Re: [LinkStation_General] HD-H250LAN
When I had a similar symptom, I fixed it by removing my hard drive, putting it in my desktop, booting Knoppix or Trinity Rescue Kit from a CD, wiping the disk, reinserting it into the LS, then reinstalling the firmware.
It's kind of a pain, but by the time you do it for the third or fourth time, you kind of get the hang of it! ;-)
Best of luck,
