Could Dlink developers say when will be released a new firmware that fixes the big problem of data corruption / 0 file size - data integrity issue! or any way to roll back firmware 2.0 ?

I was having DLNA problems so I upgraded to 2.02 firmware.  The DLNA problems were still there but after the upgrade I could no longer browse the file server on Snow Leopard.  Since I couldn't roll back the firmware I tried this 2.03 beta firmware and still cannot use this machine with Snow Leopard  :(

Was considering throwing the thing away and getting a ReadyNas Duo as its now useless since it wont work with my Mac even though its supposed to be running Samba.  But then I read that the ReadyNas has similar problems with OS X 10.6.  Am currently looking at replacing the unit with a LinkStation Buffalo.  In the meantime, I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place sitting in wait for new firmware while my device sits there like a stupid black brick. 

I'm just about throwing in the towel with NAS between PC and Mac, its just a too hard basket not worth the effort.  I've invested money in the NAS and disks and it adds up to be a pretty expensive exercise for hit and miss consumer hardware.  I'm really not going to waste more money upgrading to Mountain Lion just in the off case that it "might" work.

It would make life so much easier if you could simply roll back firmware rather than roll the dice.  ???

Upgrade to Lion

Okay, just noticed that copying files through windows explorer doesn't work anymore (at least not in every file transfer). Copying goes fine, but when you look at the target file, it's 0kb and obviously doesn't work.

Hello,

The two problems above occur with versions 2.2 and 2.03 ?

My NAS is with version 1.00.
I am in doubt whether to upgrade to a 2.00 or higher (2.02,2.03).

I will use two 2TB disks.

Thanks
sorry my bad inglish

Unfortunately the v2.03b01 firmware is unstable and completely unreliable.  We just observed a scenario where several tens of GB of 600Mb sized files spontaneously disappeared from the DNS-320 (unit A)  when another DNS-320 (unit B) began a remote backup to unit A to a totally separate directory.  Not all of the files disappeared, just everything that had been written up until the remote backup started to arrive in a different set of directories.

It is obvious that whoever has inherited maintenance and upgrade of the software does not have the proper expertise to test it or to fix it competently without inducing even more serious fatal defects. Unless D-Link can offer a path to a stable working version of their firmware, it is time for D-Link to do the honorable thing and immediately offer a refund or exchange to all DNS-320 users to something that provenly performs as advertized (or face a clear case for a class action lawsuit)!

Yea, 2.0 is pretty stable, mine came shipped with that and it worked well untilI upgraded to 2.03 :) . I think 2.01 is  also somewhat stable. 2.02 and 2.03 have serious problems with file transfers.

It for sure doesn't off time machine support and causes many troubles with mac os.
they should change the specs and leave mac compatibility out of it.

I just sell mine because I need a NAS which is reliable.

We just completed an exhaustive test of the DNS-320 using Retrospect 7.6 backup software and there is good news.  This v2.03b01 firmware appears to have fixed the large data file corruption problem that existed in 2.02 firmware.  We wrote out over 400K files into 200+ GB of 600MB each, files and then did a thorough compare on the stored files vs. the original files and after 20 hours of testing everything passed! The 2.02 firmware had failed this test.

There may still be a serious issue with the Remote Backup.  In our test case, the source Remote Backup on 2.00 firmware did NOT have "Ignore Existing Files" checked.  The source was backing up a hierarchy of directories with two leaf nodes say A & B.  The target DNS-320 on 2.03b01 firmware had existing files already written in one of the leaf node directories, A, but the source DNS-320 on 2.00 firmware did not have any files in that leaf node directory A and was supposed to backup the files in the other leaf directory B (which it did). The source DNS-320 deleted all of the files in directory A on the target, even though there were no files in A on the source.  I think this does not seem to be the correct behavior.

Not good!  A much more exhaustive test of the DNS-320 Firmware v2.03b01 produces an error in the test software.  It is not clear if it is a file corruption issue or the DNS-320 goes to sleep and doesn't wake up again when it should.  Still some problem(s).

We traced the above error to a full disk.  Apparently Firmware v2.03b01 does not graciously communicate a full disk situation and the files get corrupted and then the drive appears to become unresponsive.

So I think the consensus is that the newest firmware is bad and we should not upgrade to it. Should I stick to v2.0 then?

Is there an ETA of when we will get a FIX???

I just bought a Seagate 3TB hard drive but it looks like I won't be able to use it.  >:(

If I install my 3TB hard drive with Version 2.0 fw, what happens?
