    Got a D2 Quadra drive from t'Apple Store in Brum, UK and only opened it today as a gift. Nice. BUT apart from its loud fan (ahem) I have two major probs with it. Or could it be just me, readers?

    Ok then:
    Problem 1: Where is the Shortcut Button software on the supplied disc? I cant see it ... should it self install in Settings or summat? Im stumped.

    Problem 2: I leave it on Auto setting... its stays on .. until the PC powers back up.... then it stays off .. whats happening?. This unit runs out of its 4 week warranty in about 3 days so I gorra work fast!.

    There you are then. When does the Auto setting work? Wheres this alleged Shortcut/Activity button software then? :mad:

    I think we should be told!


    Cheers y'all!
