I bought a MBL 2TB a couple of days ago. This evening I took it out of the box, connected it to my home lan, performed a firmware update (I forgot to write down the old and new versions) and everything was ok. The NAS was mapped on my laptop (Win XP), I could create folders and so on. Nice!
Then I had the (bad?) idea to change the description field in the dashboard and the problems started. It took ages to get a confirm message which turn out to be an error message (again I did not write down the error code because I thought: hey! How bad can this be?) and then, after having pressed the ok button the window “saving” appeared again. I waited for a while (a long while) then I decided to restart the drive. The leds say that everything is ok, but I cannot access the drive through the dashboard and Windows cannot find it. I restarted the whole lan too just to be sure that I was not fooled by some router caching but it did not help. Restore the “factory defaults” would be fine for me because the drive is still empty but I understand that it is possible only through the dashboard!!! I tried the reset button but it did not help. At this point I am out of ideas, so any suggestion is warmly welcome.
