With the promise of a new NEC 3500 firmware coming in the new future I would like to get feed back from some of you with more experience and find out where those of us with OEM non NEC supported drives (all of North America) would plan to get official NEC firmware when this improved version comes out? I know there is an EU site and I know that all NEC 3500 drives are supposed to be the same but I have direct communication from NEC US OEM support that says European firmware has fried drives in the past. They have no axe to grind since I can’t buy a retail drive if I wanted to.
Many of us do not need to go the hacked firmware route. Just tonight Herrie’s is down until further notice so counting on hackers is not always possible.
Thanks in advance.
