I have a DL4100 and a PR4100. Both are on firmware 2.31.204. Both want me to upgrade to 2.41.116 firmware.
For the first time, I am reluctant to do so. I wonder if this new firmware has anything to do with so many DL4100s dying. Since both of my machines are running fine and I have my DL4100 routinely backing up my data to my PR4100, I think I’ll just stay on 2.31.204.
I note that WD doesn’t even sell a DL4100 anymore but they do still sell EX4100s and PR4100s. I wonder why that is? Was there always something inherently wrong with the DL4100 motherboard/logic board?
My own DL4100 has been running (without issue) since March of 2016 (…knocks on wood…) and I hope she continues to do so for many more years. Since mine is not exposed to the internet, I’ll just stay at 2.31.204.
