Good Morning,

I've searched through the board; I can't find any solution to my problem, I thought posting might help!

My LS-CH500L-EU is stuck in EM-Mode, and I can't fix it. I've had no successful replies from Buffalo tech support, or their forums.
I've tried ACP Commander (output below) and I still can't force install the correct firmware. Every time I get the "acp_state_failure"
I can't seem to get the TFTP boot procedure to work, everything looks ok but I don't see the two lines of text that should be the response from the linkstation.
Would anyone be able to assist me? Provide a few new ideas or point out where I've been going wrong?
I'm happy to provide more details if necessary, screenshots etc...

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

I had a similar issue with my LS-CHL being stuck in EM Mode. Hopefully you've resolved your problem by now but for those that are searching for a fix then the following worked like a charm for me.

1. Create a shortcut of your updater executable.
Note: This is found in your Buffalo CD Image for your NAS drive and is called LSUpdater.exe.

2. Right-click the shortcut, choose Properties and in the Shortcut tab add /force to the end of the target.
Example: "C:\Buffalo\LSUpdater.exe" /force

3. Double-click the shortcut to run it.

This process takes a few minutes and will serve to flash the firmware back to its original version

4. Reset your NAS drive (instructions below)

To reset your NAS drive (no data will be 'harmed' in this process):

1. Switch the unit to Off to power it down (wait for the lights to die out).
2. Hold the Function button down for 10 seconds whilst off, then whilst still holding the Function button down, switch the unit to the 'On' position.
3. (Still holding the Function button down) When the Function light begins to blink, release the Function button, then press it again and release it (don't hold it down).

When the power light is solid again, your drive has (hopefully) been restored. This solution worked for me but it's not guaranteed to work in every case.

Good luck!

I'm new in here since I hadn't any problems with "it".
But couple days ago I've run in to "EM Mode" on my LS-CHL-V2.
I've founded needed info except for one.
I was trying to use LSUpdater but I got error:
Could not confirm whether the partition exists.
Cannot update the firmware.

Firmware updating is aborted.
Those that mean my HD is dead?
Now I'm little confused and need second opinion.
If anybody be so kind to respond.
