Storage / Re: Where to buy diskless NAS?

Which model do you have? Do leds light up when you try to start the device? If so which ones?

For nearly every model the "firmware" is stored on the drives. In most cases firmware problems can be corrected without replacing the device but it depends on the details.
Storage / Where to buy diskless NAS?

I have a LinkStation whose firmware was corrupted after a brownout, but both of its HDDs check out as 100% fine. Where can I buy just the LinkStation (or analogous) enclosure? Do I just go to eBay, or can I purchase this new?

The TS5810 uses an ARM based processor, it therefore has no BIOS option to boot from USB and does not have a video port.
Storage / Terastation 5810DN questions

Hi!  Great forum here.  I hope someone can help me with this. 

I am trying to find out if the Terastation TS5810DN has a "boot from USB" feature and if so how to enable it.

I know that the TS5800D has this feature as well as a VGA display port.  The 5800D has a USB boot switch (label #13 on the unit's Diagram) along with a VGA port (label #12) as seen in the manual:

However, here is the manual for the 5810DN model:

Unfortunately I do not see these two options which would be quite useful for booting purposes. 

Am I missing something or is there another way to boot from USB on the 5810DN?
Is there a VGA port available anywhere (even if need to open it?)

Storage / How do I select a web access folder?

I have a new Linkstation with firmware 4.40.  I checked to see if an update is available and it's not.  The user guide says when creating a shared folder to be the web access folder check the web access LAN protocol under folder settings. There are numerous protocols to choose from but there is no web access protocol.  I guess the user guide is outdated? How do I select a web access folder?
Storage / iPhone app not working with iOS 13...It needs updating.

I am a newbie with a new LS520.  I tried to install the Buffalo mobile app from the Apple App Store on my iPhone XsMax running iOS 13.2.2. It won't install. I contacted Apple and was told Buffalo needs to update the app. I am very disappointed that I can't use the mobile app.  It was one of the reasons I chose Linkstation.  How long does it generally take Buffalo to update?
Storage / Why can't I upload large file to the LS520?
« Last post by emanon on November 09, 2019, 06:55:24 pm »
I am brand spanking new to using Linkstation or any type of server. I just purchased and started using a Linkstation LS520 4TB straight out the box.  I was uploading some movies to the Linkstation that I need off my old USB drive.  One was greater than 4GB and Linkstation returned the error message that the file was over 4TB and too large.  Does this mean the Linkstation came formatted FAT32? If not, what is the stock format and can I reformat to exFAT? Why am I being limited to 4GB files?
Storage / Restore data from USB HDD

How can I restore data from a USB drive to a new NAS?
I purchased an LS210 NAS and it is up and running on my home network.
I also have a HD-CX1 drive attached via USB, NAS Navigator sees this and indicates 186GB are used. This makes sense as it has been used as a backup for an old LS-V2.0. I believe it contains all of the data I need to restore.

LS-V2.0 seems to be booting OK, blue light blinks while starting and after a few minutes is solid blue as if it is on line. However I can no longer connect to it over the network, seems to be a problem with the Ethernet port
