HALP! [NAS box is in EM mode!]
Title pretty much sums it up...
I was never shown the software apart form a basic "this is how you install it from a disk" so I've got no clue how to get it out of EM Mode.
I know it needs firmware updating, but I have no idea how to do it... [And I don't want to [censor] up the backups]
We have a Buffalo Terrastation, not sure which one.

We have a Terrastation and a LinkStation here and I've used several Terrastations before. Don't panic yet. From experience Terrastations are built like tanks. You need to see what errors are displaying/LEDs are lit on the unit itself to work out what to do next.

Also, if you're feeling brave you could try and telnet into the NAS via ACP commander - more info here:

So, I tried to update it...
This is what happened.

From my old Linkstation (we are talking almost 7-8 years ago tho, so this is from memory) when its in EM mode, it has a 192.168.1.150 IP address, so you need a PC in that IP range, again from memory!

Ours is saying it has the right IP address... I don't even have the key for it, so I can't test the disks. [I've read somewhere that it can fail to boot properly if a disk is damaged.]
