Version 1.0.8.0 - July 23, 2013
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem
        CQ70275: BSOD on "Concurrent Hardware And Operating System (CHAOS) Test
        "under Win7 x86/x64".
      Cause:
        CHAOS test is passing a NULL parameter to HwScsiAdapterControl().
        BSOD was caused by driver dereferencing the NULL parameter.
      Change:
        Do not process control command when parameter is NULL.

Version 1.0.7.0 - February 6, 2013
----------------------------------------
  Enhancements:
  =============
  1. Added custom icon support for Win8.

Version 1.0.6.0 - December 21, 2012
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ66554: 57101: Lexar1G get low performance in read/write.
      Cause:
        Driver switched to 1-bit mode when errors were detected during
        data transfers.
      Change:
        Added hold time delay to the 4 data lines to fix the errors.

Version 1.0.5.0 - October 1, 2012
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ65608: Unable to detect MS card 57787.
      Cause:
        The private MS registers have been shifted by 0x100 bytes in 57787.
	Driver needs to access the private registers during card enumeration.
      Change:
        Driver will detect if device is 57787 and shift the private register access
	by 0x100 bytes.

Version 1.0.4.0 - June 18, 2012
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ63714: Install MS driver will BSOD in Win7.
      Cause:
        The new Win8 build environment is linking with the bufferoverflowfastfailk.lib
        which is causing a bugcheck on OS versions prior to Win8. The workaround is
        to use the BufferOverflowK.lib instead by making copy and renaming it to
        bufferoverflowfastfailk.lib.
      Change:
        Use BufferOverflowK.lib instead of bufferoverflowfastfailk.lib.

  2.  Problem:
        CQ63532: Some MS card will disappear few seconds then re-display
                 when running CDM test.
      Cause:
        As part of the error recovery process when the driver switches from parallel
        to serial mode it was notifying the OS that the media was removed. This
        caused the OS to removed the MS card from the file explorer.
      Change:
        Notify that the MS card is busy instead of removed during the error recovery
        process.

  3.  Problem:
        CQ63531: Sony 32M will stop when performing full format.
      Cause:
        Write errors are occurring during formatting of this MS card.
      Change:
        Switch the bus mode to serial from parallel. Using serial mode will result
        in lower performance.

Version 1.0.3.0 - June 5, 2012
----------------------------------------
  Enhancements:
  =============
  1. Migrate to WDK 8400.

Version 1.0.2.0 - May 1, 2012
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        Failed Win8 WHQL test WHCK.
      Cause:
        The MS driver is installed as a SCSI Adapter class driver and the Win8 WHCK
        will automatically run tests according to the driver's class. Since the MS
        driver is not actually a SCSI Adapter driver it will failed these tests.
      Change:
        The MS driver will be installed as a System class driver.

Version 1.0.1.18 - February 22, 2012
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ60514: Read performance is a bit lower for Aspen+ A0 as compare to Aspen B0.
      Cause:
        Driver was using a faster clock source only for Aspen B0 and a slower clock source
        was used for other devices.
      Change:
        Driver will always use the faster clock source.

Version 1.0.1.17 - February 14, 2012
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ61543: Save text document file in MS then re-plug in find the data is lost.
      Cause:
        Change in the last release (Version 1.0.1.16).
      Change:
        Driver will check the Windows OS version and return a success value for the 
        SCSIOP_MEDIUM_REMOVAL command when the card is present if the OS is XP or earlier.
        For Windows OS that is Vista or later driver will return fail.

Version 1.0.1.16 - December 21, 2011
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ60308: Aspen-MS: In Win XP SP3, the eject function in context menu fails.
      Cause:
        Driver was returning an error value for the SCSIOP_MEDIUM_REMOVAL command.
      Change:
        Driver will return a success value for the SCSIOP_MEDIUM_REMOVAL command
        when the card is present.

Version 1.0.1.15 - September 2, 2011
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ56672: Can't detect the card capacity for SanDisk MS Pro Duo 256M.
        CQ56548: Aspen-B0-MS: SanDisk MS Pro 512MB unrecognized on an OEM system
      Cause:
        Data and CRC errors were occurring when accessing the failing cards.
      Change:
        Added error handling to switch to serial mode and a slower clock when
        data and CRC errors are detected.

Version 1.0.1.14 - June 23, 2011
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ56488: Unable to recognize MS card after removing xD card.
      Cause:
        The host controller need to be reset when PnP IRP is trapped.
      Change:
        Added additional check to reset the host controller only when
        a MS card is not present.

Version 1.0.1.13 - June 8, 2011
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ55788: MS standard card disappeared after resuming from S3/S4 mode.
      Cause:
        PnP IRP trapped after resuming from S3/S4 was causing the code to
        reset the card.
      Change:
        Added additional check to reset the card only if the error interrupt
        status was enabled.

Version 1.0.1.12 - May 16, 2011
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ55629: MS card will automatically unmount / remount after waking from S3/S4 mode.
      Cause:
        Code was erroneously removed in the last release as part of the code cleanup to
        make asynchronous the default.
      Change:
        Put removed code back.

Version 1.0.1.11 - April 13, 2011
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        Issues with data & function stacks in asychronous card initialization.
      Cause:
        Some error conditions can cause an early exit from the card initialize
        logic leaving entries on one or both stacks.
      Change:
        Ensure stacks are re-initialized before their use and just before
        exiting normally from the card initialize functions.

  2.  Problem:
        CQ54180: On OEM system, WLK 1.6 system DTM disable/enable with IO test fail.
      Cause:
        Driver was allocating a large uncached block of memory that would sometimes
        failed. This was only done with ADMA2 mode.
      Change:
        Disabled ADMA2 mode and use SDMA mode instead for now. The ADMA2 issues
        will be addressed in the next release.

  3.  Problem:
        CQ53946: On OEM system can't detect MS card when system starting up with
        card plugged in.
      Cause:
        This is most likely due to the clock setting that is too fast for this OEM 
        system when in ADMA2 mode.
      Change:
        Disabled ADMA2 mode and use SDMA mode instead for now. The ADMA2 issues
        will be addressed in the next release.

  Enhancements:
  =============
    1.  Eliminate code dealing with WORKER_THREAD and make asynchronous the
        default.
    2.  Eliminate code used in early testing of testing access to the Memory
        Stick card.
    3.  Turn off power to card when system enters S5.


Version 1.0.1.10 - January 19, 2011
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ52354: System gets BSOD when quick plug/unplug the Memory Stick card
        for a couple times.
      Cause:
        While the previous insertion is running in the state machine another
        attempt to run card initialization is begun.
      Change:
        Modify the code to properly clear the initialization in progress flag
        and refuse to execute another initialization if one is currently
        running.  Added a lot of test code to avoid pushes and/or pops from the
        data and function stacks to prevent over flow and under flow.

  2.  Problem:
        CQ52306: Aspen-B0-MS card is still mounted sometimes when unplug the
        card during file copying to MS.
      Cause:
        No interrupt was generated from the device for the card removal during
        a file copy.
      Change:
        Added handler to periodically poll the card present bit. If card is not
        present and driver think its present then inform the OS that card has
        been removed.


Version 1.0.1.9 - January 18, 2011
----------------------------------------
  Enhancements:
  =============
    1.  Remove two second delay in card initialization as using the CATC_INIT
    calls seem to achieve the same effect with minimal impact on mount time.


Version 1.0.1.8 - January 16, 2011
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        During card initialization the read of the card's status registers could
        fail to cause an interrupt in response to a command.
      Cause:
        Allow either the command done interrupt or a one second timer to occur
        so either can allow the routine to proceed and retry if needed.
      Change:
        Schedule a one second timer and have the state machine permit either
        occurrence to cause the state machine to advance.  Also ensure power and
        clock is stable before attempting to read the card's status registers.
        clock is stable before attempting to read the card's status registers.


Version 1.0.1.7 - January 13, 2011
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ52297: BSOD with quick insert/removal test of MS Pro cards.
        CQ52998: Unable to detect MS card some of the time.
      Cause:
        Data stack used by state machine during card initialization
        was overflowing..
      Change:
        Fixed data stack overflow.

  Enhancements:
  =============
  1.  Added optional build support for driver to perform low-level
      format of MS Standard card.


Version 1.0.1.6 - January 10, 2011
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ51575, CQ51806, CQ51808, CQ51809, CQ51810: Taking too long to
        detect MS Standard cards.
      Cause:
        During MS Standard card initialization sometimes two interrupts
        are coalesced into one. A timeout handler is used to handle the
        coalesced interrupts. The timeout value used was 3 seconds.
      Change:
        Reduced the timeout value to 30 msec.

  2.  Problem:
        CQ51807: Formatting NTFS/exFAT/FAT32/exFAT of MS Standard card
        will take a long time.
      Cause:
        During read/write of MS Standard card sometimes two interrupts
        are coalesced into one. A timeout handler is used to handle the
        coalesced interrupts. The timeout value used was 3 seconds.
      Change:
        Reduced the timeout value to 30 msec.

  Enhancements:
  =============
  1.  Implement asynchronous card initialization.


Version 1.0.1.5 - December 17, 2010
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        Unable to format MS Pro cards.
      Cause:
        Delay in the timer and interrupt wait routines were too short. The
        shorter delay was changed to support MS Standard.
      Change:
        Use shorter delay for MS Standard card and longer delays for MS Pro cards.


Version 1.0.1.4 - December 15, 2010
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ51689:  USB host controller fails to initialize from S4 resume test
        if our MS CR driver is enabled.
      Cause:
        Delay in reinitialize routine causes dropped interrupts from the USB
        host controller.
      Change:
        Remove the delay.

  2.  Problem:
        CQ51574: BSOD when disabling Memory Stick driver.
      Cause:
        Card initialization attempting to use device extension when it has
        been released.
      Change:
        Ensure pointer is zero when unloading.  This may assist in locating
        the issue.  Other changes to detect and abort card initialization for
        Memory Stick standard when disable is handled.


Version 1.0.1.3 - December 13, 2010
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ51573: Unable to format memory stick standard.
      Cause:
        Memory Stick Standard not compatible with ADMA2 buffer size.
      Change:
        Change logic to handle larger transfers.


Version 1.0.1.2 - December 9, 2010
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        Memory Stick Standard does not work.
      Cause:
        Memory Stick Standard not compatible with ADMA2.
      Change:
        Use SDMA for Memory Stick Standard data transfers.

Version 1.0.0.205 - November 04, 2010
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        Remove MS Standard Card then insert XD or SD card, XD/SD card may not work.
      Cause:
        The original code will set the flag "bStatus" to FALSE, it makes the following LM_ResetForReinitialize() is
        executed and this makes XD or SD may not work correctly after MS Standard Card is removed, then XD or SD is
        inserted.
      Change:
        Return from card initialization routine LM_InitializeCard() immediately if MS Standard Card is found.
      Impact:
        None.

Version 1.0.0.204 - November 03, 2010
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ50233 - SD card inaccessible after reloading the MS device (test scenario #2)
      Cause:
        Driver should not do "reset all" while there is no MS card in the slot.
      Change:
        Make MS driver not to do "reset all" when there is no MS card inserted.
      Impact:
        None.

  2.  Problem:
        System hangs with MS Standard card inserted
      Cause :
        Driver was stuck in a for loop while a MS Standard card is inserted. There is a wait in the for
        loop which will stall host cpu for 500ms in each loop and it makes system look like hanging.
      Change :
        Make driver to break out another loop earlier (if the card type is not MS PRO) while doing
        card initialization and return the failure status, so driver will not execute incorrect routine
        which it should not do for MS Standard Card.

  3.  Problem:
        CQ50768 - MS card can't be detected after insert MS card then system wakes from S3 mode.
      Change:
        Issue a media change notification to upper layer, so the scsiport will do device re-scan and find the card.

  4.  Problem:
        CQ50668 - system gets BSOD (D1) while reinserting the MS Card after system wakes up from S3/S4 mode
      Cause:
        The driver is touching an invalid SRB when reinserting the media after returning from S3/S4.
      Change:
        Not to access the invalid SRB after system resuming from S3/S4

  Enhancements:
  =============
  1.  Request:
        Set bit 25 of register 0x180 to improve MS reliabilty on OEM systems

Version 1.0.0.203 - November 01, 2010
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ50233 - Reload MS Driver would break SD file transfer.
      Cause:
        Clock control is the common logic between SD/MMC and MS slots. Clock control register programming
        from driver is allowed only for the active card inserted slot.
      Change:
      Make MS driver doesn't program clock control register when there is no MS card inserted.
      Impact:
        None.

Version 1.0.0.202 - October 27, 2010
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ50649:MS driver v1.0.0.201 causes Aspen B0 cannot detect some SD cards
      Cause:
        The clock switching which increases MS performance should only apply
        when a card is inserted in the MS slot.
      Change:
         Switch the clock only when there is a card present.
      Impact:
        None.
      Notes:
        None.

Version 1.0.0.201 - October 24, 2010
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ46402:Aspen-CR-MS performance lower than USB Card Reader
      Cause:
        The controller was programmed to use a lower frequency clock source
        to driver the Memory Stick bus.
      Change:
         This driver selects a higher frequency clock source to drive the
         Memory Stick bus.
      Impact:
        None.
      Notes:
        None.

Version 1.0.0.200 - October 20, 2010
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        The MS driver is failing the MSFT Velocity test
      Cause:
        The driver is pausing 3s during S3 processing waiting for
        its internal timer to expire.
      Change:
         Disabled this timer wait, which should work for
         the current storage driver model. The older timer wait was for another
         driver model which we ultimately did not use.
      Impact:
        None.
      Notes:
        None.

  2.  Problem:
        Support 8-bit mode switch for Pro Duo HG cards
      Cause:
        The previous driver did not implement the right MS clocking and bus
        width for HG cards, leading to a low performance.
      Change:
         This driver supports switching to 8-bit mode for Pro Duo HG cards.
      Impact:
        None.
      Notes:
        None.

Version 1.0.0.199 - October 17, 2010
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ49749 - Aspen-B0-FPGA-MS: Load_unload MS card device will cause device
        code 10.
      Cause:
        The driver is consuming too much memory during normal operation.
      Change:
         Changed the implementation to consume much less memory.
      Impact:
        None.
      Notes:
        None.


  2.  Problem:
        CQ49891 - Write-Protection doesn't work (MS Pro only).
      Cause:
        There is a bug in the code which cleared the Write Protect state.
      Change:
         Removed the clearing code.
      Impact:
        None.
      Notes:
        None.


Version 1.0.0.198 - September 15, 2010
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ46403 - Issue with Chariot and Memory Stick not working well together.
      Cause:
        Hardware
      Change:
        Attempting a full reset of the host controller and media.
      Impact:
        Possible timeouts in SRB processing.
      Notes:
        This is a test version.  Use of a CATC with at least 10 seconds of event
        recording time is required.  A Gen1 CATC with 2MB is not adequate.  From
        the time data stops, it takes the driver more than 3 seconds to detect
        it.  The full reset will take a second or two and I need at least 3 or
        more seconds of data before the data stopped.

  2.  Problem:
        CQ48390 - Aspen-B0-FPGA_XD_SD: Unable to recognize an xD card
        after SD card was previously inserted.
      Cause:
        Card reader functions for MS & SD require a software reset for all be
        issued so other functions will work properly.
      Change:
        When disable, enable, eject, or insert activities are detected a
        software reset for all is required.
      Impact:

        CQ46795/46436 - Card not accessible after S1/S3/S4.
      Cause:
        Card initialization must begin in serial mode.  During shutdown the
        driver was depending upon turning off the power to change the mode.
      Change:
        Reset card to serial mode during shutdown.
      Impact:
      Notes:

  2.  Problem:
        CQ46226 - Reload LAN driver breaks Memory Stick file transfer.
      Cause:
        Vista's StorPort requires VPD data to be certain the device has not
        been changed.
      Change:
        Implement SCSIOP_INQUIRY VPD Page 0x83 with constant data.
      Impact:
      Notes:

  3.  Problem:
        CQ46235 - File transfer not successfully completed.
      Cause:
        The command complete interrupt occurred and BREQ is set.  Our driver
        continues the ADMA2 register setup, but the second command complete
        interrupt is pending.  When that second command complete interrupt is
        processed in our ISR, it causes the DMA to hang.
      Change:
        If BREQ is set on the first and maybe only command complete interrupt,
        ensure there is no other command complete interrupt pending in the host
        controller.
      Impact:
      Notes:
        This is a partial fix to this CQ.  It does not fix the hardware issue
        where writing stops after the first 512 bytes of a multi-sector block.


  Enhancements:
  =============
  1.  Request:
        Allow removal of the 65536 - 512 size limit on ADMA2 descriptor length
                as a build option.
                Change read/write buffer alignment to 4 bytes.
      Change:
      Impact:
      Notes:


  Restrictions:
  =============
  1.  Memory Stick PRO, PRO Duo, and PRO-HG Duo.
  2.  Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 only.


Version 1.0.0.2 - March 9, 2010
----------------------------------------
  1.  Problem:
        CQ46400 - Sony Pro Duo 16GB failed to format NTFS
      Cause:
        Off by one bug in determining the last LBA that would be accessed by
        this read or write.
      Change:
        Reduce the last LBA number by 1 since LBAs are zero relative and total
        sectors on the media are one greater than the maximum LBA that will
        be accessible.
      Impact:
        NTFS on media that uses all sectors will format correctly.
      Notes:

  2.  Problem:
        CQ46396 - Ungraceful card removal in XP causes BSOD
      Cause:
        Divide by zero when no card present and size of SGL list needs to be
        computed.  Sector size value is zeroed out on removal.
      Change:
        If card is not present or not mounted, do not compute SGL information.
      Impact:
        Eliminates BSOD.
      Notes:


  Enhancements:
  =============
  1.  Request:
        Remove 65536 - 512 size limit on ADMA2 descriptor length.  Change
        read/write buffer alignment to 4 bytes.
      Change:
      Impact:
      Notes:


  Restrictions:
  =============
  1.  Memory Stick PRO, PRO Duo, and PRO-HG Duo.
  2.  Windows XP only.
