Castle USB stack tweaked for beta updateBy Chris Williams. Published: 25th Jun 2005, 16:46:50 | Permalink | Printable
Licence to mass-storageCastle have published another USB update for Iyonix users to beta test this weekend. Version 0.07 of SCSISoftUSB will now attempt to support a larger range of USB based storage devices, including gadgets such as the Sony Ericsson K750i mobile phone. Specifically, the module will try to talk to any device that identifies itself as a mass storage gadget, rather than just SCSI-like and SFF based devices as it did previously.
According to Castle, devices such mini-iPod MP3 players should now also "stall" less often during a transfer. Additionally, a short delay has been introduced into the software when a device is plugged into an Iyonix to prevent the software stack from attempting to access the storage gadget too early and causing further problems.
Castle say the update has been "well tested" internally and it's hoped version 0.07 will be officially released once it is considered stable.
