My LinkStation HD HG300LAN works fine, but if I switch it off, I can't turn it back on again for about 30 minutes. It just refuses to boot up.
Is this by design, or is there a setting I can change somewhere? Firmware is 1.63.
Thanks for any replies.

This is not by design. It sounds like something in the hard ware is failling. I would suggest a backup as soon as possible.

Thanks for the reply.
The LinkStation is backed up each night, so no worries there. It's always shown this behaviour (several years of use), but I agree with you. I suspect a replacement will be needed soon. Any recommendations (don't need huge amounts of storage)?

If your looking for a single drive then I would suggest either the LS-XHL or LS VL (if speed is important). If you want a dual unit for RAID then I would suggest either the LS-WXL or the LS-WVL(again for speed).
