        Don't panic. There is probably a way to fix your Linkstation. Since I
        haven't run the factory firmware in over a year and a half, I'm not a
        good source of help.

        If you do need to send the unit in and want to get the information off
        of it first, here are the steps:

        1) Remove the drive from the Linkstation (with care you can do it
        without voiding any warrentes.)

        2) Put the drive in a PC.

        3) Run the fixmagic utility on it (if needed to open the 3rd partition
        using #4 below).

        4) Download and run Explore2fs which is a little utility that can open
        the file system that is on the 3rd partition of the drive, then browse
        and copy files from it.

        Alternatively to #4, you can boot up on a Linux live CD like Knoppix
        or DamnSmallLinux and get the stuff that way.

          I did pressed the red button for 30 seconds several times and also did that and removed the power cable and then put it back and turn on the unit (as instructed in the web site for reset) But still not sure that the unit actually reset, because the unit original firmware is 1.43 and the new taht still has is 3.0. I'll keep trying. Thanks a lot.
