Wireless / Cannot log into my NAS control panel I but can log in through FTP
« Last post by attroll on December 26, 2020, 09:02:50 pm »
I have been getting the message that my NAS has a new firmware update.
I tried logging into my NAS so that I could to the upgrade, but it will not let me.
I know I have the right username and password.
The reason I know this is because I can still FTP into my NAS with the username and password, but it will not let me log into it with my NAS control panel. It keeps telling me “User authentication failed”.
I have tried it through a normal connection and a secured connect and still cannot get into it.

I contacted Buffalo and they said I must reformat the NAS and start over. I find it hard to believe because I can still FTP into it with the same username and password.

Has anyone else had this problem and found out how to get logged in without formatting the NAS and starting over?

This is what Buffalo said:
The only way to reset the password on your TeraStation model would require deleting all of the data stored on the drives. The reset button on the TeraStation 5000 models has been disabled to prevent unwanted access to the data and settings on the Buffalo NAS.
Storage / 2009 Hard Drives - time for replacement
« Last post by DLI on December 26, 2020, 02:29:12 pm »
My Linkstation Pro Duo (LS-W2.0TGL/R1) has two 1 TB Hitachi drives made back in 2009.   One of them is starting to die, throwing up some errors (I forget what error exactly as I have pulled them from the LinkStation - after backing up the data).   My goal is to do 2 things.
a) replace these drives with new 2 TB drives
b) completely erase these drives so they can be sent off the recycle depot

A few questions ..
1) is 2 TB the max I can put in this old LS?  I plan to put them in Raid 1 config.

2) how do I remove the data on each of these old drives?  I can't seem to connect to them via standard windows OS so I can read/format/erase (would like to use DBAN)

I don't know, but including the text of the error that you mention may help someone help you.

My LS220D is behaving the same way.  Has anyone found a solution to this?  I have the latest 1.75 firmware on the LS220D.
How to differentially backup more than one share to an external USB drive?  Thanks.

Maybe you need to change your shĺt attitude first before looking for help on a forum.

I'm not interested in re-training as an IT consultant. I got my degree in Computing and when I buy a product, I expect it to work out of the box, within reason.

This Buffalo rubbish is a stinking disgrace.
Storage / LS210D - Why?
« Last post by the_dr on December 23, 2020, 05:48:12 am »
So, I've been reading the threads about connecting the LS210D because, like others, mine has been appearing on NAS Navigator, but then failing to connect to my File History. It used to work, sort of, but would connect/disconnect randomly.

I've tried checking services ✔
I've updated all software/firmware ✔
I've gone into developer mode and made my PC discoverable ✔

I've spent literally hours trying to get this thing to work.

So my question, why is the Buffalo LS210D a stinking pile of 💩 ? Because it is.

Hypothetically, you could use acp_commander to gain shell access and transfer a compatible version of sdparm over and make the desired changes.

You can get acp_commander here:

I’m not familiar with sdparm but a version built for an older version of Debian (maybe Lenny) might work.

Alternatively, You could also replace the firmware with Debian and then install/run anything you like:
Storage / LS421DE50E dropping
« Last post by 03bluecoupe on December 22, 2020, 10:23:57 am »
I have a Buffalo LS421DE50E that is attached to my network. I have it populated with 2-3TB drives and use it as backup and important files storage.

It's run flawlessly for years (don't recall when I purchased it) but recently it "loses" the connectivity to our laptops and there's no way I can "mount" it again without rebooting it.

I've checked the firmware and it's up to date. Our laptops are running Windows 10 Pro and are constantly kept up to date.

Anyone have any suggestions of what to look at/for?  Or should I break down and buy a new enclosure?
