3540A activity led

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.


maybe one of the other firmwares from I O data or mad doog would work ok…or maybe the firmware modders liggy& dee could fix it?PLEASE Thanks for your help

The problem/“feature” :a of NEC’s LED has been discussed in this thread:

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

i had trouble with a sony drive doing the same thing…i loaded one of code kings firmwares and it fixed it…thanks for info everyone.

ok i modded the cable…cut wire 39 at the mb plug…all is good now :bigsmile: :bigsmile:
