I have NASNavigator2 (v2.3) installed on OS X 10.6.6 (on a MacBook Pro). My Buffalo machine is the LS-W1.0TGL/R1.
When the app launches is scans for devices on the network and then throws an exception. It never gets the point of displaying anything....except the dump. Below is the first few lines of the dump (there are over 1000 lines in the dump :!: . I can send that if anyone feels they can make sense of it). On the same Mac under a Windows XP virtual machine Navigator is installed and it works ok there. I want to uninstall the entire virtual machine for unrelated reasons but hesitant to do that until I can get this to work under OS X. I called customer service on two separate occasions but they are at a loss for what to do. Can anyone help?

What do you need NASNavigator for?

I'm not clear on where to post this question. Never mind. I'm so frustrated with buffalo.

I just asked because it is possible to live without NASNavigator
on OS X.
If you just need it for the "auto" feature (waking up the Linkstation
and keeping it alive when you need it), there are some easy to do
workarounds available.

This script should help.
Code:
#!/usr/bin/env python
import socket
import time
s=socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_DGRAM)
while 1:
    s.sendto('\xff'*6+'\x00\x12\x34\x45\x56\x78'*16, ('192.168.172.100', 9))
    print "Sent paket!"
    time.sleep(180)

Replace the IP address with the IP address of your Buffalo box and replace
the MAC address (this are the numbers behind "+" and with the prefix "\x")
with the MAC address of the Buffalo box.
The MAC address can be found on the backside/underside of the box on a
sticker.
Replace only the numbers not the "\x".
The name of the file should end with ".sh".
If you need the box, start the script. If you do not need the box anymore,
just close the window of the running script.

The exact same thing is happening to me. Brand new gear and NASNavigator2 just crashes exactly as described. I am running Mac PowerBook with OS 10.6.6. Clearly this is not a coincidence...

Possibly not relevant, but due to a recent crashing episode everytime one of our Macs tried to access our Terrastation 2 via both NasNavigator or direct smb url I had a poke around and discovered that a new folder had been created on the Share drive by a PC user in our network - this, in conjunction with the hidden ._DS_Store file made by Macs creating folders seemed to be the problem.

If you have PCs accessing your NAS drives as well as Macs you should ensure you get rid of any dot underscore DS Mac files lurking on the top level of the drive (viewing the drive via a PC will show it).

Big thanks to kenatonline for the script, working great to wake 2 ls-chls on Mavericks, no need for NASNavigator

Start at login using launchd, instructions here:
