when ever the light on the 3540A is lit the hd activity light in the computer case lights up…is this normal?..never seen any drives do this before.

if you search you will find others have said the same thing for the 35x0 series

not the answer i wanted hear …but Thank You at least i know theres nothing wrong with it…just very strange if you are reading disk.

Yes it is normal. I hope NEC fixes this with a firmware update.

Regards!

You can find a lot of answers there. As always be careful if you try anything.
