How do I know which firmware to use
« on: May 30, 2009, 10:12:41 am »
   

I have a LS-W1.0TGL/R1 and it recently went into EM mode.  I have downloaded the firmwares, but the Buffalo site seems to offer two options for the Pro Duo: 1.09 or 3.09.  How do I know which one to use?  I don't recall the firmware that it was using before and the updater shows ---- for the version.

 

Thanks,

CJ

Check the back of your Linkstation Pro Duo.

 

Near the power plug-in, on the sticker, see if it is Made in China or Made in Japan.

 

Made in Japan is version 1.xx

 

Made in China is version 3.xx

 

Download firmware version 1.xx if your unit is Made in Japan

or

download firmware version 3.xx if your unit is Made in China.

   Wow, now that is obscure.  Thanks for the quick response!  It was made in China, btw.
