Great! I have 2 IDEs waiting to test. I´m told that this interface allows only 5 32Mb partitions. but it´s not a problem, our goal is to make it capable of read MS-DOS partitions, so you can plug it to a MSX or a PC.

I had a quick chat with Egor this morning, he'll hopefully have the hdprep software up and running this weekend.
The interface uses its own partition info - so as to keep it as small as possible and not waste space ons code, thus for the interface to use a hdd compatible with msdos the partitioninfo part of the bios will have to be modified (should not be such a problem)

Also I think it wil be best if the bios is updated to LBA access mode, it currently works with CHS.

News from Egor:

He sure is still alive and offered to recode hdprep for the interface. Ha said he lost a hdd with msx stuff (stolen) but still has a lot on his pc. I do not think he is active in msx??
Does anybody know him well? I have his ICQ number if you want to chat?
