I have an LSWXL 6TB on a Mac network. It is rendered unusable by the continual alert message

Image

I've just had lunch and come back to a stack of five warnings. Clear those and another five appear - it posts them every 15 secs or so and you have to clear it to carry on. I've reset the firewall preferences and deleted and set again. Nothing stops it. Firmware up to date.

I suspect it is an incompatibility between Mac OS and the drive format. I can't format the drive to Mac so unless anyone has any ideas I have a redundant piece of kit. Never been used (can't get past this problem), other than re-formatting to configure for Raid 1. Any ideas or offers? Based in Guildford UK. Help!
Cheers, Clive

Throw away the NasNavigator completely.
It is not necessary for proper usage of a Buffalo box.
It is just a convenience tool for the dummy user.

So I did that )not without some difficulty as I had to reboot in 'safe' mode and delete a component in /library/PrivilegedHelperTools

Now the issue is resolved the drive doesn't mount and there's an info/error light flashing but I can't access anything to see what it is.

Do I need NasNavi to link to the online access? If not where is it? What a painful product this is. I love Mac plug n play gear, this feels increasingly like a PC learning curve - why won't it just mount, not too challenging a task in 2013 :|

You should be able to connect to the IP address of the box via
browser and reach the admin pages.
The blinking is always a special blink code in the form "x times
slow then x times quick".
Red means "E" (error), orange means "I" (info), then the number
of slow blinks, then the number of quick blinks.
E.g. I25 means orange blink with two longs and five shorts.
Stupid exception is the "firmware update notification" which is
a solid orange.

For OSX support, enable AFP under Network, Settings, Network Services.
