My Book Live - browser UI cycling with message ‘Initializing Device’

I don’t know exactly when and what set it into this error condition and could be that it attempted an auto firmware update .

One of the error messages mentions firmware but didn’t manage to read the complete message.

In another old thread on here I read that a member was able to set SSH and the access the drive and reload the firmware.

I was able to click the SSH box, but I’m at a loss on how to access the drive using SSH.

Could someone please help me with what to use and how to use it to access the drive using SSH and reload the firmware?

Hi,

Thanks, but the link you posted didn’t take me to anything that looked like it would resolve the issue I described.

This requires the web based UI to be accessible, whereas mine is repeatedly reloads the page, making it impossible to make setup selections.
