as tittle wots the best official firmware for the 3540?
The one that came with your drive. =P
so your saying 1.01 is the latest official frimware
There are 3 versions of 1.01 with different dates 27/4/05 being the latest one
when are nec going to release newer firmware for the 3540?
I have some DAXON AZ3 +R and 016S -R , it isn't supported by NEC yet
Nec never liked factories from Taiwan.. just remember how long it took before they added support for Ritek D01. =)
Impossible to say. The only thing I know for sure is that firmwarereleases from NEC take eons.
