Can I flash a USB 3540A

I purchased a bytec (enclosed) external USB 2 NEC 3540A w/ 1.01 firmware.

I downloaded the 1.03 firmware from the NEC site, it however specifically warns against flashing USB models, recommending that you go to your vender.

Is the concern real or is it okay to flash the drives firmware, when I launch the flash utility it sees the drive, I just have been reluctant to push the “flash” button, I don’t want a paperweight.



I have an external USB 3540 drive myself. This drive can be flashed with succes, so no problems overhere flashing the USB drive.
