if you happen to have FireWire storage devices (i dont) please read on:
While creating the newest installment of my DOS emergency boot CD i stumbled upon 2 driver disks for FireWire 1394 storage devices, one being the among USB fans famous DAToptic package and the lesser known Iomega solution.
The ASPI standard consists of 2 config.sys devices, the hardware driver (i.e. aspi2dos.sys) and the allocator (i.e. aspicd.sys), wich to my knowledge can be mixed between vendors.
So while looking at the drivers with a text editor (im not a hacker) it seems that each company supports only its own devices, but each on a different part of the 2 drivers!
- sbp2aspi.sys <- "SUPPORT LIST" indicated properitary solution
- nj32disk.sys <- works fine with generic usb
- aspi1394.sys <- seems to be clean
- guest.exe <-
again, a support listNot! See last post
Any of you tried mixing? (probably not) Want to try now? (please do)
I know im wasting too much effort on an exotic interface, though Mac people might want to disagree.
Eagerly waiting for feedback,
PS: If this is the wrong place for so technical questions, please refer me to a better one.
