What is new in version 3.10
|Small but powerful driver for quickly enable Adaptec APA-1460 SCSI Host Adapter.|
There are three different versions of APA-1460 Enabler: EN1460, CB1460 and UN1460.
All three versions have similar features and differ only by set of supported PC Card / CardBus adapters. Every version works under original DOS 6 and under Win95/98 DOS as well.
Support of SCSI Device normally requires a whole stack of drivers. One of the best set of SCSI Drivers on the market is Adaptec EZ-SCSI software. Usually you need at least an enabler (such as our APA-1460 Enabler), ASPI Manager (such as ASPI2DOS.SYS) and functional driver (such as ASPICD.SYS or ASPIDISK.SYS). Starting with version 3.10 APA-1460 provides build-in ASPI Manager and functional drivers for SCSI Disk and SCSI CD-ROM.
Generally speaking as long as your SCSI devices are limited to SCSI disk and/or SCSI CD-ROM, you no longer need any of Adaptec (or other) SCSI drivers - APA-1460 will do the job. However, if you want support other type of SCSI devices (e.g. SCSI Tape or SCSI CD-Writer) or if you have compatibility concerns, you may combine APA-1460 Enabler with Adaptec (or other) ASPI drivers in any combination.
APSoft ASPI Manager functionally identical to Adaptec ASPI manager. However, APSoft ASPI Manager provides better response time, more flexible set of command-line options and better logging in case of problems. We recommend you to use APSoft ASPI Manager even if you are using functional drivers from Adaptec.
