IDE info, if not mistaken, should be reported directly from the drive, status?? you mean like the 0xFF code the drive reports? Will get back with yall on this, its where I'm at with FPOS, as soon as I find a new place.The sources are on my tower that ATM I dont have access to. I dont know C very well, but have a few links to port the code pretty much intact.I'm doing the reverse from obj C to obj P/Delphi with no issues yet.2009/5/8 Rob Judd <haiqu@xxxxxxxxxx>:Are we going to get replacements for ideinfo and idestatus at all?My understanding is that there is going to be a different mechanism for seeing this information
