Have you checked those discs externally? Most of the time if the updater gives a format failed there is an issue (errors on disc/incompatible)

Yeah, it sounds like you best bet is to completely wipe, or at least remove the partition tables of both disks and start fresh.

This procedure should be able to get it working for you:

Can you be more specific about what you tried exactly?

If you give us the steps that you've tried with sufficient detail we may be able to figure out where you're going wrong.

ok all was working very well for 4+ years with no problems at all, i then had a power cut in my house  and when power came back on the nas was in EM MODE on BUFFALO NAS Navigator2 as seen in photos i then tried  ls_series-v174 to do update again this also filed as seen in photos  here  https://ibb.co/Zz2NnRJ

drives that where in the nes when it failed are 1 WD 2TB green & 1 hitachi Deskstar 500GB 

this is now where i'm at

pulled all drives and cleaned all dust from nas
put drives back power up nas i get some blue blinking blue light (Function LED) on setup and then a solid Blue LED: Power on
i then open LSUdate find my nas and hit update and get Partition not detected i then hit yes continue update at this point i get format failed


next i tried 
to edit the LSUpdater with this
 
[Application]
Title = BUFFALO LinkStation Series Updater Ver.1.74
WaitReboot = 1200
WaitFormat = 600
WaitFileSend = 600
WaitDiscover = 120

[Target]
ProductID = 0x00000011
ProductID2 = 0x00000012
ProductID3 = 0x00000013
ProductID4 = 0x00000014
ProductID5 = 0x00003006
ProductID6 = 0x00003007
ProductID7 = 0x00000015
ProductID8 = 0x00000016
ProductID9 = 0x00003008
ProductID10 = 0x00004001
ProductID11 = 0x00000017
ProductID12 = 0x00000019
ProductID13 = 0x00000020
ProductID14 = 0x00003010
Name = LinkStation

[Flags]
VersionCheck = 0
NoFormatting = 0

[SpecialFlags]
Debug=1

closed LSUdate and re opened

on the top left i go into Debug Mode
first i try  default setting

update BOOT
update KERNEL
update initrd
update rootfs
do not check version and click ok hit update and get the fails in photos

i then go back to  Debug Mode
update BOOT
update KERNEL
update initrd
update rootfs
do not check version
and now click force update

still getting the fails in photos

i have also tried settings in Debug Mode

rebuild partition table
and delete user partition

still getting the fails in photos

so at this stage i pull all old drives and put in new ones

first with 2 drives in power up nas

and follow whats above all over again still getting the fails in photos

i have tried only using one drive still nothing

new hdd are
3 WD red 2TB new
2 WD green 2TB NEW
1 SAMSUNG 500GB NEW

 ALL come back saying Partition not detected i then hit yes continue update at this point i get format failed
all this is done with my AV off
i also see a red led lite up in side nas  never seen this before as i all ways put cover back on after drives

thanks for your time

There are a few oddities that show up with some of these devices though I wouldn't think you would be running into any of them. some devices won't install the firmware unless minimum number of drives are present or the drives are bigger than a certain size. None of that should apply to you trying to install firmware to 2 matching drives in an ls-wxl.

what are you doing to prepare the drives before you put them in?

I'll try with one of mine when I get a chance and see if I run into anything unusual.

It depends, I can try that too when I get mine out.It might just mean that itís in TFTP mode or it booted from internal NAND. Either way if youíve been managing to get the device into EM mode and itís been showing up in LSUpdater there canít be that much wrong with it.

That may be true either way, it is a rather old device at this point.

The data is stored in an XFS filesystem which can be accessed from a linux environment. Where you using Raid0, Raid1 or just two drives with separate shares?
