Exclamation NAS QNAP TS-412 Setup
Device:
Model- TS-412
Internal HDD- Hitachi HDS723020BLA642MN6O
Version- 3.4.4.
Configuration- ‘Standalone’
Operating System: Windows XP SP3
QNAP Finder Version: 3.5.1.417

Hey guys really hoping someone can give me a hand here, I have purchased a QNAP TS-412 with 2x 2TB Hitachi HDS723020BLA642MN6O.
I have run the installation and have gotten to the stage where I can view my server (name Raccoon) in QNAP Finder, however under ‘Firmware Status’ it says (update available), I download the firmware 3.7.1. update and install it however it continues to display it as Version 3.4.4 (0718T). It also states on the official compatibility HDD site (from QNAP website) that for my model HDD; stated above, “Please update the NAS firmware to V3.4.4 and NVR firmware to V3.5.2 for enhanced compatibility with this hard drive model.” Does this mean I’m meant to keep it at that version or should I update it to the most current?
I have also checked my router settings and it is allowing the IP through (192.168.0.23) without restrictions, im running my computer, ps3 and boxee box all through a WD power-line adapter so I don’t believe that would be causing the problem :S
On the NAS unit I have a solid Green LED for ‘Status’- The NAS is ready. and a Solid Orange LED for ‘LAN’ – “The disk data is being accessed and a read/write error occurs during the process.”

Now when I double click on the server in the QNAP Finder it only partially loads up the configuration page. When in actual fact it should be loading up my administration options ect. As I have already configured the unit during my first installation in which the page loaded fine.

Little lost here guys so any suggestions of feedback will be appreciated

You should contact the manufacturer for further assistance. Sounds like the firmware upgrade didn't work fully.
