Device Driver and Utility Usage of PCMCIA/CitiROM card ============================================== PCMI80CL.SYS ( ATAPI/IDE PCMCIA Client Driver ) ============================================== This driver supports the PCMCIA 2.1+ Card/Socket services specifications. It is mandatory to load this driver before using the STATPCDM.SYS device driver. This device driver is PCMCIA/CitiROM card specific. This driver support both PMIDE-M17 and PMIDE-ASC type cards' I/O addressing technique. Adding in the enabling functions from release v5.0. If no Card/Socket services is installed, the client service will then turn on the socket based on the following syntax. Installation Format: Device = <path>\PCMI80CL.SYS [/Xn] /Xn - Ignore the checking the card service version 1 -- ignore, 0 -- check( default ) /Pn - Set the enabler I/O port. 0 - 150( default ), 1 -160, 2 - 170. /Qn - Set the enabler IRQ selection. 0 to 9 or A to F. A=10. F=15. /Vn - Special value for VIA PCMICA controller 0 ( default ), 1 -- set via mode ============================================== STATPCDM.SYS( ATAPI/IDE CD-ROM device driver ) ============================================== This device driver requires the PCMI80CL.SYS client driver. Install the PCMI80CL.SYS driver before the STATPCDM.SYS driver. Installation Format: Device = <path>\STATPCDM.SYS [/I:n] [/Qn] /D:<drive name> /I:n - how many drive letter to be reserved for plug and play purpose, when using this parameter the CD-ROM drives will not be initialized when system bootup. However, be sure the card is inserted in the system boot up time to allow Card/Socket/Client services to recognize the existence. n must be 1 - 2 Default value is 1 if n is not specified. /Qn - Use Interrupt 1 -- yes( default ), 0 -- no, use polling /D:<drive name> - specified the drive name for MSCDEX to match Defautl name is SCSIDE0 /T - Set Torishan24X CD-ROM mode. Please install MSCDEX.EXE in AUTOEXEC.BAT file as shown below: MSCDEX /D:<drive name> /M:10 ============================================================== STIDEHDD.SYS( IDE Fixed or Removable Hard Disk device driver ) ============================================================== This device driver requires the PCMI80CL.SYS client driver. Install the PCMI80CL.SYS driver before the STIDEHDD.SYS driver. Adding in the FAT32 file system support for DOS7.0( Win95 Rev. B or OSR2 command prompt mode ) and still retain the backward compatibility with FAT16 and FAT12 as well. Installation Format: Device = <path>\STIDEHDD.SYS For disk( diskette ) preparation, please use the DOS supported FDISK and FORMAT utilities. For removable cartridge drive like Fujitsui IDE/MO and SyQuest SyJet drive, FDISK is not available. Only large floppy format supported. ============================================================== STATPFLP.SYS( IDE/ATAPI Removable Hard Disk device driver, LS120 ) ============================================================== This device driver requires the PCMI80CL.SYS client driver. Support LS120 Floppy Drive. Install the PCMI80CL.SYS driver before the STATPFLP.SYS driver. Installation Format: Device = <path>\STATPFLP.SYS For diskette preparation, please use the DOS supported FORMAT utilities. No partition capability supported. III. Product Support List - Not all inclusive ******************** Most IDE or Enhanced IDE ATAPI CD-ROM/Floppy devices are supported even they may not be listed above. New models are constantly added to to the list. Please consult the dealers for updated information. The adapter has been tested under the following environments. All the above supported softwares are for IBM PC AT or compatibles.

Technical tips ************** Use this section as supplement to the Trouble Shooting section in the manual. a. If your notebook or desktop PCMCIA card reader is using the Databook controller, be sure to edit the SuperClient Driver inside the CONFIG.SYS as the following: "device=c:\pcmcia\cardtalk.sys /iow=150-157 /iow=350-357" This will exclude the Cardtalk( SuperClient ) driver to check the io range between the 150-157 and 350-357. b. If your notebook or desktop PCMCIA card read is using the CARDWARE services, be sure to edit the CARDWARE.INI [Resources] section as the following: I/O=0x150,0x10,E,10 I/O=0x350,0x10,E,10 IRQ=15,E c. If your notebook or desktop PCMCIA card read is using the Cirrus Logic Socket service, be sure to exclude the IRQ 15 as the resource for card service. Consult the PCMCIA driver manual to exclude the resouce. d. From Sept. 30, 1996, new version of CitiROM card( called PMIDE-ASC ) is released, it's required to upgrade all of the drivers to the revision level above to function correctly. However, new drivers will recognize and function exactly the same as the older version if you mixing the PMIDE-M17 hardware and new drivers. e. To use the LS120( 128 MB ) IDE Floppy Drive with CitiROM card, please use the in-house designed driver to get the best performance. Not all of the LS120 drive in the market support the IDE Daisy-Chain function. f. For FAT32 file support, please use the v3.1 STIDEHDD.SYS on DOS7.0 only( Win95 Rev. B, OSR2 ). Other DOS levels smaller than 7.0 will not recognize the FAT32 file system and set them to "RESERVED" partition. DOS7.0 will recognize the full HDD as one single Primary DOS partition if size is smaller than 8GB. g. New PCMI80CL.SYS v5.0 come with the enabler support. It will turn on the socket controller if no Card/Socket services installed. I/O port and IRQ selections are programmable via parameters setting. The new client driver is applicable for STIDEHDD.SYS, STATPCDM.SYS and STATPFLP.SYS as well. h. STATPFLP.SYS v4.21 and greater support ZIP, slimline ZIP, LS120, slimline LS120 and Caleb 144 UHD as well. i. When using the PCMI80CL.SYS as enabler for VIA PCMCIA controller, set "/V1" parameter so as to work properly. h. FDISK/Format HDD larger than 8GB is supported from v5.26 and above of "stidehdd.sys".
