Thanks for all your replies, I also had a e-mail from NEC (see below) Question- If the the "G" does not have any significance., why put it there in the first place. that just mixes people up.
but i must add that (Mark Hallsworth at NEC Data Storage Support) gave me a very quick reply which i thank him for. other companies take note.
Question for "Bigmike7" why is it that when i clicked on your link in your post, up came that horrible "Crazy Frog" and tried to automatically download something to my computer, which my anti-virus picked up as a virus and intercepted and destroyed. then and only then i was directed to you webpage.
ps: it only did that the first time i clicked on it.
Now i will try LD V2.TD (Liggy & Dee NEC ND-3500 firmware) as they sound reliable. or as a last resort i can use the NEC v2.19.
thanks again people
The 2.19 firmware is for the ND-3500A(G). Your drive is an ND-3500A the "G" does not have any significance.
