« on: January 11, 2008, 06:13:28 PM »
ELBOX COMPUTER has released today the NEW drivers for FastATA 1200 MK-III controllers. New software is available free of charge for all registered users of FastATA 1200 MK-III controllers.

The update includes:
• ATA3.driver ver.8.8
• ATA3Prefs ver.8.6
• AllegroCDFS ver.3.5

ATA3.driver ver.8.8
- support of PIO3, PIO4 and PIO5 modes under OS4 added
- autobooting from CD enabled

ATA3Prefs ver.8.6
- NOSPLIT mode as a default
- RESIDENT mode as a default

If you own an older FastATA controller (Lite, MK-I, GOLD or MK-II) and you are resident of the European Union, you can upgrade it now with the newest FastATA 1200 MK-III in the FastATA Trade-Up Program receiving 40 EUR mail-in rebate.

If you want to take advantage of the IDE Trade-Up Program but you are not an EU resident, contact Elbox Sales Department for a customised offer.

I know what you mean.  I registered my Power Flyer Gold years ago and never got a single email for obtaining the updates despite the fact that I registered it.  The last thing I want to do is remove it from the A1200 in order to check the serial number (which some bright spark decided to place in a position which puts it face down against the A1200 mobo) as I'll need to remove my scan doubler and the Flyer and then risk damaging my motherboard by reattaching it while the A1200 mobo is suspended in the tower (which results in some nasty flexing).

I don't suppose Elbox have some sort of utility which reads an unique ID from the Flyer hardware which I can use instead?

email Elbox with your chip numbers and serial numbers (normally on the board on a sticker). If you don't have all the info. to give them, tell them what you can.
My Mediators number was a bit iffy due to a couple of missing/faded digits but Elbox sent me the drivers without any fuss anyway.
