    I've got a 1st gen Timecapsule and it just died on me...BOO

    so it was working fine, and I wanted to go into the configuration to change from a 5ghz N network to a 2.4ghz N so I could connect my iphone and ipad.

    Apparently I haven't updated the firmware in a year or two, so it prompted me to update. After I updated the time capsule it died. It powers on but then the hard drive makes a whiirrrrr and then the system shuts down.

    very annoying because it was running fine before this, no sign of any issues. Obviously I am out of my warranty, but just wondering if this could be as a result of the firmware update, and if so, how do I go about rolling it back.


    Thanks

    In general they just don't last that long, at least I'm my experience.

    I'm on my third :)

    Numerous amounts of updates built up over time can over whelm a hard disk, it happened to me one time but not with a time capsule.
