Storage / Clicking Noise from MiniStation Plus - HD-PNT1.0U3B
« Last post by bergman on March 20, 2019, 03:36:48 pm »
I have a MiniStation Plus - HD-PNT1.0U3B that has worked flawlessly. It is connected to the USB port on my Dlink router. I just replaced the router with a newer Dlink router. When connected to the newer router, the drive clicks. It worked fine on the old router. Is there some known power demand issue with these drives? Any fix? It is out of warranty.

All right, I have managed to be back online
I had to recheck all the disks using an old DOS program DISKPART
Then I re-installed an older version of the firmware (1.06) that I had saved from years ago... I'm not sure I sure load 1.72 since everything is working.
Everything is stable. I have re-created an array with 3x3To drives and the 4th one is set to spare. Like before.

I was not sure if the 3To were supported but the product description did say it was ok.

Thank you for your post, it lead me to the solution. I was ready to get rid of the whole thing.
The problem being that when the TS is stuck on "firmware updating" you cannot connect to the web admin or NasNavigator. So you have the turn it off the hard way, modify the drives, restart to trigger the E/M mode and then you can try something else.
But after each try, you need to verify if the disks were not modified already with partitions.
If so, you need to delete all of it again.
Lucky me I got this USB/SATA converter so I can quickly check all the drives with fdisk

Then I had this one drive which would not allow me to merge 2 partitions... That's when I got to use diskpart. But like it was not enough, it would not allow me to create a single volume afterwards!  >:(
Anyway, Now I got this. I hope I don't have to get through this &!@# again.
For the record, I am using a TS-XL/R5 bought in ... 2008 with 4 drives.

The xfs_repair ran for 2 days and the back fan failed & stop working. This happened twice...
Is there a way to repair the xfs? I just need the data back.

It is possible to change the ID and flash the firmware from the

Storage / HDD size limit for CS-X Cloudstation ?
« Last post by scottb721 on March 19, 2019, 06:35:07 am »
One of my Two 1TB CS-X Cloudstations died. http://www.buffalo-asia.com/forhome/office_nas/cloud_station/cs-x-ap/

The HDD itself was fine but the controller seemed to have developed an issue preventing network access.
Got me thinking about maybe upping the size of the HDD in my remaining CS-X.

Any ideas on what the limit might be ?

Thank you

Storage / LS420D with USB tries to use SMBv1
« Last post by Grandad on March 18, 2019, 12:24:46 pm »
My LS420D is fine using SMBv2 when powered on by itself but if I power it up with an HD-LBU3 USB Drivestation attached, the PC complains that the LS is attempting to use SMBv1!  If I power up the Drivestation after the Linkstation is booted then all is good.  Does perhaps the USB drive force the LS to run SMBv1?
