I just bought a japanese Buffalo LinkStation HD-HG300LAN (HD/LAN).
Problem is, my WinXP is in english... and I think the IP configuration software and firmware are not working correctly because of character set or something.
So, I was wondering if there was a way to replace the firmware with the english version.
Buffalo's US homepage is somewhat down. UK and Australia only have pdf manuals for download.
I even got a supposedly extra-official Buffalo-US ftp, but it seems to be down... or at least, not accepting login/pass provided for clients.
However, I'm not sure this is enought to make it work, because you should install the CD software of the linkstation on you computer to connect whith the linkstation. These softwares should be in Japanese I guess...
