Generate an "Original" Synology USB Key

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I would like to generate an "Original" Synology USB Key.


the first thing i did was:


root@diskstation:~# lsusb -ciu   
|__usb1          1d6b:0002:0310 09  2.00  480MBit/s 0mA 1IF  (xhci_hcd 0000:00:14.0) hub
  |__1-5         f400:f400:0100 00  2.00  480MBit/s 200mA 1IF  (Synology DiskStation xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)
  1-5:1.0         (IF) 08:06:50 2EPs () usb-storage host3 (synoboot)

how do i find out what "usb key" chipset synology is using ?


the original pid/vid/version of Synology seems to be f400:f400:0100 , no matter what kind of diskstation/rackstation you have.


anyone know how to change pid/vid/registration of an USB key ?


the best would be buying an usb key that have the same chipset and size as Synology original.


another question, i replaced part of the line in the output with xxxxxxxx as i do not know if that part means anything, any of you know what it means ?


Kind Regards,

Lars Christian Thasenhod

i had the same question sometime ago, and there are usb sticks from a-data that can be modified to Synology's PID VID F400 valleus.

I have tested this aswell, and can confirm it works as a replacement of the original internal synology usb flash drive.

If you have more questions you can ask me.. ;)


take a look at this topic, more details are explaned here
