SCSI Upgrades
Setup Setup v1.80 11/5/02
!Setup is Castle Technology's general SCSI and SCSI disc management software. It now includes support for the RiscOS 4 large directories and long filenames. It includes the latest versions of soft loadable SCSI modules. 

Rom Update Rupdate v3.19 with SCSIHandler v3.19 11/5/02 + SCSI2_CT v1.34 10/1/01
!Rupdate loads the current Flash Rom Image into the Storm SCSI32 card.  

WhichSCSI WhichSCSI v3.19 11/5/02
!WhichSCSI is Castle Technology's general runtime SCSI module update software. It includes the latest versions of soft loadable SCSI modules:

The latest SCSIHandler update resolves sone issues with !CDBurn autodetecting yamaha CD Burners. Other SCSIHandler updates are minor tweaks to resolve some freezes seen occasionally on some RiscOS 4 machines. Note that for best results a return to base update of the PAL code on the Storm32 SCSI card is also recommended. There will be a small charge for this update of 15ukp plus vat, which mainly covers the carriage and packing and insurance charges. If you wish to have this mod you will have a Storm32 card, and will have experienced read freezes whilst filercopying data in RiscOS 4 with Lazy task swapping enabled.

The SCSIFiler mods add RiscOS 4 Drag'n'drop filesave. Dragging a file to a SCSI icon will save it in the root of that icon's disc, or elsewhere if the variable SCSI$DefaultPath is set.

n.b. See the !Help file within !WhichSCSI for guidance in running !WhichSCSI as part of your boot sequence.
Both !Setup & !WhichSCSI check the installed SCSI card to ensure that the latest versions of any relevant SCSI modules are softloaded into the computer.

Scanners & ASPI Drivers
Those wishing to use PC software to drive SCSI scanners will require ASPI drivers and !PCPro version 2.03 or later. Both of these can be obtained from Aleph1. Current ASPI Drivers can be downloaded from their web site, or obtained from us. Existing owners of !PCPro can upgrade from their web site, but new owners should contact Aleph1 Sales directly.

These ASPI drivers can be persuaded to function under both Win95 & Win3.1. Note however that the transfer buffer currently provided (16k bytes max) will fit just one 600dpi A4 width 24 bit colour scan line at a time. 600IISP Mustek scanners are not happy transferring less than 2 lines at a time. Thus if you wish to scan 24 bit colour, on your PC card, at full width, the max dpi you can successfully scan at is 320. Any dpi larger than this will provide a lockout until you switch off the scanner.
