All Ataris, the Milan040/060, the Suska board and MIST.
Atari SH/Megafile, SCSI, IDE and ATAPI drives, SATA devices with IDE-to-SATA adapter, removable media drives, SSDs, memory cards.
Drives of any capacity. SCSI drives with a capacity > 1 GiB connected to the ACSI bus require a suitable host adapter to use their full capacity, e.g. an adapter by
Inventronik, an ICD Link or a LINK96/97. The GigaFile SD card drive by
Inventronik and the UltraSatan SD card drive by Lotharek (latest firmware required). 8 configurable sub-units (LUNs) per SCSI/ACSI device.
Up to 8 IDE/SATA devices (2 with Falcon IDE or the
Thunder IDE interface for the TT, 4 with Milan IDE or the MonSTer board, 8 with The Doubler). Automatic detection of ACSI hardware (e.g. ICD-compatible host adapter, GigaFile or UltraSatan) that supports high capacity media.
With many optical drives DVD-RAM, DVD+RW and BD-RE media can be used like regular removable media, e.g. for backups.
With TOS 16 (A:-P:), with MagiC 25 (A:-Z: except U:), with MiNT or
Big-DOS 31 (A:-Z: except U:, 1:-6:) drives. Partition sizes of up to 1 GiB (2 GiB with Big-DOS), depending on the TOS version (see
FAQ for details). With MagiC or MiNT access to VFAT and FAT32 partitions (long filenames, virtually unlimited partition size).
With MiNT access to Linux partitions (EXT2).
Windows (Windows XP and newer) compatible partitioning (including FAT32)
with the Atari.
TOS/Windows compatible partitioning for
exchanging data with PCs and Macs without any additional software. Automatic detection of byteswapped media.
Device and Media Maintenance
Formatting and partitioning
Editing of partition parameters, e.g. partition IDs
Initialization of individual partitions
Loading and saving of complete drive or partition data (image files).
Complete or partial copying of media, e.g. for cloning, backup or for exchanging data.
Recovery of partition table in case the root sector was corrupted.
Configuration settings of SCSI, ATAPI and SATA devices can be changed, e.g. the cache settings.
Triggering of self-tests for devices supporting this feature.
Easy and quick installation, all existing data are preserved.
Modern user interface. No need for additional AUTO folder programs like FOLDRxxx or CACHExxx.
Automatic and reliable media change detection (hot-swap).
Configurable number of drive IDs to be reserved on removable media/memory cards.
Boot drive selection (AUTO folder and ACCs) by simply pressing a key.
Write protection for selected drives and for boot and root sectors.
Auto-Sleep, Auto-Park and password protection for ZIP and JAZ drives.
Configurable device and partition order, configurable LUN support.
With MagiC non-blocking SCSI and ACSI data transfers: Applications keep
on running while data are being transferred in the background.
Special operation modes for extra fast data transfers with ACSI and IDE.
SCSI emulation/translation for IDE, ATAPI and SATA devices.
Can be booted into Alternate RAM (TT-RAM), in particular to increase the IDE transfer rate.
For maximum speed and compact code HDDRIVER is coded in pure 68000 and 68030 assembler.
The HDDRIVER software package includes numerous useful
tools. All programs are bilingual (English and German).
