I have the 500GB version and use it only for my own purposes at home. It has been working ok - I accessed it from my XP machine (I usually got a driver related error message on XP - but I could see the content as mounted hard drives on my local network.) My company migrated my laptop to Vista. I could not access the device.
I used my other XP laptop and started a firmware process hoping that would solve my problem. As I was waiting for the half hour to pass by I fell asleep, so it had all the time during the night to finish.
In the morning I saw the page not found on the laptop screen so I thought it just timed out. I tried to search for the files and I managed to access the ones in shared folders. Mionet even asked me to name the device - so I have a the box listed under two different names - one is a Storage Drive and the other is a Network drive - both appear offline :-((
With good intention I wanted to turn off the device so it can cool down. Although I kept the main button (with the blue circle) pushed for 10 seconds nothing happened. So I disconnected the power.
After adding the power back the blue light does not come on any more. I tried the reset with waiting 40 seconds with the paperclip, but that does not help either.
Please let me know how I could review it. I have used it as it was out of the box - I am not a Linux expert, so at this point I am hoping there is a reset combination that could help.
I plugged it in after a few days off and it started spinning but no access so I unplugged it.
Three days later I plugged it in again and it started to work. My XP machine accessed it and I could even copy off some files but after about 10 minutes it "fell off" the network. Now it does not want to turn off, so I have to unplug.
