 wDrive new firmware version 0.99c .

This is a beta version added softSP support and minor bug fix.

This version supported both smartport and softSP. wDrive automatically detect if it is plugged into a smartport or disk ii. softSP driver will be used when it is plugged into non smartport.


This version is beta since smartport and softSP is new to wDrive and there maybe compatibility issues. For other disk format: woz, dsk,… it is stable. Pls also note that softSP cannot fully compatible with smartport since the driver occupied some extra memory and use different subroutine addresses.


This version does not handle .po smartport image. Pls rename these images to .hdv.


We also found that some apple ii versions cannot successfully boot softSP. We need more feedbacks so that we can improve its compatibility.
