I’ve had a perfectly working MBL (3 TB) for almost a year now, and had no problems with it. I always upgraded the firmware regularly and maintained a sound networking environment.
The other day, I had to restart modem/router (as I routinely do), so I shut down the MBL via the dashboard: the shutdown was successful. After I restarted the modem, I plugged the MBL back on, and the problems started!
I have no more working LEDs on the front panel (used to work perfectly fine, in spite of what I read on several threads here), no more IP address that I can reach (I have searched for it via both wireless and Ethernet networks, even plugging it directly to my macbook pro… I tried the arp -a command… nothing), no more dashboard access, no more quickview, and I obviously don’t see the drive in my finder or explorer (I have tried both with PCs and Macs.)
The drive seems to spin (I hear and feel it humming), but I have the impression that it’s ALWAYS spinning.
The lower LED on the back (near the Ethernet port) is a fixed green, and sometimes the upper one blinks green as well.
I have read through and through this forum and on the user manuals… and I can’t seem to find an answer. Can somebody please help me?
Thanks in advance!
