Getting that way. Ok found some firware updates for the Diamond Data drives
that are 32x or greater.
What's the firmware revision on your Working Diamond Data drive?
The current 36X diamond data firmware revision is 636A-323 T6HP
I'll download the lastest for the other drives and test'em out.
Ahhh...just got a HTTP 404 error for one of the firware update links!!!!
Oh well I'll try the 32x update and see how that goes.
