I'll look into these (I may need to find such CUE/BIN dumps though for testing). I've seen similar issues before but they should have been sorted. For the audio issue I'm probably just missing a bit flag on an audio command I wasn't expecting or something 😊

Edit: I can reproduce the issue, though it'll be a few days to get you a fix as my debug cable broke during reproduction of the issue!

No worries, thanks for the update!

I just received an IDE CD/DVD drive Simulator.

So far it works great.

I'm still learning how to interact with it, the most trouble I had was figuring out the right device driver in Windows for setting up a local COM virtual port to communiciate with it. It took some time, but was successful. I have the PuTTY command window open now and have played around with the command set.

I'm not quite sure how scripting works.. or whether its of use in my use case, but it is interesting.

I am interested in capturing the IDE bus commands from a DVD Burner situation in a very old DVD recorder and saving a burn session to a file on a USB drive or the SD flash card.

To do that I think I need to collect data and submit that to the developer, so future versions of the firmware will support the IDE bus commands and responses a DVD burner would make or expect.

Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated!

Wow, thanks for the very fast response ! I actually pm-ed you regarding the image group idea because I believe that might feasible at low cost and wanted to be sure you saw that . What are your thoughts on this idea ?

Apparently I can't reply here yet anyway, I must have posted too little 😊 I think there might be something possible there, there's no exposed GPIO on the board itself but I could add a mode for one of the USB ports perhaps, I could maybe get three pushbuttons on one of the USB ports if I fiddle around with detecting the pins that are normally dedicated to USB.

I am very interested in this ! If you do end up adding some buttons and a display, a case with a 3.5 mounting bracket would be next. I am sure I will end up being a customer soon. Please keep it up!

Just wanted to mention you can simulate the Tattie ATAPI Simulator “no stop” issue pretty easily with the Windows CD Player in Windows 98. Pressing stop or pause has no effect. Hope that helps!
