Storage / Re: External HDD file transfer to LS220DE
« Last post by Texturtle on August 31, 2018, 09:12:19 am »
I would suggest installing NAS Navigator to assist in managing the LinkStation. It sounds like you're double-clicking on it in Windows Explorer where it shows as a media server. Instead just type \\<ip address> in the navigation bar for Windows Explorer. This should show the default shared folder, "Share". You can open that and transfer files using drag and drop.

Storage / Re: Upgrade a single drive in a RAID5 array (TS-XE8.0TL/R5)

Keep in mind that this WILL NOT increase the space on the array. RAID 5 creates a parity stripe across all drives, it must use the same amount of space on each drive. If you put in a larger drive the extra space will not be usable.
Useful indeed.Thanks!

I would be very glad to know about it as soon as it works.
I'm so sick about this default limited OS... the shares are Ok, but the backup process... Oh man, it sucks, and, everytime that i need to sync data with an usb disk.. I NEED TO DO IT REMOTELY... ie, use a workstation as bridge (network traffic) to copy from raid to usb disk over local lan instead of.... local nas hardware...
CRAZY

Thanks for the reply, obviously I was looking at this wrong - I thought, once loaded with files, I could use the NAS as a media server plugged directly into the AV receiver as it and the receiver are DLNA compliant.

I use Yamaha MusicCast to control speakers in different rooms and have now configured it to show the LS on the source area. I transferred a couple of albums via usb stick and they show and play from the NAS with no problem, which is what I wanted.

One more question - how do I transfer files over the network? I don't seem able to drag and drop them with explorer and double clicking on the LS just brings up 'Twonky' which shows the albums but not the drive.

Wireless / Getting dd-wrt on WHR-300HP2D
« Last post by loyola515 on August 30, 2018, 05:13:12 pm »
I have a new AirstationN300 (WHR-300HP2D) and have been attempting to flash it with dd-wrt.  I've read that I need to 30-30-30 reset it, followed by flashing the bin file via tftp2.exe.  I changed the IP address to 162.168.11.7 and every time I try to flash it, it does not find the device.  Is there another process that will work to get dd-wrt on this device?  Thank you very much!

Storage / What happened to nas-central.org

Hi,

 I am trying to fix my ls-xl and want to find instructions to open it. I remember that in the past I could find them in buffalo.nas-central.org, but when I try to access the site today it is down.

 Does anyone know how I can access this valuable information?

Thanks,
Rani.

The LS220DE cannot be connected to the AV receiver via USB at all. Did you mean via Ethernet? Does your receiver have an Ethernet port?

The LS220DE is a NAS. The best way to move files to it is over the network. I'd suggest connecting the USB drive to a computer and copying the files to the LS220 via the network.

This will only work if your receiver has an Ethernet port and can function as a DLNA client.

Storage / External HDD file transfer to LS220DE
« Last post by camulus on August 30, 2018, 02:39:23 am »
Hi,
I am about to start using my new NAS drive as a doorstop!

What I want is very simple; I want to connect a DNLA compliant drive to my AV receiver in order to play music.
I have an external HDD with about 1.2Tb of music on it however, this cannot be read by the AV system.
My plan is to connect the external HDD to my LS220DE via usb, transfer the files over and then connect this to the AV receiver via usb.
The problem is that the NAS does not recognise the drive half the time and when it does I cannot transfer any files!


I have tried connecting the NAS directly to the PC via ethernet (no recognition), the HDD to the NAS via usb (sometimes it can "see" it sometimes it cannot) but I cannot transfer files.


I have tried the backup routine but that does not work.

Surely what I want isn't so outlandish that this piece of kit can't do it?


I was hoping for a routine that was useable in the way windows transfers files?

Texturtle, I just wanted to say I followed your suggested process yesterday and it worked like a charm. Overnight, the raid array was built/checked successfully, so I'm and running again with almost 3 gigs/redundancy. Thank you so much!
