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!
