I do not own a TS, but if you haven't put at least one disk into
the TS (maybe it is even necessary to put three disks into the TS),
this is "normal".
Buffalo stores its firmware/OS onto the disks. There is just a small
"bootloader" within the flash. The majority of stuff resides on each
disk (each disk has one dedicated partition with firmware/OS stuff,
which is a mirror of each other, so you can remove any of them and
the OS is still available).

Look at this side to get a clue how to get your TS into EM mode.
http://forums.buffalotech.com/t5/Storage/FAQ-1-of-5-EM-Mode-boot-procedures-please-read-this/td-p/11008
In EM mode it should be possible to flash a new firmware.
Important to know is, that you can configure the NASNavigator
into debug-mode where you are able to force a firmware update
and to repartition your TS (you should do this repartition!).
How to get into debug-mode is described here (Message 2):
http://forums.buffalotech.com/t5/Storage/step-by-step-all-steps-for-flashing-ls-xhl/td-p/10724

At least for Linkstations it is best to have no partitions at all on
a new disk or the correct partition layout. Everything else causes
problems according to other users.
So either delete all partitions or create the correct partition layout
for a Terastation.

Have you read the instructions for your model at the
first link I posted? Everything is explained there in detail.
I can't tell you more than that what is written there. :-(
Unfortunately I do not own a TS (as I wrote in my first
post already) and therefore can not test the instructions
myself. But because they are part of the official Buffalo
support forum, I assume they are working fine.
