RE: [LinkStation_General] Re: cannot change password LS
- Hi Goat,Thanks for your reaction.My LS is now in EM-mode and there is no way of getting out of this mode.I tried to update the firmware (or better reflash 1.47 again). It looked like the procedure went well, a lot of hard disk activity but at the end I got the message that the renewal of the firmware was not successfull.So now it is time for plan B: removing the drive, saving the data, formatting the drive and reinstalling the firmware and then reinstalling Twonkey.I was already looking to get a Knopix cd/dvd but as I learn from you that is not needed so I will first try to attach the drive to my windows desktop. Thanks for the driver tip!William

get FTP access? If you can copy the data, then you can start fresh.
If no access, then I would suggest recovering the contents from the
internal hard drive, formatting the internal hard drive with 1 partion
(it doesn't matter what file system) and then reinstalling the
firmware twice to bring the unit back to default conditions.

http://www.linkstat ionwiki.net/ index.php/ Recover_a_ non_working_ %22bricked% 22_Linkstation
This would not require linux use, as the internal drive is ext3, and
www.fs-driver. org has drivers for windows that are known to work well.
all the best,
