Hello,

I have a LS-XHL (LS-XH1.0TL-EU). A couple of days ago I was informed by the daily summery email that the HDD might fail soon. I was on a business trip and when i came home i was unable to access the linkstation.

I cycled power and the blue LED is ON (not flashing!). I was not able to ping the linkstation on the fixed IP and was unable to access my data.

I downloaded NAS Navigator2 (2.63) and i am able to find the Linkstation on the network (now set to DHCP). Linkstation is reported to run in emergency mode.

I tried to flash the firmware from the Buffalo website (1..65) but the firmwareupdater is unable to flash the Linkstation. I am getting the following message:

What can I do now to access my data???


Thanks for your help,

Loennermo

The "usual" way.
Remove the disk from the box, download the CD from here:
http://www.sysresccd.org/SystemRescueCd_Homepage
and burn a CD/DVD. Connect the disk to a PC and start the PC using
this CD/DVD and copy your data (last partition!) to an external storage.

When attaching the HDD to a PCC i am getting a warning about smart attribute #5. If i boot linux it does find the harddrive but no partitions.

Any hint?

Which "Linux". There is not just one flavour of Linux, so "Linux"
is not enough to tell you anything helpful.
If you are in doubt, take the SMART utility (aka. disk check) of
the MANUFACTURER of the HDD and do a disk test (take care
to use NON-destructive tests only). It will tell you, what's the
matter with your disk.
