Thanks, I've read the wiki and the other LED guides. HC isn't an issue because the unit has not been modified. I purchased it with the drives pre-installed.

It's obvious it's stuck somewhere in the boot process and booting it with a new image doesn't help. Is there anything else I can try?

Have you tried a factory defaults boot? (warning: erases all data)

That post is almost a year old, so they probably already got somewhere with it.

And yet we still do not have a description of DUO LED patterns anywhere that I can find.
is there a list somewhere?

Until I post the FAQ, here is the info for reference:
Code: Select all
LED blink behavior for 2 disk systems is three quick blinks of all disk LEDs and the backup LED, followed by an 1s delay, followed by a number of slow blinks.  The number of slow blinks will be the error code.

Current error codes:
1  - Vendor mismatch
2  - No disks detected
3  - Bad contents on root partition of disks
4  - Flash error
5  - Unsupported RAID configuration

I have a problem with my DUO. I changed the RAM to 512 MB Module and now after I power on the device, disk leds are blinking: disk1 led is solid for 1s and then disk2 led is solid for 1s (disk1 led is of). Power led is off. I don't know what it means :( I've contacted the Netgear phone support, but they told me to wait and see how long it would last... :|

It's probably an incompatible memory.

I am sure that there is an expiration date on some of the FAQ and User Submitted Tips. In other words, some of them are just workarounds, which get fixed with a subsequent firm ware update.

It would be nice if there was a note on the FAQ and Tips saying that the workaround is no longer needed, or something to that effect.

Like I am looking at this security tip. Is that still needed with the latest RAIDiator?
