I just got my ND-3540A and am curious as to whether or not disabling an attached slave drive is really necessary as suggested in NEC’s own firmware flashing instructions found here: http://support.necsam.com/OEM/downloads/FlashFirmware/readme.asp?ID=7
This suggestion sounds a bit obsurd to me as I’ve never heard of this being necessary for drives of other manufacturers (i.e. LiteON, Plextor, etc…). For all of those who have already flashed their NEC drive in the past, can you clarify whether or not this step is actually necessary or is it completely redundant? Thanks in advance.
