LaCie Ethernet Disk Mini Firmware Rollback

If you are ever in need to rollback the firmware on your LaCie Ethernet Disk Mini. Here is how to do it...

There are two ways to reset this unit to its default settings:

Web browser method
-Go to the Configuration page in the Web Admin
-Click on the blue button next to Updates
-On the next page, click on the blue button next to Updates Log.
-Click on the "Remove all the updates" link on the bottom-right of the page.

The product should now be reset to its factory default settings.

Hardware method
-When pushing the power button to switch the drive ON, keep holding the power button until the blue LED of the power button starts to flicker and then release the button.
-Then, after 1 or 2 seconds the button's LED should flicker with another rhythm.
-Push the button again. After a few seconds, the LED will flicker again but with a third different rhythm. Release the button.
-If the drive turns off then the power button was held in two long during the last step, please try again if the drive powers off.

The product should now be reset to its factory default settings.

Thanks to Jeff from LaCie's tech support for the info.

I had to rollback because of compatibility problems with the UPnP-AV media server and the latest firmware for my D-Link DSM-520 MediaLounge.
