You're right :) . I was thinking about the 8 Mb/s Falcon/CT2 IDE data transfer

I don't think so. To my knowledge, HD-Driver is the only SCSIDRV implementation 
that supports IDE. But I think it only handles ATAPI devices and not hard 
drives. ATAPI can be seen as a SCSI emulation over an IDE interface.

Of course, in the case of hard drives, it could interpret SCSI commands and 
translate them, but I don't think it currently does.

Maybe Uwe Seimet read us ? Or someone else could check that ?
