I've been using my NSLU2 since early this year without any problems. Even the upgrade to R63 went without a hitch. I just encounted my first snag this morning and it's a pretty major one. Was playing some MP3s off of my NSLU2 using Windows Media Player and suddenly the MP3s stopped playing. Tried to access the drive through explorer and it said the mapped drive was no longer available. Tried to access the NSLU2 via web browser and it was not responding. Took a look at the NSLU2 itself and all of the LEDs were lit. Tried to restart the unit by holding down the power button and it would not restart. I unplugged the unit and the drive and then powered both back up. Looked at the status of the disk via the web browser and it said that no disk was installed. Tried rebooting several times but the connected hard drive was never seen. So I installed the EXT2/EXT3 IFS for Windows ( http://www.fs-driver.org/ ) to gain access to my files that way. Connected the USB drive to my PC and three Linux partitions were available. I mapped a drive letter to the largest partition and tried to view my files through explorer and it says the drive is not formatted. So...... to sum things up, I think the file system on the drive is screwed. I'm not familiar with Linux... is there anything I can do to repair the file system and gain access to my files? Or any utility I can run that will give me insight on what is going on? I'd like to get my files off and then format and run a thorough scandisk.
