Ok I have configured the LS-WXL unit to having 2 Segate 500mb drives in Raid 1, everything was working find for 1 day then  I started getting this message

 

Drive 1 had too many critical sectors , running in degrade mode ( fine drive 1 failed now only running on drive 2) 

 

BUT the unit now just boots up to EM mode and no matter what I do I cannot get the unit to at least boot up with the single drive.

 

I had recently upgraded my FW to 1.26  and here is the best part!

 

Ok the unit is now stuck in EM mode saying UPDATE FIRMWARE OR CONTACT TECHNICAL SUPPORT

 so I try and use the FW upgrade utility it goes through all the transferring of all the files and reboots the linkstation etc.. then it comes back with this error!

 

 

Error after updating FW

 

I reboot and Again all I get is this

 

NAS2 Error

 

Updater

 

 

 

My unit is STUCK IN PERPETUAL EM MODE

 

Please I need help in getting my NAS out of Limbo!!!!!

Is there ANYONE from tech support that reads this forum??

 

I really need this a fix for this ASAP, I just bought this unit less then 30 days ago and Now I have pretty much lost all my data and I was running your RAID 1

 

and I thought my previous western digital NAS was bad. I wish I had gone with the linksys instead!

With the information that is present, have you tried using the force firmware procedure?  http://forums.buffalotech.com/t5/Storage/FAQ-2-of-4-Force-Firmware-update-procedure-please-read-this/td-p/11011  the link provides instructions on how to modify the .ini file and a step by step walkthru to performing this.
