ATAINF - Version 1.3 (11/29/96)ATAINF is a program I wrote to find the parameters and capabilities of ATA, ATAPI and SCSI drives. ATA drives are more commonly known as IDE or EIDE hard drives, and ATAPI are more commonly known as IDE versions of CDROM drives. There were only a couple of programs out there that would dump some of the parameters of IDE hard drives, but they had no support for CDROM and most of the time they did not follow the ATA specs. ATAINF now supports ATAPI drives under Win95/98 through the ASPI drivers, and also supports ATAPI drives through ATASPI drivers.

CDDA - Version 1.7 (build 0x0194) (01/24/97)CDDA is a DOS PC based utility that allows the user to extract digitally perfect copies of samples from audio CDs. It also allows the user to extract MPEG streams from CDi Digital Video CDs, and VideoCDs, and XA frames from CD-XA CDs. Version 1.7 now supports SCSI drives with ASPI drivers, ATAPI drives with ATASPI drivers, ATAPI drives with ASPI drivers under Win95/98, ATAPI drives with native mode drivers, and most other drives through the MSCDEX drivers.

CDGPLAY - Version 1.2 (12/10/01)CDGPLAY is a DOS command line program to play audio CDs and display any CD+G graphics and text that are encoded on the CD. It presently supports Sony/Plextor/Pioneer SCSI CDROM drives with ASPI drivers. It also now supports many ATAPI drives through the Win95/98 ASPI drivers or ATASPI drivers.

CD+G Authoring Library - Version 0.3 (12/10/01)CDG authoring library is a collection of routines developed to help create a CD+G authoring package. The library is made up of a DLL and a demonstration test program. The source to the test program is included. The software is developed under VC5.
CDROMCHK - Version 0.1 (06/10/96)CDROMCHK is a DOS command line utility written to run in a DOS window under Windows 95/98. It was written specifically to test ATAPI drives for the Oak Chipset Bug. This bug causes samples to be randomly corrupted when reading digital audio.

CDROMINF - Version 1.2 (11/29/96);CDROMINF is a DOS command line program to display information about the installed CDROM drives, the MSCDEX driver, and any CD or CDROM discs loaded in the drive. It supports both IDE (ATAPI) and SCSI CDROM drives. It now also detects ATASPI drivers under DOS.

DAT2WAV - Version 1.2 (1/10/02)DAT2WAV is a program that will allow you to read the digital audio directly from a DAT (digital audio tape) in a drive installed in a PC. The big trick to getting this to work in having the right drive. Most DAT drives for computers do not support reading the audio data.

SPINDOWN - Version 1.2 (11/29/96)SPINDOWN is a DOS command line program to change the spindown (or timeout) time for IDE (ATAPI)/SCSI CDROM drives. Many drives come with very short default spindown times, and many applications incur additional delays when waiting for the drive to spinup for CD accesses. SPINDOWN now supports ATAPI drives under Windows 95/98 with ASPI drivers, and also supports ATAPI drives under DOS with ATASPI drivers!

WAVDUMP - Version 1.0 (11/29/96)WAVDUMP is a DOS command line utility that will dump the header contents of a WAV file, then check the remainder of the file to make sure that the contents of the data matches the header.
