Version 2.14 of the IECHost GUI client is now available within my Software page. Before you crack on with disk imaging, be reminded that this version requires a firmware update in order to use custom disk name and ID to format disks using “Format II” routines (fast format).
A video that illustrates how to do a firmware update is available on YouTube:
Over the weekend I stumbled over what I’d refer to as an incomplete implementation of the logic within the IECHost GUI client when sector retry attempts are exhausted for a track.
The consequence of this bug is that in presence of tracks with lots of errors, a track change would have been missed by the GUI.
Version 2.13 of the client is now available within my Software page.
Please be advised that a number of features in the recently introduced Tools menu require a firmware update, which can be performed through either client software once the device and bootloader ports are both discovered correctly, as per IECHost manual.
Version 2.2-beta of the IECHost GUI client was published within my Software page. This version includes, among other changes, a rewrite of the software layers used to communicate with IECHost devices, which simplifies multi-OS support and maintenance cycles for myself. Therefore, version 2.x is the only one I will be maintaining moving forward.
