try this link guys.. ftp://ftp.dlink.es/DNS/DNS-320/Firmware/Firmware%202.02/Firmware/DLINK_DNS320.2.02b01(2.08.0923.2011)(BETA).zip .. got it in this thread http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=42352.15

The release date on the file you quote in your post is the same month of the original beta firmware 2.02 that was removed from circulation. I advise waiting for the sanctioned updated file on the U.S. FTP site.

D-Link always say "wait, wait, wait".
But they should know that we never get this for free. >:(

Is there a change log to go along with this latest 2.02 firmware?  Please post if there is.  Thank you.

The release notes listed in the sticky reflect all updates since 2.00, the last official release.

Hi,

just to bring up some good news.
The 2.02b01 works like a charm (for me ;-)
Time Machine and AFP issues are resolved.
Works fine with Lion now!

Unfortunately I have no file bigger than 4GB to say that this bug of the previous firmware was resolved too.

Have a nice sunday
Ralf

I have to say this release of a second version of the software with the same name is really amateurish.  How difficult would it have been to call it 2.02b2?  

Also, after the update the only way to access the P2P folder seems through the web based file manager.

In the previous version you could access the P2P folder on the drive, or you could mount it explicitly through the Explorer.   Now it's nowhere to be seen.  

 :(

I'm glad to see there's now a firmware version that allegedly supports Time Machine on OS X Lion as this was what I originally bought my DNS-320 to do. I've had to continue using my (failing) WD My Book Firewire drive for Time Machine while waiting for the firmware update to come.

However, I'm extremely reluctant to install this firmware at present for a few reasons:

  • As noted by others, the firmware file's date modified is 23rd September which appears to be the same modified date as the previously withdrawn beta version, which also shares the same version number. How can I be confident I have the right one?
  • I have seen no SHA-1 hash of the file to verify that I have downloaded it correctly. It's conventional to supply this information alongside the download link or in a text file on the FTP server.
  • While I understand that this is beta software and there will be some risks associated with it, no indication has been given of how much testing has been done on this firmware version prior to its release. To what extent are users installing this firmware guinea pigs?
  • I haven't seen any estimated schedule for the final release version of the 2.02 firmware. Do D-Link have any estimates they can share? I need to know this so I can make a decision on whether to install this version or wait for the release version.
  • The ZIP file I downloaded contained one file - called "DLINK_DNS320.2.02b01(2.08.0923.2011)(BETA)". Presumably this is the firmware binary. There were no other files in the ZIP file and the difference in size between the compressed and uncompressed files is 26KB - less than 0.1% of the file's size. I'm curious as to what the point was in ZIPping it?

I'd appreciate answers to the above points so I can have some confidence installing the firmware in the knowledge that I won't lose data or brick my device.

Thanks.
