My MSSII 500 Gb just finished! Clicking.. and clicking. After 3 years work.
So, could anyone tell me how to replace this disk!?
On a forum I did found an easy way to replace the MSSI disk.
Is there an easy way to replace this HD ?
I hope anyone can help me.
I did succeed in carefully opening the case, so I'm able to replace it. But how to let it work?

Thanks EasyUser !
I did know already this link.
It is far to complicated, and not easy to understand,
anyway.... for me!
OK, I do have Knoppix 6.2, I'll study again this link!
Is'nt there a more easy way to go?

Unfortunately, there is no easier way to do that. I did once following this instruction, it is easier than you think. If you run into any problem, post back and I might be able to help you out. External dock will make it a bit easier.

Sofar, I did succeed in replacing the disk YES!
I did format a new 1TB disk with an external Hama SATA Docking Station (!) - with PartitionMagic 8.0 to
(The "x" represents "a", "b", or .... etc. - for me it was /dev/sdd1 and /dev/sdd2)
/dev/sdx1 258,8 Mb ext3 *boot
/dev/sdx2 258,9 Mb ext3
/dev/sdx3 258,9 Mb swap
/dev/sdx5 517,8 Mb ext3
/dev/sdx6 rest-of-the-disk ext3
Then I did mount the original image edamame.3.5.74.img with Knoppix 6.2 Bootable DVD
(You can download the latest image from Seagate, first you have to extract it in Linux, or with Knoppix Live-DVD)
These are the commands to mount:
(The "x" represents "a", "b", or .... etc. - for me it was /dev/sdd1 and /dev/sdd2; choose carefully the disk)
(And be sure to start in the directory with the image in it)
dd if=edamame.3.5.74.img of=/dev/sdx1 bs=1024k
dd if=edamame.3.5.74.img of=/dev/sdx2 bs=1024k
Replaced the old-disk and powered-up.
And I did reset the Unit
All lights green
Did set my PC to automatic DHCP
Find the IP adress
Did setup the Web page; network-settings also..
reset my PC to manually etc....
All works fine, updated MSSII to 1 Tb !
It seems not yet possible to see the files in the folders in Central-Axis; I can login correctly.
OK, there has been a change, because my newly MSSII has few data on it yet.
Passwords etc. correctly....
After opening the first folder - "Alfredo" or the "Public" one -
Connecting. Please wait.......
This should take about 3 seconds.
And I still have to wait......
What is left to be done ?
I hope you can tell me
Update 21-05-2010: Solved !
