Cannot force firmware to update
« on: July 20, 2009, 06:33:24 pm »

I was getting an E04 error, so I booted into EM mode to try to force a firmware update. I downloaded the firmware, extracted it, and edited the lsupdate.ini that came with it according to the instructions. Here is the contents of the file:


Title = BUFFALO HS-DHTGL Updater Ver.2.14
WaitReboot = 500
WaitFormat = 300

ProductID = 0x00002006



However, when I run TSUpdater.exe, it finds the terastation, but when I try to update the firmware, it says "PC and HS-DHTGL firmware version are the same. Updating is not necessary." I thought that the changes to remove the VersionCheck and to a Debug would make this not necessary? Also, it looks like I'm not getting the debug options in the UI, either.


Why is it not correctly parsing my INI file changes?


This is an HS-DH2.0TGL/R5, and I downloaded the firmware from here:

Did you right click on the taskbar and go to debug and select the option to "not check version"?


Also make sure that you hit enter (return) after "WaitFormat = 300" because in your post you didn't

No, I did not. :smileytongue:


I don't know how I missed that from the instructions. Usually I'm pretty good about following them.


Thanks for the answer---it's updating now.
