LS-CH1.5TL system?

I'm having the exact same issue as Don.
Storage / replacing 1st drive in LS-WX6
« Last post by drsyker on March 25, 2017, 09:53:43 am »
My LS-WX6 has died.  I've pulled the two drives out and found, by sticking them into an external hard drive mount, that the first (far left) drive appears to be dead.  The computer has no response when this drive is mounted.  On the other hand, mounting the second immediately prompts for me to format the drive.  I am assuming/hoping this means the drive is fine, just that it can't be read because the computer doesn't have the ability to parse whatever RAID config/format Buffalo is using.

So two questions:
1) Would the dead first bay drive explain why the Linkstation is no longer bootable? (i.e. is the system software only present on the first drive?)
2) How do I get the system up and running again so as to recover the data still present on the 2nd drive?
Storage / Linkstation LS220 Permissions
« Last post by Z1PPY on March 25, 2017, 04:20:18 am »

I have a Linkstation LS220 and recent did the latest Firmware update (1.65-0.12), since then my main local account could only access the share with the rights of the HDuser (read only) user group, even though it is in the  admin group and this is the primary group for the account. I've just tested elevating the access of the HDuser group to full read/write access & now I can read/right again. As I didn't want everyone in the HDuser group to have full admin access, I've just created another R/O group and moved all the standard users to that.
So have resolved my access issue, but was it just me, or was a feature of the firmware update?

Count me in as needing this, too. I've tried all other options.

Storage / Can't Flash Firmware - Cloudstation - Faulty Unit or Faulty User?
« Last post by RussFord65 on March 23, 2017, 12:18:52 pm »

I recently replaced 2 faulty drives within my Cloudstation NAS that was working fine.  I then started to get the dreaded 6 flashes showing firmware damage.  Despite following the instructions given to me by the Buffalo Tech team I am not able to get past the Requesting Access line in the TFTP boot application.

Buffalo Tech are saying that it is a comms/hardware issue and nothing further can be done, but I have seen quite a few users with similar issues.  I have tried their solutions - different PC, etc but no luck.  Has anyone got any pearls of wisdom that might solve the problem. 

The TFTP boot screen shows it is listening on the right ports, I have disabled firewall/defender, the lights are flashing next to the Ethernet port, I have completed removed all partitions on the drives, incl the GPT partition - but I don't know what I am missing.

Having just spent 140 buying 2 new drives, I don't want to spend 100 on a new enclosure unless all possibilities to flash the firmware have been exhausted.

Many thanks

When it comes to a hardware RAID (which this has), then the disks should be identiical. The st2000dm001 is still avaialble anyways.
