Hi

My new LS-WVL NAS suddenly crashed. This is what I did to recover it.
Plugged out the drive from NAS and then connected it to my laptop using a USB adapter.
Removed all the partition using my computer management in windows 7.
Now i had 160 GB of unallocated free space.
Disconnected the hard drive, reinserted it into NAS and try to boot it
Now the Function LED turned RED and the NAS Navigator did identify the NAS in EM mode.
Now i connected the NAS to my LAPTOP directly and started my NAS.
Using the LSUpdater i tried to update the firmware.
it went on for a while when the NAS rebooted it rebooted with RED function light glowing for sometime and then it switched off as well.
And the BLUE power light was still on.
Now every time i restart i can see the blue power light and nothing else. Also it is not showing up in NAS Navigator anymore.

Can someone please help me....

DO NOT connect the NAS DIRECTLY to your PC/Laptop.
It is not configured to work this way by Buffalos factory
settings.
It assumes an available DHCP server and will use a so
called "zero conf" address otherwise (169.254.x.x).
Btw. 160GB seems to be a extremely small value for a WVL.
How many disks do you use?

I have also tried that way(connecting to router and firewall disabled). Still the the exact same thing happened. I just have one drive, but it used to work before. But all of a sudden this happened. When I try to connect the drive once again to laptop using the USB adapter to remove partitions, I was able to see some partitions created by the LSupdater two 977MB partitions, one 147GB Raw partition and three smaller partitions.

Use a Live-Linux-CD which supports XFS filesystems.
Then look, if the LSUpdater placed files onto the first
and second partition.
If yes, I assume a problem with your network setup
in general (not only the network setup of the LS).

To get nzbget to auto start make a file called S90nzbget and put this in it:

Code:
#!/bin/sh                                                                       
# Start/stop the NZBget daemon.                                                 
#                                                                               
case "$1" in                                                                   
start)   echo -n "Start services: NZBget"                                       
   /opt/bin/nzbget -D                                                           
   ;;                                                                           
stop)   echo -n "Stop services: NZBget"                                         
   /opt/bin/nzbget -Q                                                           
        ;;                                                                     
restart)                                                                       
   $0 stop                                                                     
   $0 start                                                                     
        ;;                                                                     
*)   echo "Usage: $0 start|stop|restart"                                       
        exit 1                                                                 
        ;;                                                                     
esac                                                                           
exit 0         


Save it to /opt/etc/init.d

If I read the OP correctly, you cannot start up and/or reach the NAS anymore?

You can try a TFTP recovery if the normal firmware updater does not work. See here: http://pastebin.com/5sY24CTQ

I recommend you use a Linux Live distro to delete all the partitions from the drive. Knoppix v7 (CD or DVD, doesn't matter). You can also copy it to a USB drive.

This will remove all your data on the drives.

Do you still have this unit? Still bricked? I will buy it from you!
Just fried UART in mine. It still works fine. It's new, just have my fingerprints on it;D We can swap if I will fix yours!
