Drives From LS-WXL249 inserted into LS200DE
« on: August 21, 2018, 05:37:54 am »
Hello - I had a fan failure in my LS-WXL249 and I decided to upgrade to a newer linkstation model.  I booted up the empty LS200DE and was going to update the firmware - but it looks like it needs drives to do that.  So I tried using the drives from the old unit (2x 1TB - RAID1).  When I power on the LS200DE the activity light is blinking but I can't find the device with the NAS Navigator or the LS Updater software.  Any ideas?

I assume you don't need the data that was on the disks?
PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / Recovery files  LSRecovery.exe file.

I'd actually prefer to keep it.  Looking at the fans, maybe I'll just try the new fan in the old chasis.  Or just put a fan on the drives while I transfer the data...

FYI: Putting the disks from the LS-WXL into the LS220DE will format them.
