I am trying to set up an NSA210 that was given to me new a few years ago but I haven'y got round to doing anything with it until now. I have unboxed it and plugged in all the relevant cables along with a new HDD (Seagate Barracuda) and have put in the supplied disk. I can get so far along with the setup but a) it eventually tells me that the firmware is invalid and b) there is no disk (in spite of the fact that the HDD light is on the front. The firmware that it shows is v4.10(AFD.0).
I'm not a computer expert so any help in fairly plain language would help, please.

    Checked official FTP, the latest firmware of NSA221 is V4.41(AFD.0)C0.

    If you put a new HDD into NSA210, you need to create a volume in the system.
    You can refer to user's guide on chapter 4.2. You can find it in this attachment.

    Thank you, Penny. I'll try this - or, rather, I'll get someone who knows what he's doing to try it. However, many thanks for your help.

    In addition, when I go to the firmware link, I get three files and I'm not sure what to do from there...

    I'm still getting "Invalid firmware". Is it Windows 10 and an unsupported product?

    Has any screenshots?
    Can you share your steps?

    Thanks. I'll get back on this one when I can get some help.
