Can not select/save download location

Unread post by Xsempre » Sat Nov 08, 2014 12:18 am

I had Download Station up and running on my DS211J when it was still DSM 4.2. Even with the chrome and android apps: it worked like a charm.
One day (long time ago) it stopped working.

In DSM I stopped the process, removed the package, reinstalled the package.
When I start Download Station, it says: "Please select the destination folder first" and offers me a little folder browser. However, when I select a folder (or even create a new one for that matter) and hit the "select"-button it says "Failed to finish the requested operation."
Same thing if (still in Download Station) I go to Settings > Location > Default Destination Folder > Select

I removed the Download Station package again. I upgraded to DSM 4.3 (3827-latest version).
Reinstalled the package. Same problem persists. :?

Other functionalities (I don't use many though) seem to work just fine.

Can someone help me to fix this? Thx!

By the way, I prefer not to upgrade to dsm 5.x. The 211j is rather low end, and I'm afraid performance will degrade drastically...

Oh, and just to be clear: because I can not select/save a download location, Download Station isn't working at all. :cry:

I have this exact same problem. Did you manage to solve this?

I'm afraid not.
And to be honest: I expected a bit more help from the Synology community.
Dissapointed ...

Same Synology model (211j / dsm 4.x)?
I guess upgrading to dsm 5.x would solve the problem.
But I also am very afraid that the specs of the 211j can't handle the latest firmware.
Are you game to give that a try?

I have the same problem on my DS115 with DSM 6.2-23739 Update 2
The same exact issue he described up there.
Has this been resolved???

I can no longer install it.

It was removed automatically from my NAS (DS713) and I suspect synology have something to do with this as I am still unable to re-download and install it again.

If they have bowed to public pressure then this NAS is of no use to be now, ill build my own freenas box,.
