Follow the setup guide correctly, just press the func button on the Linkstation quickly (press/release, dont press and hold), the LEDs will start to flash.

Wait 15 minutes for the firmware to install itself onto the new disks.

Thanks. Have now made two of the shares viewable which for the time being is what we need.

My issue now is that when I test WebAccess from the office I can access the shares using BuffaloNAS - no problem, but of no use! If I try to do the same outside of the office I get the message 'This site cannot be reached' took to long to respond'. The IP address it quotes is ours with our broadband/internet supplier. I've had three different people try and they get the same response.

I've checked with our supplier and they say that there is nothing wrong at their end.

Has anyone else come across this before, and if so how do I remedy it?

maybe more info will be useful.  The box has linux (suse) on it but the user forgot the password.  So, I'm using a live linux dvd to get to the /home are and back it up before installing it again.  The live dvd is running Linx Mint 18.3.

Does any of that help?

So far so good.  I've followed your instructions and have reached the point where I'm writing a fresh backup of the SSD to the reformatted disk.  The Acronis app is acting a little funny since it wants to copy the external disk contents to the NAS.  I may have to reboot to get Acronis to quit, and then restart Acronis and delete that interfering backup.
This brings a windows explorer with my list of shares on the NAS, and I can navigate to them in that.
right click on one folder an give it a drive letter
That doesn't work with Win10 and disabled SMB1 (such as you get by default with Win10).
My post above explains what needs to be done.
Hi stagger321
I see you have like I, an LS220D and wonder if you could answer a question based on your experience.

My trouble is that I cannot access the shared folder on the LS220D as a network share from my media player..
Yes, I can map the shared folder to the windows desktop through the NasNavigator, and yes, I can also access the media files on the NAS if I activate the built-in 'twonky' media server on the Nas...

But all I want to do is access the Nas when it shows up as a network shared folder... (I have other buffalo Nas and they show up as a 'small network icon').. so my question is does yours and can you access the files..? does it ask for user + PW..? which PW..? admin of the Nas or network user+pw, or anonymous+blank?
thanks in advance for any help you can offer..
Hi doobre,
This all changed when Microsoft disabled SMB1 in Windows 10.
I assume this is what you have on your PC??

I also assume you have SMB2 enabled via the LS220D menus. and therefore as you say can setup the 'share' network drive via the NasNavigator.
To add other shares from the LS220 you can't get to them via the 'Network' icon in Windows Explorer, you need to manually add a new Mapped Drive.
This is done in Windows Explorer when on the ‘This PC’ icon.
Map the network drive to \\'IP address of your NAS'\'Share name'. (don't put in the quotes)
This works fine assuming you have granted sufficient access to that share on the LS220D.
Give it a go.
