I have the same problem with my Linkstation II,
ver. 2.05. The USB drive was working for two days afterwards
I could't connect to the USB disc anymore. I tried everything,
reflashed the firmware, used other USB drive, used different
startup procedures. I got different states:
1. I do not see the USB drive at all
2. I see the USB drive in the browser USB setup page, but I can't
access the drive, I can't format the drive
3. The DIAG red LED on the Linkstation flashes six times
periodically, I can't access the Linkstation at all
Did you solve your problem already?
