Storage / Re: Terastation 3400R Recovery Failure
« Last post by Kane88 on February 21, 2020, 11:16:04 pm »
If I remember correctly, all the USB disk for the 3400 series has is the settings and paramaters of the device at the time you make the USB stick.  It doesn't actually boot the device itself.

The 3400 series will boot into emergency mode, no USB is needed for the boot process.

I would wipe the drives again with diskpart. 

With a clean set of drives, you should be able to run the firmware updater again from a windows PC in the debug mode.  Use the debug mode with all options checked for update (left side) and config (right side) to format and rebuild.

Storage / Re: LS210D has red light 7X meaning firmware corruption
« Last post by 1000001101000 on February 21, 2020, 10:43:48 am »
From the various experiments I've done with these devices it seems that:
6x blinks - The device can read the drive and find the boot partition but fails to load boot files from it
7x blinks - The device either cannot read the drive or cannot access the boot partition

This could very well mean the drive is failing.

If you want you can attempt to re-install the firmware with the device as is you can find information about what is required in this post:

Your other options all involve opening up the device and connecting the drive to a PC. I have some notes/pictures of disassembling it here:
https://buffalonas.miraheze.org/wiki/Linkstation_LS210D#Disassembly

From there you could run some diagnostics to determine the health of the drive and try to recover data if it's still working.

Storage / LS210D has red light 7X meaning firmware corruption
« Last post by rider89 on February 21, 2020, 09:58:32 am »
about 6 weeks ago, I updated firmware to 173 and the unit worked OK, accessed it the usual ways to test.  Left it running, but otherwise didn't access it for a week or so.   Now it flashes red 7X which shows in the manual as corrupted firmware.   I've downloaded a 174 firmware file.  Can't access through the LAN, so is there a way to load it via the USB port on the LS210 ?   Or do I need to do something else to get it running again ?   Using Windows PC's.

I've never tried the USB recovery options on this model. It's been somewhere on my list of things to look at for a while.

Setting up the firmware should be fairly straight forward using a variation of the procedure described in this post:
http://forums.buffalotech.com/index.php?topic=30419.0

You should be able to:
1. blank all the drives and insert them into the device
2. Power on the device, it should boot from the onboard NAND into emergency mode
3. Download the latest firmware updater for the device and enable "debug mode"
https://buffalonas.miraheze.org/wiki/Enable_Debug_mode
4. Enable the debug options to allow formatting/partitioning (all the check boxes)
5. Run the firmware updater, it should do a fresh install of the firmware.

Storage / Terastation 3400R Recovery Failure
« Last post by Omniicron on February 21, 2020, 03:00:26 am »
Hi,

We inherited a Buffalow 3400R Series NAS which had multiple failed disks. Upon trying to rebuild it we wiped the image off the disks (we assumed it would of just been on a separate ROM).

We are attempting to fresh start the device as we do need to use it.

We have 4 x 4TB disks inserted.
Disks are cleaned in diskpart with no partitions.
USB Boot TS3000 files are on the root of a USB stick and it is in USB 2.0 socket.

We USB Boot the device and hit the Function button to start recovery.
When it gets to 137 System Recovering it sits there for a few minutes looking busy.
The 3 disks all light up and become active.
At this point it seems to be creating it's own partitions on the disks.

Then it fails with 145 Recovery Failed.
The disks now have multiple partitions created on them but no success.

We clean them again and start over. No joy.

Does anybody have any other suggestions on how to get this bit of kit working again please?
The Buffalow Technical support telephone line for the UK has been offline for days.

Many thanks in advance.

I think those older devices may need a smaller partition, itís been a while since I did it with that model. Try with a 512MB partition and see if that helps.

Iím assuming you were able to extract the password protected zip images, if you were trying to boot the zips rather than the extracted files.

If that still doesnít work youíll need to verify the following:
-youíre using an MBR not a GPT
-that the partition is partition 1
-your EXT3 filesystem is using 128 byte inodes (the modern default is 256)
-that youíve got the correct files with the correct filenames.

These are all fairly easy to validate if you boot into a linux environment, Iím not familiar with the tools for doing so under windows.

I made 2 partitions, the first partition was 1gb and I tossed the 2 .buffalo files on the first partition which is in EXT3 format. I still get this darn red light E15 code :(

It needs to be in a partition (the first one) rather than the whole drive. The inode size is also important, though your program may default to the correct value.

I formatted the first drive using aoemi partition assistant in EXT3 format, I then used ext2fsd to transfer the 2 .buffalo files to the drive. Then I put that drive in the nas slot #1 without any other drives. The unit powered on and then I get one 1.0sec red light followed by 5 quick .3 sec lights. I am assuming the code is E15. That didn't work so I repeated the above process with another drive only to have it flash the same code.

If you provide more detail around how you are partitioning/formatting/unzipping/copying we can probably identify where it is going wrong.

Youíll want all the drives inserted when it comes time for the install bit you should be able to reach EM mode with just one.
