Hi, it happened this evening!
A few days ago i transferred Openlink with success, added two USB-Disk via a HUB and installed Twonkyvision. All went fine since today. I shut the LS down and replaced the HUB (it wasn't mine) with a dlink usb2-hub.
Then i booted the LS again but only this happened:
- the Power is "On"
- the Network-LED is on (flashes every20 sec. fast, for 1 sec.)
- the harddisk "does" something
- the linkstation is not found by ping (tried 192.168.11.xxx)
- the firmware-updater does not find it
- Partition-Magic (Windows) can see the 3 partitions but can only show me part of the content on partition 3
- Linux can't see anything on the disk (or i'm too stupid)
- mount "can't read the superblock"
- mke3fs -n /dev/hdc1(2/3) "Input/output error while trying to determine fs size"

Can anybody help me (i'm a linux-rookie)?
Thank you in advance,
PiPan

Hiho,
no ideas?

I did a backup of the data-partition and it seems, that some of the files on the partion can be rescued. I've used a tool from Stellar (Phoenix Linux) to have a closer look on the content of the partition. Phoenix tells me about 25GB (of 230GB) that can be restored.

What should i do (try) next to wake up my LS (after restoring)?

Hi pipan,
Buffalo seems to set some bits on the hard drive so that a regular linux can't access it. There's a tool called fix_ext2_magic which fixes this. Read the article http://buffalo.nas-central.org/Articles/GeneralUpgradeHD to find out.
Also, I tried to mount my hdd with an older SuSE linux version without ext3 filesystem support, and it didn't work even after applying the fix_ext2_magic patch. With a newer knoppix bootable CD it worked though.

Hi seboston,
thanks. I've tried fix_ex2_magic on Suse 9.2 without success. Phoenix found a lot of inodes and restored most of them.
The first partition seems to be absolutly damaged. I'll download a fresh Knoppix-iso and give it a try.

Yepp,
Knoppix did it. And i was able to transfer OpenLink back to hda1 after mkfs and EM. The LS is alive. Puhhh.
