[QUOTE=DrageMester;2031792]The NEC ND-3500AG supports ProdiscF02 media in the latest 2.1B firmware (maybe even earlier).
You can either download the official 2.1B firmware with a firmware flasher included (but which I can’t find a working link to right now) and just run the firmware flasher, or you can do the following:
Download the Liggy’s 3500 bitsetting firmware 2.1b from here and extract the 21bbt_orig.bin file.
Download the Binflash (Win32 GUI) firmware flasher a.k.a. NECWinFlash from here and extract the NECWinFlash.exe executable file.
Run NECWinFlash, select your NEC ND-3500AG drive, press the Flash button, select the 21bbt_orig.bin file, and the drive will be flashed to new firmware.
Reboot your computer.
DISCLAIMER: There is always a small risk that something goes wrong when flashing firmware and you will have to take responsibility for that risk yourself![/QUOTE]
WOW! That is scary for me to go into. I shall keep this info etc. in the event I feel brave enough. (IF) Thank you.
My other alternative, order the disks of my choice (verbs for practice and other uses, TY Watershields for important projects) and if they both work, let it go as such. I just hope they are still around and don’t upgrade to a nonworking format.
I had already used the TY Watershield and Verb DataLifePlus with no problem so will order them again. The Verbs are printables, that is why I was wanting the Maxells (Nonprintables) for my unimportant cheaper to use ones.
