Just got a replacement unit (wasn't able to update the Media Server on the previous one), and sure enough, I'm still getting the same ol' message:"While firmware updating, Media Server update can not be updated completely. Please click 'Update DTCP-IP' button after establishing Internet connection."
This unit SHIPPED with this error! Way to test your products before shipping Buffalo!
Called Tech Support, and they're aware of the issue and have no fix. I mean, this is just amazing to me... you buy a frickin' NAS because it's networkable!! That's the whole purpose of this device!
Just out of curiosity, could those of you experiencing this issue please tell me a bit about your setup? Seems like Buffalo should be asking these questions, but seeing as they're not, maybe we can try and figure this out ourselves:
I'm have a Linkstation Pro Duo 1TB, I'm on Windows Vista Home Premium x64, I tried updating the media server using both Firefox and IE, and I have a D-Link DIR-655 router.
Please post your Buffalo unit model, your OS, browser, and router model and make... maybe there's a common issue here? Could it be the router??
LASTLY, is there a way to manually update the media server??

as mentioned above I have two Buffalo NAS they are both model LS-WX4.0TL/R1-EU... old one manufactured june 2010, new one june 2011 - the older unit has never been unable to update DTCP-IP..
OS = vista home premium,
Router = Aztech ADSL2+ Wireless G Router (but internet is thru GPON-pppoe)
Both NAS are connected to the same D-Link 5port switch
Browser ? I don't use the browser to update, I use the admin webpage of the NAS..
Q. how do you do it using the browser anyway.??

I'm using the admin webpage as well, but I'm viewing that page in a browser window. Aren't you doing that too? Some people have suggested that using IE instead of Firefox would help, but I've had no luck with either.

It's interesting that you're on Vista Home Premium as well.... doubt that would be the cause though. I think I might try updating it from my wife's Mac tonight.

DTCP-IP does not update twonky. DTCP-IP revalidates an embedded key in the firmware, in case it becomes corrupt. If the validation can't get to the external key server, due to incorrect settings on a router, or due to a firewall, it will not validate.
In this case, you may be able to resolve the issue by reloading the firmware.

"DTCP-IP does not update twonky."
What does that mean? What is twonky?
"...due to incorrect settings on a router..."
What might those incorrect settings be? Do we need to open a port? Do we need to disable Windows Firewall? Why would the iTunes media server work and the DLNA server not?
"In this case, you may be able to resolve the issue by reloading the firmware."
What is the best way to go about that? Reset firmware to default using the web admin page?
Thank you for replying to this thread.

"When the media server is disabled you can updated the drcp-ip without a problem suggesting this has nothing to do with a firewall/router but then when you re-enable it's broke again."
Actually, in my case, I can't update it period. I've tried disabling the media server, as well as the iTunes server and the Squeezebox server, all in an effort to update DTCP-IP, but the update fails every time.

If reloading the FW doesn't work, then a force-FW reload would be the next step (in the STorage stickies)
