1. I tried that connector... nothing I have an Sbus Turbo XGX that I 
was trying first.
2. None see above.
3. As far as I know... It beeps on power on... and I get 1 or 2 flashes 
of caps lock as the drive heaves to and sounds like it is booting an OS
4. Nope

This is the first time I've turned this unit on.. It came from Sam... 
Sam if you know what the status of this unit was when you last used it, 
let me know.
