Mr. R. Loew is not going to be happy his $10 "shareware" driver now has better freeware competition.
I can't test it either, all my drives are < or = to 120 GB.
Which ESDI_506.PDR version did you use, 4.10.2225 or 4.10.2226 ?
Best to use 4.10.2225 because this is the most compatible and up to date.
No matter which version you used, file version should be changed to reflect the update and to install properly over any other older version that might exist in %windir%\system\iosubsys .
Your new driver should have 4.10.2227 [1 notch above the newest one by M$].
I have created an iexpress installer with backup [original file (if any) renamed to ESDI_506.ORI], uninstall + restore [original file (if any) restored from ESDI_506.ORI back to ESDI_506.PDR] Control Panel Add/Remove Programs capabilities.
I took the liberty and changed file version to 4.10.2227 using XVI32 [freeware hex editor]:
I also took the liberty and added the links to your 2 forums into the README.TXT:
README.TXT opens for reading whenever one installs the driver.
