Conner provided me with a firmware upgrade disk. The new firware
could by applied to the drive at any PC that has MS-DOS and ASPI drivers.

I don't know Conner's tech support address in the US, but in Europe you
can contact:

Fax for Tech Support: +44-1294-315262
Mailbox: +44-1294-315265
FaxBack: +44-1294-315205


Conner Peripherals (UK) Ltd.
European Technical Support
1 Cockburn Place
Riverside Business Park
Oldhall West
Irvine KA11 5DA
Scotland, UK

When you write a letter to them you have to give them a fax number, since
they don't answer by letter, just by fax or by phone.
