Re: 40-Pin Cf Compact Flash Card To 3.5 Ide Converter - PC wont get past Detecting Drives

Thanks for your input. I'm booting Win 2000 SP4 setup CD so that should support LBA-mode, right? The IDE is a Maxtor 40 GB UDMA-6/ATA133 device, so also much newer than the rest of the platform. For the CF card, it's a Transcend TS32GCF133 32 GB. The 8 GB version TS8GCF133 showed the same behaviour. …

Re: 40-Pin Cf Compact Flash Card To 3.5 Ide Converter - PC wont get past Detecting Drives

I also have compatibility issues with my Transcend 8 GB and 32 GB CF cards. On Win 98 they seem to work, but some apps crash randomly and Win 2000 setup dies instantly with BSOD immediately after loading. Real IDE HDD works fine. I've read somewhere that newer CF cards might not implement legacy IO …

Re: Issue with Hercules S3 Trio3D

Well, I couldn't find anything online about this. Since it shows up in VGA BIOS on startup, I wouldn't expect a wrong BIOS flash for example. It could still be a driver issue, that either a certain amount of memory is reserved for something else or it is the wrong driver.

Re: SIlly question about Voodoo 2

Personally, I'd go with the Matrox because that's the one I had :D Regarding your Direct3D question: before creating the D3D device, the game can query the available devices. So if the game is smart enough, they offer the option to select the device. Otherwise the game will use the default device. …

Re: No PCI device listing on boot, only 2 devices when I scan the PCI bus. Devices work fine though. Help?

From what I've seen, there is a way to check which operation is supported on the hardware. AX=0xB101 int 0x1A bool isPciBios = (AH == 0) && (DX == 0x4350) int numBus = CL int pciVersion = BX int configVer = AL Those are probably the BIOS functions you are using, right? Otherwise, the 0xCF8/0xCFC …

Re: No PCI device listing on boot, only 2 devices when I scan the PCI bus. Devices work fine though. Help?

Is PnP/PCI configuration set to Auto? I'm actually not sure if that BIOS would list the PCI devices. On my SS7 with AMI BIOS (and an S7 with Award) it is shown after the boxed table and before "Verifying DMI Pool Data" (text is PCI device listing). Besides having no listings, do the PCI devices work …

Re: Issue with Hercules S3 Trio3D

Since you are using Windows, I would disable the following options: System BIOS Cacheable Video BIOS Cacheable Video RAM Cacheable Video BIOS Shadow I don't think this is directly related but those settings are leftovers from ancient days and might cause trouble. You do seem to have a slight …
